Suitable press for forging?

Recommended Posts

Hi Y'all,

Found this hydraulic press on "Gumtree" and I was curious if it could be used or adapted for forging?

The description given by the seller:  Good condition. Heavy duty. 300mm opening. Good value.

Was going for 40000 then 30000 and now it's 20000, price in South African Rand.

Thanks in advance.

ianinsa, Thank you for the offer but unfortunately, I'm moving down to the western cape (Overberg area) later this week. Although I would greatly appreciate it if you could maybe send the presses and power packs specs?

Thanks and regards,
