I live in North East Victoria and also enjoy wine and woodwork. Your article on making a wine press is very interesting, I have decided to make a press for next years vintage thank you very much for the article, it is great.
I am preparing to build a wine press with your plans as a guide (for which I thank you)... I have some different ideas on how to put this press together and if they are successful, I will pass them on to you.
I wanted to thank you for putting up the page on the wine press... I was wondering if you thought about building a crusher. There's a description for one in winemaker mag. But no pictures and I can't make heads or tails of the instructions. There seems to be even less on the web about home built crushers.
Thanks again for the press info!
By using your plans and with a few changes I made this press. Thank you for the plans and help from your web site.
Just saw your wine press on the net. That helps solve that problem well done.
I have seen your
impressive wine press design and wonder if you have heard
of anyone using it to press oil from olives, or if you
think it would do that.
I was very impressed with the press and the amount of effort you have put into the documentation.
