This press is pretty light for some but I don't do any "real" work anyway. Just for bending brackets maybe sheet metal stuff. It will handle the odd little gear or bearing push too. My days of doing heavy crap are behind me. When I was in the auto trade, used to do lots, fwd bearings, rear axle, pinions and so on. Don't miss it one bit. Have to make some jigs and attachmets for the jobs at hand. More lathe, mill and welding time is good.

I was eyeballing one of those in P.A. last week. My problem is I have the ram, the pump, and most of the steel laying around, it just has to be assembled into something useful...
I do like the foot pedal.

Mine is air over hydraulic, but I need a gauge like yours to see where I am at when pressing big stuff.

The first little press accessory for small bracket bending. 2 1/2 inches wide, bends 1/4 inch strap quite sharp.
