Pedal-powered apple grinder

From the MAKE Flickr pool shares pics of this human-powered apple munching machine, constructed for their annual Ciderfest –

Aluminum tube mounted on elevated plywood frame, with space underneath for a 5 gallon bucket to catch apple pomace.

1″ shaft through the tube, with a 25lb flywheel and 18t bicycle freewheel mounted on flange bearings.

Mmmm … I do loves me some cider! If you’re in the Atlanta area, be sure to check out Ciderfest on Saturday Sept. 5 – looks like a good time!
