Can anyone post a photo or confirm how the bottom piece connects/secures to the barrel? ...I have an old one which uses an indent in the barrel for the bottom screw to catch on to and overtime (20+ years) due to the friction this indent shaves down to where the bottom piece doesn't stays on the barrel once you start pumping out the dough. Would love to buy another quality cookie press as the Wilton Preferred Cookie Press are really cheaply made compared to a 20yr old Marcato one.

Does anyone know if all parts of this tool are made of stainless steel, and not aluminum?

Manuf description online: Made from anodized aluminum, steel, and ABS. If I had to guess based on mine from 20yr ago version, the handle and mechanism (pole) is steel, the barrel and the top and bottom cover, including the cookie dies are aluminum, and the black plastic at the top is the abs plastic.
I'm going to buy two of these things--and then have a fancy set of custom holsters made to fit 'em. Then I'm going track down the varmint who decided to call what is obviously a cookie maker, a biscuit maker--and when I do, I'm going to fill him full of dough!!!

Got one last drop. It functions pretty much as one would expect. I made some dough with the "default" recipe, and the biscuits were... Edible. I don't know whether they came our average because of the recipe or because I used aluminum foil instead of applying directly on the tray, but I'd recommend trying your own tried-and-tested formula to benchmark this thing. Edit: Just watched this. Turns out my mistake was I melted the butter. Certainly explains why the dough looked like crap. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Vpc5pF1dfmY
(Edited)
I'd like a black-colored one the next time there's a drop. It would match my pasta-maker (that I bought here)
Would this only work on plain tea biscuit doughs or would you be able to put in dough for gingerbread or dough with chocolate chips or fruit added?

While I certainly don't claim to be an expert, my mother make a few dozen types of cookies (biscuits) with devices similar in design. Most use the same recipe, but may use different coloring and/or flavoring. I'm sure many more recipes can be used, but as far as chips, or chunks of anything else, depending on what design disk you're using there is a good chance of it clogging, or just straining the bits out. Usually my mother will make the cookies, and decorate or add stuff after. She makes wonderful little candy bar cookies by making a line of dough with the 'zigzaggy line' disc, places an assortment of Hershey's miniature candy bars on it, and cranks out another line on top. She then cuts them apart and seals each using a fork dumpling style. I'm sure you could do the same with fruit, and other whatnots. Also, some recipes don't hold the shape as well. The chocolate chip cookies I make would never hold most of the shapes even if I could get them through the gun.
Where has this been all my life?!
