This should be snurrer. Han snurer flasken. drejer is to turn.

Ha, so that's where the Finnish word 'dreija' (also 'vääntöpyörä') = 'potter's wheel' comes from!

I thought (with my Afrikaans knowledge - 'Hy draai die bottel') it means: He turns/rotates the bottle (e.g. so that the label face the front).
