how to make a sorghum/ sugar cane mill?

i have been looking at growing sorghum and processing to make my own syrup.. i need to extract the jiuce and all extractors look like an old clothes wringer.. does any one have any idea how to make a sorghum/ sugar cane mill? i found a hand powered one, but this should be a fairly decent project for a home project

You may also search the web for the Spanish word trapiche,
 which was used by the Spanish colonies to extract molasses from the sugar cane. You will find different kinds of trapiches.
