Homemade hydraulic press. Anyone built one ?

Post by Bearcx » Mon Aug 19, 2013 10:47 pm

Been thinking about making a homemade press for the shed. Has anyone done this? Looking at 30-40 Ton, C frame (Arbor) press.

Stuff on the 'net, is mega expensive, and usually "old factory" stuff. Thought about adapting an Enerpac/Porta power pump and ram. Even looking at Log Splitters.
Thoughts ? ?

Found this Rolls Royce model on the 'net. Hydraulic ram is on rollers, and slides across top rails. ! Brilliant.

Was thinking more like this thing...... would allow for odd shapes and versatile uses.
