    Default wine press

    Hi,

    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. :wink:

    He modified a wine press so that it could be used as a printing press.
