I Forge Iron

Fly Press Size


Recommended Posts

Know this is a difficult one to answer.
What size flypress would suit me for general smithing?:confused:
Mainly work hot mild steel up to 30 mm maximum .
I am thinking 5 to 8 ton would suit but need all the advice I can get as I will have to get it shipped over and want to get it right first time.

I have a 10 ton and love it. The only thing I wish I had thought of was a c frame press instead of the h frame I have. . Can be a lot more versatile. I have learned to use the h frame I have with great results. I agree, it is a lot easier to have one to big than to small. I find when you get a tool you start with small stuff and it gets more and more facinating (spelling) to forge larger and larger pieces. I think my flywheel is 234 lbs. LOVE IT
