if im thinking about the same thing as you ..... you wont get the 'return of energy' that you get from a fly press, its essentially a vertical rack and pinion, ive got one gathering dust somewhere, and thats all it does (except broaching the occasional keyway)

On a flypress you can 'bump' which allows you to draw-out / strike multiple blows without to much (excessive) input on the handle, they give you a little bit of your input back for 'free' on the ram return 'up' stroke.
