FYI Luc the edible avocado oil is pressed from the flesh of avocado fruits, not from the pits. The pits are not edible.

The seed yields a milky fluid with the odor and taste of almond. Because of its tannin content, it turns red on exposure, providing an indelible red-brown or blackish ink which was used to write many documents in the days of the Spanish Conquest. These are now preserved in the archives of Popayan. The ink has also been used to mark cotton and linen textiles.

If avocado pit produced edible oil then the pit would also be edible. Have you ever eaten an avocado pit?  ;)
I've never made seed oil, but i think hard seeds are soaked in water to soften them and then pressed in a hydraulic press to remove the oil. I do something similar to produce almond milk, just mix water after pressing.
