Homemade Grape Crusher

I discovered this grape crusher on line two years ago and fabricated my own version. I can crush 5 gallons of grapes in 2-3 minutes using my drill. Check out the last image which is a video of Steve’s unit.
I left off the de-stemming tray and just set the crusher right on a 6 gallon plastic bucket.

I encourage all with a few simple woodworking skills to study the photos and make their own. Very inexpensive and superior to any manual (i.e. foot crushing) process.

  5. I tried to cut and paste this link both with the spaces and with underscores instead of spaces. Neither one worked. Darn, I wanted to see it too. Maybe he’s going to try making and selling it himself.

  6. Wayne, I looked into this. Apparently the website stevehughes.org no longer exists.
