I would love to purchase one of your presses but im just not quite there yet with the money. I was reading another post and Sailor was saying that most of the recipes in Ricki Carroll's book that the weights are way low, only because that is all there presses can handle and are also relative to the size of mold. He was saying that he sometimes uses up to 250 lbs of pressure. That said, I came across this searching google images and, until i can afford something nice like your model, what do you think about this and do you think it could handle a good bit of weight. It can be built for next to nothing.
