    20 Ton Press Upgrades Compilation

    Hi Guys,
    I've decided to do a Compilation Video of my 11 Part Series on Upgrades to my Cheap 20 Top Press.
    For those who don't want to sit through 11 episodes to see if there's anything they might be interested in, this should do the trick.
    Its the first compilation video I have done, so any comments positive or negative to help me improve for next one are very welcomed.
    Cheers.

    Nice, orderly build. Also judging the twin cable done correctly, believe or not that's not commonly understood.
    Just one suggestion. Whatever spacing of holes on the uprights for securing the table, drill the cross-beams in some lesser distance between centers. Example, if uprights are 5", then space holes in beam 2, or 3" apart. This allows selecting closest position to ram and lessens extension of same; as most work pieces aren't in convenient height increments.
    Sincerely,
