Default Press

It doesn't give any pressure measurements in my manual. Gives me alot of information on not using it for any purpose other then sausage filling :~) So whats this gallon of water and coffe can method ? Like you say sounds as thou will be trial and error. Personally thou think it would work pretty slick. Thanks for your help.

In all the searching I've found, you get a basic mold with the kit and just put a bunch of random crap on it for weight - usually a gallon jug of water on top of a bunch of thick heavy books. Size/Weight ratio - a gallon jug of water should be a good bang for your buck.

Let's try this.. I stopped by a local restaurant and got a plastic jar that salad dressing came in. I cut it off at the right height ( short enough to fit in my homemade cheese press), and drilled small holes around the bottom side. I have a wooden follower that fits into the cylinder. the screw of my press pushes on this. The follower fits the inside of the cylinder very closely.

I put all the pressure I can on there with a hand screw. As long as curd doesn't blow out the top, you're OK. I envy your machine. Wish I was the owner of a Dick sausage stuffer.
More like a sock monkey, really...
