So I am pretty excited about using the Norwalk. I ordered the stainless steel version identical to the picture below. It should be coming in the next week or two. I had a hard time convincing my wife to make the investment of roughly $2,500 dollars understandably but I think further down the road she may soften to the purchase given usage. I am trying to take care of myself while I am young, and tough I definitely do not need a Norwalk to do this it does provide more means and motivation to do so.

I can't get past the price tag, though. For me the opportunity cost would be too high, I can think of too many other things for that cash that I need far worse (like a tractor, or an overhaul for my dead van). But I do understand that each of us in this world is at a different place on the curve of marginal utility per dollar of disposable income. And boy that looks like a lot of fun to have on your kitchen counter.
That is a serious machine. You can extract more juice and, more importantly, juice from herbs and medicinals that other machines just can't get.
I will be stuck with my shop press version for a while, that is simply not in my price point.
