I've no experience with it, but noted that the wood is untreated. Make sure to get a good food grade sealer and seal it before you use it.

This happened about five years ago and the price kept going down until it hit about $89. Lots of folks were waiting till next payday to buy and all of a sudden the price bumped back up to over $300. Just saying, grab it while the grabbing is good.

The press arrived today and looks great. I also bought a pint of EZ DO. This may be a silly question do I have to clean the wood first or can I just go ahead and apply the EZ DO? I will clean the press before i use it.

Also what type of lubricant do you recommend for the threads?

As long as its smooth and clean, it'll be just fine. Helpful hint for this product: apply it with a brush, then wipe with a clean cloth. The sealer is viscous and will clump up easily. The brush will ensure good coverage, the cloth will get rid of the extra. Do take the time to remove the hoops, one at a time to get underneath there, wine will get in there. I did two coats as recommended, it has performed as expected.
