cast iron fruit press

This is a cast iron fruit press.

Before there were electric juicers, if you wanted fruit juice, you had to squeeze fruit by hand.

You would crush the fruit in the bucket with the hand crank, then pour out the juice.

It was also used to crush fruit for jam and preserves.

Sometimes it was used to make wine.
