The (semi) final iteration.
I thought I'd just post the almost last design change of my cheese press. I say "almost" because you will not that there are no legs on it...yet. I plan to cut dowels to fit into the existing holes and make legs, and probably I'll make a groove or two from the center of the cheese mold to the edge to carry away the liquid from pressing.
Note the 6-inch stainless steel mold. I priced these online from $84.50 for a 5-1/2 inch mold. I had the local machine shop make me one for $25.00. I think he did a great job, and it works wonderfully. My 4-inch mold was even less expensive--the tin from Sesame Tahini, exactly 4-inches and a perfect size for a small cheese.
