This is a project to pass those winter "nothing to do" doldrums and to give the "newbies" some practice with layout, fabrication & welding to enhance their experiences. I needed a small press for my shop use for several jobs to do some straightening and have the ability to press(bearings/pins) on occasion. I generally take larger items to work as I have a 20T press there. All the material was scrap from work the boss told me to get rid of....and I did as he requested. The frame is 2 1/2" sq. X 1/4" wall & "C" channel is 3" X 1/4"T. I set it up for an 8ton hyd. jack & configured space to be able to use a 10T if needed. I will list the descriptions for each photo number and there will be 14 photos. This will be 3 posts, so please allow me to post all 3 groups before responding.... Thanks....Denny
