  • Hydraulic Press Fabrication Guide!

    This is a complete guide to build your own Hydraulic Press for your shop. As with all of these guides, you can substitute materials for heavier uses. I have not built one of these, but was in the process, and just never finished. This is a more complex tool to fabricate than tthe engine stand, so make sure to read the instructions carefully.

      Same here. By looking at the plans, this is a lot like the ones you see for sale in many tool stores. This is built a bit heavier though. Most don't use the 10 ton jack.

        10 ton is more than I would ever use. I looked at the ones at Harbor Frieght and they look very cheap to me. Almost like they would come about on you.

          Those are very useful. We had one when I was in aftermarket auto parts for pressing axle and wheel bearings, ball joints, carrier bearings, ect.

            Just a thought as heavy duty construction that is you could always bump up the tonage on the jack. If needed.

              The plans don't call for lightweight cheapo steel, so that is a possibility. You could also lower the tonage, and use lighter steel for something a little less sturdy, or for small jobs. With the price of steel right now, it's all a matter of how much you need one. LOL
