Cider Press assembled

Now the paint is dry and the cider press is assembled. The upright frame fits under the deck between two cleats to hold it in place during use. You just lift off the deck and it comes apart in two pieces. The platform weighs less than 17 pounds and the press frame less than 21 pounds so they are easy to move and store. When standing on the deck the press can not rotate as the big screw is cranked down.
