One thing you could try is squeezing through a cloth. Cut up the quinces (you'll need a substantial knife), grind up the pieces, and then roll the mash up in a sturdy teatowel and twist HARD. 

I usually make the juice fopr quince jelly with a steel screw press (you probably don't want to pay over 100 dollars for just one go, though). And even then. I usually boil the quinces beforehand. I've never handled tougher fruit than quinces, though I suppose they must exist.
