I started mine and I realized my jack is a 30 tonne and has a little bigger bottom on it but I can still make it work I think I have 8 ft of 1"x2" I can add to the side of my base to give me the extra area.
Great inspiration in here keep it up
I have a pic but I can't seem to post it.....Got it LOL
This is great I already have the jack so building the rest of this SHOULD be fairly straight forward
I have a cheap 115 volt MIG welder that I hope will work I do have a 220V Lincoln stick but my shop is not wired for it yet.
Now I just need to start scrounging for steel, or just bite the bullet and buy it.
My Mini Hydraulic Press
in Tools and Tool Making
Thing move slow in my world, I got a different plan set up and some bigger tubing.
I got a new welding helmet and I can now see what I am doing and I also picked up a stick/DC TIG welder and I have been using the stick for everything now and love using it.
Here is the progress on my press I just need to weld the anvil base on top and bottom and tidy up the rest of the welds and hook up a something to release the air. Then build some dies but steel is getting hard to get here :(
