Found a great deal on Craigs List.  Just bought this one for $150.

Size of a 6 or 7 gallon bucket and like new.  Will be putting it to use shortly.

And JPBeegetter,
That "Undies" idea is great.  Will be looking for some to put inside this press.

You put a potato in it and squeeze the handles to make mashed potatoes. Works great with handfuls of comb. Presses out the honey and leaves a little puck of wax. Make sure you get a heavy-duty one or it won't last. This is the one I have:

Well, to each his tools for his needs.  I've been working about thirty hives this season - mostly foundationless - and that wine press would suit my needs just fine.
