Well, Wayne, I think that you should test drive it and make a video.

Oh, my!  Can you just imagine how cheese curds would gum up that little contraption?

Linux - great photo of the curd milling station. Where did you find that? Is that commercially available?

Sailor, yep, but it's made in the UK as a custom fabrication, not mass produced. I think Jongia UK is a distributor: http://www.cheesemakingshop.com/

Farmer, if you don't want to fabricate it, here's another option:


Amazon and restaurant stores sell them.

There are motorized french fry cutters out there for $200-$400 if you don't want to do the work, and there are also more heavy duty manual ones in the $50 range.
Taking an extended leave (until 2015) from the forums to build out my farm and dairy. Please e-mail or PM if you need anything.

The fry cutter reminds me of grandmas Veg-O-Matic.  That must've been one of Ron Popeil's earlier gadgets and it worked really well.
