I have a recent acquaintance who just finished building a very nice cider press. I have some pictures I will post below. It is somewhat comparable to the Correll Press, although I like the differences between the two. He is both a woodworker and metalworker so building a cider press was right up his alley. A few highlights are: he buys old pressing tubs from yard sales or other places, then cuts them for the bands around the tubs. This way there aren’t any seems or overlapping on the cider press tubs, very nice idea. And using the aluminum and stainless steel, they won’t rust and should last many many years. He also makes all of his presses with electric grinders, so no fly wheel or manual crank to crush the apples. One of my favorite aspects of his press if the apple grinder. He makes it entirely of aluminum and/or stainless steel and as you can see from the picture below, it will cut through, crush, and “eat up” apples with ease. His grinder is my favorite piece of his apple press. If you are interested in one of his presses, just let me know. He makes 5-10 a year and sells them for around $700. Enjoy the pictures!
