Guys.
At first I want to say, that I'm a newbie in cheeses ( since past year ). I read very many recipes before start making this press. I found very inconsistent information about pressure of cheeses. I take .XLS files, which found on this forum and convert all info, which I have, in PSI. In some recipes declared pressure around 40-50 PSI. Now I know that it's big mistake, but I doesn't know it before make press. So this press was created for around 800 kilograms on Jack ( 70 PSI ). I'm sure, that no one not need such press for cheese, but show it as construction of press only.
