No worries, not offended at all! I've been searching Craigslist and eBay for some time.Rocky said:Novalou, I want to apologize. If my posting offended you, I am truly sorry. I did not notice that you are relatively new to the forum. Many people start by making kits, move to juice, then to fresh grapes. For that reason, many people are looking for a crusher or a crusher/destemmer (including yours truly). Depending on where you are in the country, you may find one on Craigs List. Here in Ohio, Craigs List is seldom effective and I am competing with several of our members so it would be a race to get to the seller. Ebay would be another source but most of those I have seen on there are very old, expensive and shipping would be high.
Good luck in your search.
Probably with a little disassembly. Looks like the hopper would eat up most of that shipping cost due to its size.Rocky said:Thanks, Jimmy. Those are some really good buys. I wish I were closer. Someone on the forum probably is. Can these be shipped to the US without too much hassle?
Midwestsupplies.com has the hand crank painted crusher destemmer for $315. I may get that, it's pretty cheap!Rocky said:Thanks, Jimmy. Those are some really good buys. I wish I were closer. Someone on the forum probably is. Can these be shipped to the US without too much hassle?
I have one just like this. The one I'm after has the perforated basket underneath to catch the stems.LoveTheWine said:I posted my own add on Craigslist (Vancouver Island): Grape crusher wanted $100 or less.
Within a few days I got a response and ended up buying this one for $50
WOW ... looking through the listing ... you NEVER see any of that equipment on CL here or anywhere within 150 miles of here. Every now and then you will see an "antique fruit press" for sale that's practically unusable for $200+.
