New 50 ton hydraulic press


Recommended Posts

I just finished up this hydraulic press with the help of Harold, who did all the welding. It is a 50 ton air-over hydraulic bottle jack. It is going to a jeweler in Seattle who will use it for coining. Harold did an awesome job welding it up. He's a little bit too modest, but I really think he can weld the crack of dawn.

A 50 ton is way too slow, but a 20 ton works really well.He's got one in the works at his shop using one of my frames. he's going to use a 30 ton Enerpac cylinder and we're making some accessories for it now. It ought to be pretty slick, especially for knife makers.

Anyway, here is the video:
