Default New press

Just picked up a neat little 12 ton press from Princess auto here. Ram type with a side pump and foot lever so I can crush both hands. Have a smaller hyd jack type but didn't like it, seems like a good upgrade for my needs.

Read the FAQ first.
I already mopped the embedded photos out of your post in the messy shop thread.

Sorry for the picture mess. So used to doing the bucket method. Pics of the new press. The foot pedal would be another tripping hazard so will only be installed as needed.

I see you have a well equipped shop. You need room to expand, though.
The press will be a good addition, and soon you will want more power.

That's a nice press, I'll be interested in how it performs for you.

As Gerry said nice shop, I see you work with wood also, I see the miter saw dust collector.
