This turntable-shaped device allows you to press vinyl at home

The Phonocut can press 10-inch vinyl anywhere

There is now a home vinyl-pressing device for wax enthusiasts.

Named the Phonocut Home Vinyl Recorder, the device is an analog lathe and can press 10 to 15 minutes of music per side from a headphone input, with the instructions reading simply "place vinyl blank on the platter, connect to the music input of your choice, press the start button". 

The Phonocut presses 10-inch vinyl, and costs €999. Read more about the mini-device here.
