Homemade fruit juices, fruit butters, cider, vinegar, wine, brandy—these are all good reasons for including a juice press on the list of tools that belong on a small, self-sufficient farm. Designs for juice presses consisting of five basic components—grinder, press, framework, juice-funneling system, and catch basin—are available from various companies as plans, kits, and fully constructed units. Use of the juice press need not be confined to that short time in autumn when cider appears on roadside stands. Fresh cider can be made as long as your supply of apples lasts in cold storage. Outside of apple season, the juice press is ready to go to work just as the blueberries, strawberries, cherries, peaches, ;md pears come into season to make fine homemade juices, jellies, and wines,

The single most important element in piice extraction is the efficiency of the grinding mechanism in turning the fruit into pulp. For maximum yield, every cell should be crushed. The press itself is only responsible for squeezing the juice from ruptured cells and does little to whole fruit. For this reason, grinders can be acquired separate from the pressing mechanism and framework,

A sharp, . ainless steel-bladed toller is needed to cut through the tough skins of apples and chop them into pulp. Softer fruits like grapes and berries require less chopping. The squeezing action of cast-iron, ridged rollers does an adequate pulverizing job on these softer fruits. Both hand-operated and motorized crushing rollers are available. The best hand grinders have a flywheel and a three- or four-to-one gear ratio for the handle to give momentum to and take the rough spots out of the stroke.

The pressing plate can be driven by a hand-cranked press screw, a hydraulic jack, or even a car bumper jack. It is important that the framework of the press be rugged, and it is usually made of cast iron or rigidly constructed hardwood. After the fruit is crushed, the pulp is wrapped in cheesecloth and placed either inside a framework of vertically arranged wooden slats or on press trays composed of horizontal slats. The pressure exerted by die press sends the juice through the grooves in the framework to an exiting funnel.

most important of which is an automobile bumper jack to act as a pressing mechanism. No grinder is provided on this unit, but apples may be satisfactorily pulverized with a kitchen food grinder before pressing.

Three pounds of ground fruit can be pressed at one time. Wrapped in cheesecloth, the pulp is placed inside a strong-framed press box. Routered grooves lead to exit holes which allow the juice to drain to a pan below.

the bench boitom, a broad face against the legs. Use glue and 16d nails, driving the nails through the support into the legs, and through the bench into the support. Using a short 2 x 4 as a temporary spacer, locate the second lower support crossmember and glue and nail it in place. Then remove the spacer.

Inside Hammer Mill

'Jl/t-inch pieces of yrinch plywood, the« glue and nail them together. using ttd nails, forming the juice box, f, Place the hox in position, centered on the bench between the supports. Scribe a line on the benchtop around the inside of the box. Remove the box, then drill three rows of i/j-inch holes through the bench. You must locate the rows of holes so they penetrate the bench in front of, between, and behind the supports. The juice will run out of the box through these holes. To speed that process, a crosshatch pattern of grooves should be routered into the bench within the confines of the box. In doing this, be sure not to damage your router bit on the nails you've driven into the bench to secure the jack support crossmembers. Now replace the box and toenail it in place with fid nails. Cut two 11 ¡/¡-inch and two 10-inch lengths of 1 x 1 stock and using 6(1 nails, fasten them to the bench rt-ound the outside of the box.

5. Modify the bumper jack. The jack shaft socket in the base must be cut off so the shaft will pass through the base. Then the ratchet mechanism must be welded to the base, so the base moves up and down the shaft with the ratchet mechanism. A welding shop can do this work quickly and inexpensively.

6. Cut two 6-inch lengths of 2 x 4. With a hacksaw and chisel, cut a groove across the center of a broad face of each to accommodate half the thickness of the jack shaft. The two blocks are then sandwiched with the end of the shaft between them, as shown. Drill a % „-inch hole through the three-piece
