This is a replacement pressing disk for the American Harvester and Homesteader presses. It consists of reinforced hardwood to withstand a significant amount of force and provides an even pressure onto your fruit. Please see the image for confirmation of what the disc looks like.

I feel the pressing disk is necessary for a fast paced operation. If you are pressing only one bucket, or box of apples, you can get by, but if you have a large crop of apples then you will enjoy having the second disk to press.
