Anyone built one of these and have the plans?
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
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!
Thanks Buster and Nige!!! Looks like a plan. Iook forward to a DIY disaster:-)
