  1. Finally got my hydraulic press finished tonight. Can't wait to use it.
  2. Ted, I am using James Batsons book "Build your own hydraulic forging press"
  3. Got my press welded up, now to make dies and wait for pump and control valve
  4. Thanks Ted, middle plates are 1" and angle is 3/8×3×5
  5. Ok will try to locate # when I get home and no videos. Got it, Thanks gentlemen.
  6. Thanks for the info ThomasPowers, the ring is not a dull thud but I will post a short video later with ballbearing and ring test. Thanks again for the info from everyone.
  7. Ball bearing test was great,not sure what the ring should be on something that size, base seems to be cast iron but I am not positive. Face looks like it has been recently resurfaced what should the ring sound like? Thanks in advance.
  8. Thanks to everyone for their responses.
  9. Curious if anyone has heard of a Hercules 400 Anvil? If so what are ya'lls thoughts on the subject. Thanks for any info.
  10. Nice work, now I know what to do with the anchor I've got, thank for an idea.
  11. Thanks for the information, i will most likely add another inch of insulation for now. That should take care of any issues with the cubic inch formula, correct?
  12. Howdy folks quick question, would 2 3/4" burners be enough for 795 cubic inches, or should i use 1" burners? My forge will be 18" long × 7 1/2" ID. Thanks in advance for any knowledge
