This press is just as easy to operate as it was to make. Here are the simple steps for how it works. FIRST
Gets some apples
If you can process or crush the apples it works even better. I have read many article that a handed cranked meat grinder works great for this. Well my meat grinder didn't work so good to crush the apples. But It also didn't work so good for meat either so it wasn't a surprise when it didn't work for apples either. (Next time I'm BUYING AMERICAN MADE!!)
Stack a few pucks on the press, cover with left over high density acrylic, and add a few boards. Than set the scissor jack in place.
One nice feature about this press is that it doesn't have an even stand. If you look that the side view pictures in the last post you can see the whole thing only stands on the 4x4 post. This allows the press to rock back and forth. Rock it forward and the juice flows to the collect shoot. Rock it back wards and you can stop it from spilling if you need to switch out buckets.
Finally all that is left is to enjoy the fruits of your labor!
