I did a pretty detailed review on the Piteba back in - http: I ended up using shelled pumpkin seeds pepitas from the store bulk bin. I emailed with the maker and he suggested adding a bit of water to the flax because the shells can be so hard they make it impossible to press the seeds by hand, but I never had a chance to try it out.
I had made a facial oil from it last time and it was fantastic, I was not happy when I ran out and I look forward to having some homegrown. I can also grow hazel here and so I will probably eventually try that also. OH and for those of you in tropical climates - I was also able to press pieces of dried coconut, I bought one for the purpose.
Cut it into chunks and let it dry thoroughly, and then pressed it. Probably not the most efficient way to press coconut but it still worked. I will agree that the Piteba is perhaps a little small for a homestead size. Having said that, I think if someone was ingenious enough to rig it up to a bike or something, and build a larger funnel cone for it, that would make a big difference production wise.Gerson Lopes Teixeira, Saeed M.
