I thought there was a little water wheel in the wall generating electricity, waste water out the ground pin....I musta over engineered the idea.

Exclamation stength of 1"plate/100ton press

staybusy,I don't think anyone on this board is trying to beat you up for your intent on building a press,but they are just trying to make you aware of the risks involved. Build it, keep the hydraulic pressure relief valve setting low initially and then increase it to do the work you want to do..You did make the comment about your design- "then share it so you guys can critique it"...so build it then give us the play by play of how you test it and bring the pressure up to do work..if you do have a failure,shoot some photos of it and maybe we can help you improve it..just like freight trains,hydraulics don't play..keep in mind what you are working with..stay safe

I'll upload some pics soon (1-2 weeks). Project is a bit delayed but I'm still slowly making progress.

Have you checked his profile? not an engineer, new to metalwork, and is a Safety Nazi.
And a Onterrible asshole from the east. I'm thinking it's time to block him. No redeeming social value.

No no Gerry, once again ol' Dougie is confused or in an altered state. Pretty sure the OP is the self proclaimed "degreed engineer".

As a matter of fact I have designed, built, and had built a handful of presses although admittedly that is not my main gig. Also, I'll state it again here so you don't get confused between this post and the one above it. I am not, nor have I ever claimed to be a "degreed engineer". I do work with engineers on a daily basis, and do develop structural steel frames using the same information available to engineers, but if a stamp is required I need to hire that out. None of that really matters though, the fact is you are confusing one of the OP's posts from a different thread with me for some reason.

1,442 postings and not a single one helping the O.P.? So you have taken the time to look through all of those posts and confirmed that I have never once helped a member? Not likely. I don't have in excess of 12,000 posts like yourself, but 2/3 of mine aren't useless drunken drivel either.

I really hate seeing anyone suffer. Get yourself some help: https://pennsylvaniarecoverycenter.org/
