A garlic press for mutant garlic...

Is it Saturday already? OK, I think it's a mint for making money coins.

Oil then. With such a lever it has to be something hard. Grape stones maybe.

Nothing to do with grapes or the oil contained therein.

Not a cheese press.

Looks like it could be an old cheese press. Still looking for a picture though...

<edit>Here's a similar contraption - [home.btconnect.com...] </edit>

Nice try pmkpmk, but not a dough press.

I guess wooden presses have a similar look. However, this has a very specific purpose.

HERE's [images15.fotki.com] another one.

Potatoes. You slice them into small pieces and then you press the water out. Gives you starch.

Not for gin or saddles. As I understand it, the contraption was used in the kitchen.

Well, I have looked high and low for both butter and soap presses, and neither of them match :(

Perhaps a Paul Bunyon burger press?

Dang, here I was looking for a 19th-century artillery shell gunpowder packer ;-)

Here's [images16.fotki.com] another one with a different look. This device can press what the others press plus more.

Honey gets pressed? I though it gets centrifuged?

I didn't see anything about cider. I guess you could press apples, but I'm not exactly sure - but it's not for cider.
