If the cylinder is at the top, the hoses will not be affected by falling red hot whatever.

There are lots of different ideas for making a Forging Press. There is not a simple design to cover all aspects. Your drawings are not complete. Have you figured out the stretch of all the components. Your material seems to be a little under-size.

The hydraulic cylinder will want to push everything apart. How are you trying to control the pressure and the loading.

Talk to a local Engineer!!

The steel is strong enough but i don't like the way your last drawing ''A'' looks ,to me its the weak link theres goin to be alot of side pressure or twist on 1/4 ''webbing I wouldn't trust it.Talk to an engineer like was said or a hydraulic mechanic they probably no more than an engineer anyway lol...
