The “Homesteader Wine Press” is a single-tub press with the same basic frame and press screw assembly as our Homesteader Cider Press, just without the grinder. It has been specifically designed as an all-propose fruit press which is capable of efficiently squeezing grapes and other soft fruits and vegetables. See the ‘Essentials Kit’ for other items that are neededGrinder Not IncludedTechnical Specifications: FRAME: The frame is constructed of rugged laminated hardwood. All joints are dadoed and cross-bolted for full structural rigidity. WOOD FINISH: ALL PRESSES COME UNFINISHED! You will need to protect it with varnish, lacquer, EZ-DO Polyurethane Gel. SCREW: The Acme-threaded press screw is 1 1/2″ in diameter, 22″ long, and passes through a heavy cast iron crossarm. Pressure is applied to a reinforced press-disc which fits inside the tub. Attached to the bottom of the screw is a cast iron foot which distributes the pressure to the press-disc. It is suggested that you apply a small amount of lubricant to the screw as well as the inside the pressure foot. See our Petro-Gel Lubricant.
TUBS: The hardwood tub has beveled staves for easy cleaning, it is 12″ high, 13 1/2″ in diameter, and is banded with heavy steel hoops.
