Wanted:
Fruit Press or Apple Press?

Do you have one? Maybe one you're not using and would be willing to part with for a rea$onable price?

 

I want one.

 

Must be able to crush apples into cider.

Here is a good thread on using a sausage stuffer to make cider - http://www.smoked-meat.com/forum/showthread.php?t=9952&highlight=stuffer+apple

 

Just noticed your post and thought maybe you could use some ideas with your stuffer.

I have a 5lb Grizzly, but the gears are plastic.  Hrmmm... this bears looking in to. I finally figured out how to see MossyMO's link (I had to join That Other Forum) and they're still hypothesizing. I'm waiting on this one...

I believe LEM 5 lb. replacement stuffer gears (metal) will replace the gears in your Grizzly. Better to have them if your stuffer breaks down than to not have them a ruin a sausage project. http://www.lemproducts.com/product/1470/Vertical_Stuffer_Parts

For 430 it may be worth a shot. If they don't fit... have you ever returned something at LEM? Are they pretty good about it?

Princess, the LEM Gears fit, they are the same machine other than the gears...

 

Be careful using the stuffer as a press as it also has a plastic plate.  I would grind the apples first then put the grindings in some cheesecloth and then run them through the stuffer to press the juice out.

 

Or you could just run the apples through an electric juicer.  I have a Jack LaLaine Juicer that works great for extracting juice...

You got skills?  I have a 20 ton press, seems to me a plate, the fits inside a cylinder with a hole would do the trick, and then let the press do its thing.  I crush oil filters this way, don't think you want to use it to press apples.  Juice and 5w30 does not go together.

 

Or Mother Earth lets you know how to build one out of wood, again got skillz?
