Hydraulic press build question


Recommended Posts

Question is bottom die height. My leaf spring power hammer is about 31 inches for the bottom die, anvil is about an inch lower the way it came and that's comfortable. My thought is about 35 inches, the work bench I stand at is just under 37 inches. 

Thanks

mines bout chest high its more work to bring the billet up to it but i tend to lean in to watch things happen so i have to bend less at that hight

 

i also put my little giant on a 6x6 base to bring the anvil up to me more

I have my set up pretty much the same as this,  for both my press and LG hammer. The bottom die on my press sits roughly 48-50 inches off the floor.

My bottom die is the one that moves, but my top die is about chest height.  If anything, it is a bit lower than I like, but not difficult to use.
