I need to make an Interlocking brick Making Machine using a 20 ton Shop Press that will apply pressure from Below.
First, I need to change the working mechanism of the Press to be driven by any other energy that wont be ME (THAT UP AND DOWN MOVEMENT TO MAKE THE PRESS GO UP).
Let us start from there. Clue- Lets try use a small Single Phase (220V) Electric Motor. How do I change the piston action to AVOID me doing the work so that it works like an electric driven Hydraulic pump?
Diagrams are welcome.
