  1. *update* I asked Ken H what size fittings he used because the hosing says 1/2" but the fittings measured closer to 3/4". Unfortunately I did not get a response. Reached out to Coal Iron. They said the 12 Ton's cylinder uses 1/2" NPT fittings. So I bought a 1/2" running tee and 1/2" to 1/4" adapter from Grainger. Then bought a Winters 5,000 PSI gauge. from Amazon. Success. $40 is small price to pay to know you're getting what you paid for. Parts list for anyone else looking to add a PSI gauge to their Coal Iron Works 12 Ton: Eaton 1/2" NPT running tee - 4VPV9 (Grainger)
  2. With all the information on here I wanted to crunch some numbers for my Coal 12 ton. I couldn't find info for the motor on their website. They paint over the badges. 2HP motor with 4" cylinder is what their 16 ton is. Am I reading that correctly, if you rewire it from 115 to 230 it goes from 1430RPM to 1720RPM?
  3. Did you use the previous cylinder before the swap? If so did you notice any improvement in metal moving? Got my Coal 12 about a month and a half ago and it moves steel but not very well. Wanting to add a PSI gauge but don't know the t fitting size I would need.
  4. I have the Coal 12ton. Am doing the Wen 4" x 8" (CC4008) cylinder upgrade. Would like to add a PSI gauge as you did, but I'm not sure what t-fitting size I would need. Will you post a link to parts or DM them, please? Just want to verify I'm getting what I paid for - 12 tons. Thank you.
