    I wasn't really looking for this, but happened upon it on craigslist. I have always wanted a cider press and mill, but really wasn't at a place to get one because I don't have any apple trees yet! But when a deal comes along, sometimes you just can't pass it up! The person I bought it from had purchased it at a sale several years back. He had it sandblasted and painted, then let it sit. He had several other presses that he had restored and said this one was actually in very good condition.

    That's pretty cool!

    Are you planning on putting a press together and using it?

    Quote:Yes, I'll probably start working on restoring it to working condition this winter. And yes, I most certainly plan on using it!
