Nothing special but it works great. I have to thank Steve for his post that inspired my design.
This is just made from the scrap bin.

Thanks for looking
Terry

I never saw one of these in use. Is it for making homemade tortillas? We get ours in a plastic bag at the store. But you did a cool job on the build. Steve’s projects are always fun.

Maybe if I make the press for her my wife will do the homemade ones! Worth a try.

My wife makes awesome homemade tortillas but for some reason she’s told me not to build one of these. I may do it anyway. If anyone wants the recipe, I’ll ask her. (Do I lose my man card for offering to share a recipe on LJ?).
