Tortilla Press

Post by Bangalore » Tue Jan 05, 2016 11:45 am

Love making homemade tortillas. I figured it was time to stop using a pie pan to press them out.

I had some pecan drying in the basement from a tree cut out of my yard a few years ago. I used it for the plates. The handle is some scrap mahogany pieced together in layers. I used mineral oil for a food safe finish. The joints are simply doweled, so every single part is wood. I like it; it is useful and elegant.

I do everything in Fusion 360. It's a great solution for CAD and CAM, and the price can't be beat. No, I don't work for Autodesk; I'm just a fan of this product. I've attached an STEP file, which I think is fairly accessible for most people.

No longer have a Shapeoko, but use a machine of my own design...

Great project!
Looks very good. Must be a great feeling to make something that is actually use full :)
I always end up with doing not-so-usefull projects ;)
