Old mashing machines by quicksilver

Old mashing machines

These machines are actually used for crushing the apples or pears to create the pulp that then goes into the presses to extract the juice for fermentation.
A real blast from the past --

@islambad Thank yo for being so concerned. I am fine thanks but was house sitting for a friend in Norfolk while they were away in Japan. I was very sorry to see that you have had to change your 365 account again. What a nuisance for you. Very glad you decided to remain.
