Periodically loosen the bottom noodle die or you may not be able to remove it to remove the tobacco plug. I put 4 oz. of HH Syrian in the press and cranked it tightly for several days. I over did it. Fortunately, I used the one die made of grey plastic. If you purchased a noodle press, you'll know which one I mean. I could not get the plastic bottom off. I used a strap wrench and was still unsuccessful. Ultimately, I decided to put the press, without the top portion and crank into the freezer. Once the plastic bottom was frozen, one tap with a hammer and it cracked and I was able to remove it and remove the plug of tobacco. No great loss, because there are four more screw on bottoms for use. But those are stainless steel and removal may not have been possible had I cranked one of those too tightly.
