Although we don't have any standing presses that are of the do-it-yourself
variety I can certainly attest to the high volume nature of standing
presses.  We have 6 full size (approx. 8 feet tall) cast iron presses and
many others of various sizes.  We use 4 of the full size presses on almost
a daily basis with an approximate monthly average of 2500 volumes.  The
only draw back to the standing press is a 24 hour drying time but we've
become accustomed to it.
