Some nice folks emailed me awhile back asking for my thoughts on building an apple cider press of their own, similar to the one I built. We talked back and forth a bit and discussed stuff I liked about mine and stuff I would do differently if I were to make another one.
Attached are some pics of their finished product and a bit of text describing their setup. I think it is super exciting to make homemade cider so congratulations to my new web friends on a job well done!
from the builders…
“here are some pictures of our press. We ended up making ours a lot shorter, because the bottle jack wouldn’t reach. The holes in our pot were 5/32″ diameter one inch apart around the bottom, and two inches apart in two staggered rows up the side of the pot (the blue tape is just so that I can keep the height semi-even). I love your set up it was very inexpensive, and easy to build.”
