The 25 cents was for a cylindrical Tupperware container that I bought at the thrift store. We had all the scrap wood, screws, and the dumbells for weights (along with the Amazon gift bag to hold them). He drilled holes in the Tupperware container and mostly followed some cheese presses that were on Youtube, using what we had on hand, of course.
It works great. You start out with the hole to the far right for least pressure, then the middle hole for more pressure, then the last one on the far left. I put a cookie sheet under the Tupperware, and for the first pressings, I put a wide mouth jar rim underneath it to hold it above the draining liquid.
The follower is a round piece of plywood that I secured in a ziplock bag.
Thanks, but we don't get the newspaper. We also get free firewood in exchange for eggs (and a bit of elbow grease.) We don't use much firewood, because we have a greenhouse on the south side that basically serves as our daytime heat, leaving only some really cold nights. But thanks for the idea.
