New Press Design???

Recommended Posts

Had so much fun building my last press, thought I would have another crack at it.

The pic below is a rough draft! All the details can be worked out as long as I have a solid foundation.

The foundation (frame) is a piece of 1" plate cut to the drawings dimensions 

Shooting for a 16 ton press. 4" bore with a 6" stroke. 5ph motor to drive a 11gpm two stage pump. That will provide " almost"  1" per second on the second stage of the pump, according to Batson.

The press will sit on top a custom built I-beam to strengthen the bottom. (Not in drawing, ran out of paper space).

I know a few of you press guys out there will be able to say ," yes this is possible ", or " No, you have lost your mind"

All input appreciated

Well, I can't say either,  Peppie, but I can say that's a might fine looking piece of equipment you're designing there.  I'm a retired furniture builder and it's reminiscent of the "cloudlifts" in Green&Green style furniture.  I like it.

Wish i could draw like that lol its goin to be nice anything is possible with a square a tape and a 2'level and a welder you could squeeze cars with 1'' plate .All joking aside i like the design and the more compact the better in my opinion.

Increase the size of the lifting eye and mount a  small bell in it.

Chris, I to have built many pieces of high end furniture.  Was leaning toward the Art Deco theme.

ThomasPowers, neat idea.....or make the lifting eye the shape of a bell??

Bubba. TY, I am thinking I need small more compact than my last build.

Been thinking I may need a couple of gussets on the back side. 2 each, one on each side of the opening, running top to bottom. Would help keeping the 1" plate straight over time. Not sure it would be needed at only 16 ton.

I was thinking California mission (I heard the Mission bell).  But it is very Deco too and Deco does so much better for a press than Baroque or Art Nouveau; though Romanesque would work well; probably better than Gothic.

Yup, much more Art Deco or California Mission than Greene & Greene.  Whatever style it's in, I like it.  When you get it finished, I'll give you my delivery address. :lol:

I'm sure he will be willing to drop it off, from 6000' of course.

Structurally I think you'd be better off with early '70s Taco Bell than Mission.
