Found some scrap plastic at work and made my own press with some of that cut and machined to hold a the drilled cup (I don't remember what that thing was called!). I used 4 threaded rods to hold the upper portion of the press and a piece of PCV to go between the top part and the press plate.

Still have not used the thing. Supposed to be a winter project, but stuff keeps getting in the whey. Curd be I'll find time this weekend. I got all the stuff to make cheddar, but I wonder if the enzymes go bad? I've had it frozen for like 2 years. I can make some mozz and see if the rennet is still good.
