any press drawings available....

Recommended Posts

I've come across a few topics and threads that have a list of required parts for a press build and the odd one where press drawings were at one time posted but since deleted.......

Im not set on any press in particular yet, many designs out there, more less looking for dimensions and measurements of already ones built if available.....

maybe someone has kept there drawings or sketches from their build and wouldnt mind posting......thx

Well, apparently there must not be. Batson's booklet on forge presses has full plans. I started out with the idea of building mine with 4" x 6" rect. tube, but when I went to the scrap yard the only thing suitable was 8" x 8" H-beam. Everything else was either much smaller or much bigger. So I made mine out of that - pictures at the link below.

The forum is great, it is the soft wear issues that cause problems. 

And yes I do read the forum. I also reply to direct, off line, contacts. If you have a specific issue, please contact me directly.
