Cider making man.

My husband has a goal for the fall. This goal is to make cider from the apples on my parent's trees. The trees were pruned by him a few weeks ago and he has high hopes for the results. He has spent every spare minute building his cider press and it is nearly completed. The next thing he needs to build is a device to crush the apples into small pieces for better pressing. He has some name for this device that escapes me at the moment. I only hope that no one looses a finger in the process. I want to see him succeed at his goal but I do wonder just how much cider he expects us all to drink?
