OP has a juicer, it's just not the kind that uses 1/2 of the fruit with the rind on.
The juicer that you just described is superior, as it 1. is much faster, and 2, incorporates less of the slightly bitter pith into the making of the juice. I miss the orange and grapefruit trees we had prior to citrus canker. I wore out one of the press-down citrus juicers.

[quote=Sundaydrive00;54593581]Is this the attachment you use?


Yes, this is the juicer that I have. I got it for a Christmas present a few years ago. It works fine once you get the oranges peeled. I haven't considered not peeling the pieces. I may try it. Thanks to all of you that responded. I tried to rep you.

BTW, I made the juice on Saturday and we finished up the juice on Wednesday. It still tasted fine. Fresh squeezed sure spoils you to the stuff in the store.

I just use a sharp knife to peel oranges and it takes 5 seconds:

Slice off the stem end.
Twirl it 180 degrees and slice off the bud end.
Turn it so it's sitting on one of the flat sides created when you sliced off the ends of the rind. Run the knife top to bottom along the orange, turning it as you go, until the whole peel is off.
