if you only want to make a gallon or two just use a cheese grater or food processor with a grater attachment to grate the apples and then squeeze it out by hand through some muslin or just your hand.

try it - buy an apple, grate it and squeeze out as much juice as you can - you'll be impressed.

don't over complicate things

My parents used to make us help can produce in the summers when we were kids, and we used one of these:

worked great for tomatoes. I haven't tried it for apples, but if i can find a source for good cider apples in my area, i was thinking about getting one. Seems like you'd have to cut up the apples to get them in the hopper though.

on second thought, maybe the squeezo wouldn't work so well. seems it's more for making apple sauce than making juice. you'd probably still have to press it if you ground the apples with a squeezo.

I have a Victorio brand "squeezo" and it makes fantastic apple sauce, but straining the juice would be a pita. When pressing cider one generally grinds it up rather coarse.
