    My homemade Hydraulic Bench Press

    I have always thought of making a small press, but I put it all for later.
    Until the time came and I made it.
    Twenty-five years I was the owner of a company whose main equipment was the presses (hydraulic and eccentric from 12 to 300 ton) for the processing of stainless steel and the production of stainless steel utensils for home and professional use.
    And I did not had a press for my hobby

    Also I want to Thanks Tuomas for his footings design, that I have use.

    Part2:include: the build of movable support bed



    Part3: include the build of dies/molds and first tests.

    Behind the Scenes
    As we say at my country "Whoever has no mind has legs".
    I forgot to drill the four holes at the bed before welding and unfortunately my hand drill it was away at my home at town.
    My home shop is at my summer place. So I decided to give a try, using the drill press.
    The first two holes it was the easy ones (the left at back and the right at front) but the other two it wasn't so easy.
    The space between the wall and drill press it wasn't adequate and the handles of drill press hitch on at the frame.
    So I decided to replace the three handles with two Allen bolts M8x80mm.
