12 or 20 ton bottle jack for home made cider press (please)?
I'm making a homemade cider apple press with a pommace bucket of 30cm diameter and 30cm deep. I'm wondering if a 12ton or 20ton bottle jack would be best to squeeze all that lovely juice out? (Forget the frame construction as I can change that to suit ;-)
The reason for the query is that the 12ton bottle jack is only 8kg but the 20ton jack is 14kg - a difference serious enough for me to consider downgrading.
Do you have a bottle jack press or knowledge of them? Do you think 12 or 20 tons is better for the size bucket I've said (30cm dia x 30cm high)?
