Enjoy freshly-made juice, cider or wine with the Homesteader Wine Press . Made in the traditional frame and screw assembly style, this unit is easy-to-use and durable. This single-tub press is the same design as the complete press, but without the grinder. The grinder is available for purchase separately if desired at a later date.
The solid fame is made of rugged laminated hardwood. Each joint is carefully dadoed and cross-bolted for a solid construction.The press screw is Acme-threaded, 1 1/2" in diameter, 22" long. It passes through a heavy cast iron cross arm. Press pressure is applied to the reinforced press-disc that is located in the tub. The cast iron foot is attached to the bottom of the screw so that pressure is evenly distributed. The hardwood tub is easy to clean with beveled staves. It measures 12" high by 13 1/2" diameter and is banded with heavy steel hoops.
This press is designed as an all-purpose unit, effectively working on grapes, and other soft fruits and vegetables. Crushed apples can also be pressed.
The Homesteader is so easy to use. Simply load up your desired fruit (into pressing bag; included), place the pressing disk on top and start churning with the handle. The juice will flow to the bottom and fill your pitchers with the freshest juice ever!
