Default Scored me a Nugier press

I scored a Nugier H25-7 air over hydraulic 25 ton press for $150. This is one heavy duty sucker. It almost killed me to unload this beast by myself. I shouldn't need much to get it pumping. The air part moves the ram but the hand pump doesn't build pressure. It seems as though it needs a cup in the pump or something. Anybody out there have one of these? An owners manual and a parts list would be great. Time for some cleanup and paint.

That's about the same size as mine, But I only have a hand pump setup on mine, So I'm not much help really am I.
But for $150 you did well as mine was around the $600 mark.

Rotty, you really just gotta paint that gauge before you put one of these guys eyes out!

Default almost there...

Well I got the pump rebuilt and mounted but the ram wasn't holding pressure. So I took the ram apart and the main seal had turned to dust. I guess it is to be expected on something that is at least 35 years old. New seal kit is on the way and it should be good for another 35 years. Ill take some pictures when I get done.

Well I finally got it done. As usual with my projects it went a little over budget. I paid Nugier to rebuild the pump because somebody was inside it before I got it and they don't have any diagrams for this style of pump. With no way to know if I was putting it together right I thought this was the way to go. I rebuilt the ram and it holds pressure. Its not a true air over hydraulic its a hydraulic with an air blow down valve. It works great, blows down to the work then you pump to build pressure. Here are some pics.

I would say your rebuild costs are well worth it. It looks great! Now that the press belongs to someone that cares about it, it should last forever.
