Shively's patented invention "relates to the construction of cider-presses; and it consists in revolving a cylinder having sliding arms working within a scroll-shaped case. These arms are caused to slide out of the cylinder and strike the scroll at the point where the greatest diameter of the scroll commences, and are drawn gradually in as the circle of the scroll diminishes. The matter to be pressed is introduced into the case in front of the arms, and is carried around by the arms, and thus reduced in volume, the object being to extract the juice from ground apples in the manufacture of cider." (Patent Number 232,307)
