Ours is made from old truck frame. A 20 ton hydraulic jack is the power.

Any homemade presses out there?

I built a smaller one way back in high school because I thought I really needed one in the farm shop. I remember I used it once or twice but otherwise it collected dust. Left it there when I moved out.


Most peoples' lives pass them by while they're making grand plans for it.

I used a 20 pound sledgehammer and plenty of cuss words.


Seriously, always wanted one, and tried to fashion one time, but it didn't work out like I wanted it to. I guess I just never needed one that often to get serious about it.
