    wine press


    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:
