Hello Chug,
here is a german webside that shows a more sophisticated manual press
(picture, left).
It consist mainly of a stout box that can be opened to one side and a
steel spindle, like that of a wine press.
Besides straw you can press pretty tough stuff with it, like heather,
chapperal, macchia, cardboard or empty plastic bottles ( good place to
harvest those: whirlpools of mexican or balkan rivers;-) for ground
