Default 20 Ton shop press

I have a Harbor Freight shop press that I've realized I don't use often enough to eat up space. I bought it to change the bushings out in my 80 arms, and that's all it's ever done in three years. 20 Ton unit. About as brand new as you can get.
$150?

Like you never used it to crush random objects! Sure.

That would be more fun than what its been used for to date. I should put my old hard drive in there and smasharoo.

Nice sideways pic. Oh, I also have an air over hydraulic bottle jack that I bought to put in this, but never did. Can work a deal on both.

A plug for having a press - I have straightened FJ40 and 62 bumpers in mine, and found it useful for a host of projects that I never knew I could use it for. The only thing I've never done is press out a bearing, which is ostensibly why everyone gets a press. It'll mash a beer can flatter than you can imagine, too.

I have the exact same press - in fact it was Christo's first shop press! He has since moved on to much bigger and much, much better but for most of us shadetree mechanics, it does the trick. Doesn't take up much shop space at all and for the price it can sure make an otherwise tricky job simply a piece of cake. For the price it's an invaluable tool. As SteveH says it can be much more useful than you ever imagined and sometimes it's the only tool that will get the job done safely.
Tell us more about the extra jack that you have.

I spoke too soon on the air jack. I just remembered I need that for modifying the framing in my basement. I can post that up for sale after the project wraps. It is NOT a direct fit into the press anyway. It's longer IIRC, which is why it never got installed.

On the press, I always intended to make/buy a folding brake for bending up brackets. I bought it to change bushings, but justified it based on all the crazy fab stuff I used to do. This was what I was going to duplicate http://www.northerntool.com/shop/too...ct_21896_21896
I'm sure I'll find an immediate use for it the day after I sell it. lol

I too have this press. For whoever buys it, I HIGHLY recommend buying new press plates, or sourcing some steel from the scrap areas at a steel yard. Those cast plates will explode, and my buddy is lucky to have all of him intact when mine exploded during a d44 diff build. VERY scary.

There are numerous reports of the same thing happening over on Pirate.

I have the bomber ones from SWAG and they are very nice.
