Wine press

Posted by Celia on April 25, 2003


I don't understand what the phrase 'with a wine press converted for the task' in the following paragraph. Could anyone do me a favor?

By utilizing a process whereby each letter was moulded individually and was then continuously reused, he was able to produce texts - most famously a 42-line Bible of 1282 two-column pages around 1457-8- with a wine press converted for the task.

Thank you a lot.
