The press worked like a charm. My only complaint was the mold that I used. I used a 4" x 15" white pvc mold and it was very hard to flip the cheese and reinsert into the mold. I went out and got a 6" x 8" so it should be easier from here on. I made the follower for it today, so next one will be a thicker wheel. Cheese came out nice however, nice little 3lb cylinder 4" x 10".
