Huge bolster plates: any blacksmith type uses for them?


Recommended Posts

I bought a huge OBI punch press, 10 ton capacity:




On that press, there are two solid predrilled "bolster plates" appx. 42x27 inches and 4 inches thick. 


I will keep one for my large hydraulic press that I recently put in service, however, I have another plate since this press has two plates. So, I am thinking, what are the possible blacksmith or home shop type uses for those bolster plates? Weight estimated at 1,400 lbs each.


They do NOT have T-slots, just a row of predrilled tapped holes.
