The cure for boredom is curiosity, there is no cure for curiosity, so I estimated the specs of your press

Looks like a MA of about 3.5.

The weight of 2 2x4's 40 inch long is about7.2 lbs.

The plunger is about 1 lb

Then your minimum pressing weight (no weights on the lever arm) is about 13 lbs.

Maximum pressing weight is about 1/4 the weight of your house.

GREAT FOR CHEDDAR!
