    Do you think that you can create a sugarcane juicer in the forest? Today, we will show you a clever way to make one by some stems, bamboo tubes and a pot.

    Firstly, cut down two straight stems. Next, boil the bark of stems. Dig two holes on the ground to fix four main pillars. Then, use a knight to hewn some holes in stems to fix them with the pillars. Remember to keep a suitable space between two stems so that the sugarcane can penetrate.

    Hope this helps!

    Wow. That was almost painful to watch. All that work, and half the juice missing the trough because it was so far below the rollers...

    I think if I needed to squeeze a bit of sugarcane juice, I'd make a hinged crusher like a nutcracker with a long lever arm and a bucket below.

    Crush the cane maybe four inches at a time with body weight & leverage.

    I would think that river bed stone might be a bit more efficient .
    As beloved as sugar is , it's not a necessary food , actually weakened the roman legions .

    As a kid, I would just chew on it and swallow the juice, then spit out the pulp. Don't need that much sugar. It was just a little sweet treat.

    A whole lot of work before they could even begin with the pressing...

    Why not just harvest, clean the cane, chop it up and boil out the sugar? You have to boil the pressings anyway. Just cut out that part and boil down the results... Much less work.

    Here in Cambodia, this is how they extract the juice from sugarcane:

    Sugarcane is commonly found throughout the country.

    Same with me.

    We used to have a mule powered sugar cane mill...

    We have a human powered roller press that could easily press sugar cane, we press pretty much everything else. Cane has to be imported in here, so it's probably not very practical for us, still, an inteesting idea! Then We have the Grist mill, it would be best to grind into a pulp and then boil out the sugars in a charn and you end up with the granules same as store bought! Prolly the fastest and most efficient use if tools and equipment and lowest effort for the end result!
