    I've had a pneumatic bottle jack on my shop press for many years. Once you get used to it you will wonder why you hadn't upgraded years ago.

    Thanks Cap, it is hard to tell how many are following the build. had a friend of mine try to tell me how I should do this or should do that. of course the biggest thing he has ever built was a dog house for his German shepherd with all new materials, but he claims to have watched every u tube vid on construction ever published. I suppose that qualifies him as an expert just like I should be qualified to pilot the Antonov 225 just because I have flown a Cessna 182 He stopped coming over when I told him that I would gladly pay him $25.00 an hour to help hold the purlins on the trusses while I welded them. once he figured out we could be 25 feet off the ground and 8 feet above the scaffolding

    Air is the best.

    I have a surprisingly helpful addition to make, for people who keep their jack handles just in case. If you put one rare earth magnet on each end of the upper crossmember on the press, you can put the handle up there when you're not using it, and it will snap into place and stay there.

    Ive got air too. as well as wire baskets at the top sides to hold smaller press tools out of the way and eazely seen and retrieved for pressing. now to get the wench on it somewhere to raize&lower it...I also have to cut apart the pressing bed and square it up good...might even make it so bigger dia. objects can be pressed
