I used to use one of these at my Granparent’s farm when I was a kid. Nice looking project. Brings back good memories.

I’ve got an antique version I need to get going on. Curious what you used to rivet the staves of the bucket to the metal bands and where you got them from. Good looking job on yours.

You did a great job on yours.

The one aove is of a friends that he re-did. It measures 5’ x 4’ x 2’ and weighs a lot! Takes 4 people to move it.

Good looking apple press!

Living here in wine country I can appreciate the need for these. I should build one for my lemons … I wonder if that would work?

I was expecting an iPress! Just some silicon valley humor!
