A member of the public brought in a sugar cane press that may be more than a century old. It dates back to the time when these presses were mule drawn and possibly even people powered.  It had a wooden board bolted to the top and people or a mule walked around it to turn the crank that crushed the sugar cane. The sugar cane was fed between the rollers which crushed it, and then ejected the juiced cane out of the other side.

 The juice poured out of the spout at the bottom.
