I Forge Iron

Hydraulic press


Recommended Posts

All depends on what you think of as affordable and what you expect to do with it. In my opinion hammers are a bit more versatile, but presses are typically quieter and better suited for making mosaic pattern welds.

As regards affordability, for outright purchase of new, effective, forging grade equipment I think it would be hard to beat either a "tire" style power hammer or 12 ton Coal Iron hydraulic press. In either case you are talking thousands of dollars, not hundreds.
