Strangely enough, Jules I've been digging around the internet for one of these. I can across one that uses a food grade bucket with lots of holes drrilled aound it, a circular bit of ...i'll find it and link it as this will be easier.  And now I can't find it....


Basically you cut holes in a big bucket, reinforce it with big cable ties so it's strong, cut a piece of wood that is round and just fits in the barrel, put the apples in a muslin bag, put the round bit of wood on top, on top pf that get a thick bit of wood and on top of that a car jack. Now the difficult part is that the jack has to puch against something and you need to build a REALLY sturdy frame.


I'm going to give it a bash I think


Cheers. Nige.

Ahh thats just what we did!


We used half a wooden barrell - old cider one , not one from the garden!!


And used  one of those props that are used to hold up beams - would it be an acro!!


Tightened  against a huge barn beam, although watch out the beam doesnt lift!!


The apples were mashed up with a heavy thingy that was probably ment to flatten hard core!
