I've hot pressed a 10" skillet in my 20 ton press in one go. A bearing race on the bottom with a round chunk of steel on top with some clearance. Finish with the hammer. 

If you could give some more info on what press you have and those dies, that would be awesome!

Simple, I like it! Obviously thats a pretty wide set of dies, what kind of press are you using? I'm thinking I'll need a large throated c frame press, almost the shape of a fly press, in order to fit the discs in

Given a 20 ton fly press can form these pans, I'm curious if one of those 20 ton H frame shop presses would work for this. I have my coal iron press for forging, so I wonder if getting one of these cheap hand cranked presses would work for forming the pan blanks
