Getting close to finishing the cider press, attached is the pic of the main juicing box we joined up today, after cutting, gluing, biscuiting and sanding each side. I found a setup on the net using a machine press or shop press, which is basically a bottlejack in a heavy metal frame, with a box and boards for pressing crushed apple cheeses. We built the box in the pic from blackbutt and other recycled hardwoods, along with some timber boards to put within the apple cheeses. Just need to run a router across the press boards, sand and oil and she's done. Will post some pics of the final unit mounted in the press soon. From other presses I have seen, she should press around 3 gallons per press.
