Making your own Apple Grinder
Posted by Justin Younker on August 16, 2010 0 Comments
When making an apple grinder for crushing apples, you will probably want to serrate or at least sharpen the teeth on your grinder. A lot of homemade apple press grinders are nothing more than the wood core with screws drilled about three-quarters of the way into the wood. If you are more of the metal working type you can cut strips of aluminum or stainless steel and bend them upright at a 90 degree angle. You can them carve out teeth on the part of the strip that is perpendicular to the wood base. I will post a picture below to help explain. The point is to carve out teeth that are as sharp as possible to create the finest mash as possible.
