Twizz, I tried for months to figure out how to not rip the Ptex sidewalls off. Its so much easier to do the a...

looks good guys. I love the roller ideas. Are you planning on using a full hyrdaulic system or a manual jacks? Another small detail I noticed on your drawing that may not be how you plan to build it but the base supports should extend out a few more feet. This style of press will be very top heavy. ...

Wow Twizz! I am impressed. Taking on a challenge like that is very brave. Looks like you nailed it. What software are you going to use? Are you going to install a vacuum hold down?

Thanks Skidesmond and deepskis. Initially, I wanted to build a Langzauner style press but for some reason the hydraulics are super expensive. Even a manual pump is like $400-$500 plus all the cylinders($200+ ea.). I am not sure why you can buy a 20 ton bottle jack for $100 but trying to build a hydr...

thanks Skidesmond and Twizz! How are you going to hold the top beams down when pressing? Surely the jacks aren't enough to hold against the firehose? Good question and I am still up for suggestions if you have any. My thought is to find the rough location where the press will settle down on the mold...

I love welding. I am so excited to just weld stuff! I may never use another bolt again. how about two short pieces of fire hose at the end? maybe loop around like horseshoe.

Thanks Twizz, I took your advice from this forum and bought a Hobart 140 MIG. I added the 75argon/25 CO2 gas as well. I love it and it works so well. Thanks for the advice because I had no idea which welder to buy!

New press design-manual hydraulic

I am in the process of building a new press and wanted to document the progress. My goal was to make a professional grade press with a hydraulic lift. I taught myself how to weld so I could fabricate this beast in my shop. So far so good! http://i876.photobucket.com/albums/ab325/browningboards/newpr...

I use staples all the time. Use 6mm staples and than flip it over and grind off the tips of the staples at the tips/tail. works like a charm. I wish I could find some 2mm staples but I haven't had any luck so far.
