    Nice little Press Brake Tuomas! Great addition to your shop! Did you put bushings in the upper post housing?

    Thanks buddy. Nope. Jack and the post / blade are are at the same line, so blade stays straight enough without pushings.
    Housings are made from pre-machined tube here its called " ainesputki" its sold in hardware stores. I found suitable axles from the eye bolt. So i got good enough fitting without lathe.
    Cost for the material was about 25$.

    I like this! Good work!

    I don't have any of this equipment on hand but I have an upcoming project in mind that would need a similar setup; however, I have been researching how to invert one of the air-over-hydraulic style jacks (maybe even one of those so-called "long jacks") to be setup like yours and would be powered by an air compressor - so I can get quicker cycling times.

    I've seen stuff on the internet that come painfully close but none like yours and especially none inverted that also has air-over-hydraulic functionality. Any ideas or pointers that would not involve a complete re-make of the jack? (Note to Admins: Apologies if this is not the correct place to ask this, please advise if not.)

    Regards

    Supposed to make a video from this long time ago.
    But i lost most of the clips about the making.
    So, i decided to make little different video this time.



    Subtitles are English ( kind of language that i tend to use )
