I now sell a Piteba nutcracker as well as olive oil attachments and spare parts, check amazon for other listings. Will not work for Olives, Olive pits, grape seeds, or any stone fruit. The press does not come with the top hopper or a container to catch the oil. It comes with everything else pictured. The hopper is made by cutting the top off a plastic pop or water bottle. Particulars of the Piteba oil expeller: Worldwide many oil containing seeds are produced or gathered from wild plants. Small scale processing of the seeds is frequently not an option or the oil extraction rate is too low. The PITEBA oil expeller fulfils a need in this respect. It is a low cost expeller for the small scale oil seed processor. Almost any conceivable oilseed with more than 25% oil to seed can be processed, normally without any pre-treatment. Oil and press cake can be sold in the local market respectively for household use or as protein concentrate in animal feed. Processing of home grown as well as purchased oil seeds is possible. However, the PITEBA is also ideally suited to serve a migrating contractor going from farm to farm. A few of the most important characteristics that makes the PITEBA oil expeller suitable for remote areas in tropical and sub tropical countries are: manually operated by one person only simple operation sturdy design very little maintenance high extraction efficiency low price easily adaptable to many different oil seeds The PITEBA oil expeller is compact, reducing freight costs. A clear and illustrated user manual is included with each expeller. If needed this manual can be supplied in various languages beside English. NEW: The package also contains a multifunctional tool with metric wrenches which should also be used for correction of the moisture contents of the seeds or nuts. Dimensions Size: 20 x 13 x 6 cm (app. 8 x 5 x 2.5 Inch ) Total weight: 2.3 Kilo ( app. 5 LB )

got this for kitchen use and works for kitchen use.
Turns out, it's not that hard. I few hand fulls of black oil sunflower seeds from the bird seed section of you local home center and you're in business. It helped me to watch some of the you tube videos on how to do it and a little bit of tweaking the expeller cap - was all it took to get more oil than I expected. Over the last month, I've made almond oil and sesame oil too. Both a little different but all have been easy enough to figure out.
A few tips:
- Make sure you mount the press on something very sturdy. I have mine bolted to a piece of 2x10 that I clamp to my kitchen counters - I think it could be more sturdy.
- I recommend finding a source for the washers used to protect the auger from the expeller. I lube the daylights out of mine but I'm still seeing some seeds / shells get stuck in there and damage the washers. Luckily it hasn't ruined either the auger or the expeller yet. I've also tried some thrust bearings but the ones I found have a plastic race and the expeller stays to warm for that to work well. Seems the size of the washers isn't common (maybe someone else knows where to purchase a box of them) :)
- crank slowly
- make small adjustments as you go to fine tune how fast you produce cake
- wait the 10 minutes at start up - as mentioned in the instructions, before adding seeds and cranking
- after waiting 2 days for the sediment to drop out of the oil, put it through an unbleached coffee filter - makes it look as good as store bought oil (and it smells great!)
Thanks what's worked for me.
Specialty cooking oils are expensive and making your own is easier than I thought it would be.
I hope you have good luck too.
