Here in France , I can get hold of walnuts quite cheaply even free but how do I go about getting Wallnut oil ?
Anyone any cheap plans for making a press or similar machine or know where I could buy one for a reasonable price.

presses are probably more effective, but mashing and boiling is also used to extract nut and seed oils by folks who don't have access to a press. strain the liquid, then collect the oil off the top.

I wonder if one could do an oil infusion or tincture and extract the yummy goodness too? I really hate over heating things that don't need to be. Heat and oxidation destroy so much good in our plants.
 
Been there. Done that. Went back for more. But this time, I took this tiny ad with me:
