I Forge Iron



Recommended Posts

Anyone use a Hypercyl press to forge with?  Just picked up one at auction.  Uses air to move the cylinder until contact with work piece and then hydraulics kicks in with a maximum power stroke of 1/2"  after contact.  Very fast but only 15,000 lb max pressure.


 Would this be enough pressure for setting damascus?  maybe a better question would be how many tons per square inch of work surface is required for damascus and general forging?
