Thanks Ken. :O)
Hey capainleeward, why'd you use aluminum plate instead of steel? Because it was what was at hand?
Yes, but the aluminum is not part of the pressure train. it has a hole drilled thru it to the bottom of the jack. :O)
Nice press. I'm a fan of bottle jack setups. What size of angle iron did you use for the frame?
Thanks for the clarification capainleeward. I missed that.
This shop press is not a heavy duty one just for inserting bearings ect. 1 1/2 angle iron.
I see. For light duty uses only. Thanks capainleeward.
