Food Manufacturing equipment - need a device for a specific purpose.

I run a small business where I make a couple products for cocktail bars. It is slowly growing, and I do all the production myself, so I am looking for ways to improve my process without having to use a copacker. One of the things I make is orgeat, and right now I hand-squeeze the almonds, but I would like to use some kind of a press, as hand-squeezing 9 pounds of almonds for an hour and a half is a good workout, but not so fun. The best solution I have come across so far is a manual citrus press, but it is shaped for fruit. I need something with more of a screen-bottomed basin. Any suggestions welcome, doesn't have to be a machine necessarily for food manufacturing.
