I just found a brand new #30 ratchet win press for $200.00, the very detailed pics show that it has never been used.
From all of the searches that I've done, $350-$400 is the average price for a # 30.
Now to find a crusher/destemmer, and I'll be able to start making wine from fresh grapes!

Yep I paid $420 plus freight to get mine shipped to me. You better buy it fast and then run like you stole something!

Hey Tom, I recognize that one and they had a huge recall on it, think twice before using. I believe they called it non può spremere una zucca.

Mike,
Yes, I forgot to mention that, this was another Craigslist find!
It really pays to do multiple narrowed down searches.

Thanks!
Now the search for a crusher/destemer, although, I've heard that the folks at M&M will crush & destem for a small fee, this might be an option for this fall, but I don't want to get ahead of myself, one step at a time.

Presque Isle has a set up for Home Winemakers for free with a bladder press.

I would think about coating the bottom plates (the semi circle wood that lays on the grapes) and the cribbing with EZ-Do.
