Thank you for your kind reply.
I have seen the "Sturdy Press" design it looks nice and I sort of understand how it works plus I've emailed Smolt1 and had some great advice too.
Unfortunately, he only makes the press for the USA & Canadian market due to postage problems which I can understand.
He has however set me a set of plans so I could make one, if I was that talented which I am not.
So at the moment and trying to find a woodworker who could make me one.
Still, I am sure that will work out in due course.
Ref: Your PS: A brewery tour through the Midlands, sounds like fun, if only I was allowed to drink Alcohol again, But in my younger years I know I'd had enough when I could not reach the bar from the floor.
Never been to the States to get drunk in those days, went to Alberta, Canada a few times managed it there.
May I suggest next time you cross the pond, visit Lincoln Cathedral & Castle that houses the Magna (whatever).
England at present is alive with micro breweries many of which are worth a visit plus you can buy a book about the best of them.
