My HIGHLY-simplified Dutch-style cheese press. At 30" from the fulcrum, I tested it with 25lbs of hanging weight and I got almost 150lbs at the load arm (which what I was aiming for in the test) and it didn't bend/snap, so it appears to be accurate and that's all that matters (and it cost me less than $30 to make, so yeah!).

I like it! Been thinking of trying to make one as well... maybe this will give me the shove I needed.
