Very nice! I bought a 12-ton last year and bent it on the first use, disassembling a driveshaft of all things-the spline had seized.

Now, the original press is but a memory as it keeps bending and I keep improving. Really wish I'd gotten a good one the first time around-how many times have we said that?

Looks like a real nice job making that press. I am not quite sure how it will do when actually asked to contain 100 tons though. Looks more like a 20 tonner to me.

thats funny about the u joint breaking the press, well not really.
but i have a HF 20 ton, and was doing a u joint for my bro.
well after a little :smokin: okay a lot of :smokin:
we go out and try to press the little u joint out, well after a few tries, we decide it must be binding or just really stuck.
so we get it in ther one more time, and crank that fucker down.
then we stand back for a second...
you should have seen us all jump back when the press hopped like foot, breaking the welded cap off the cross.
the cap had welded to the cross, scared the shit out of us.
but didnt fawk the press.
