The 20 ton press could also benefit from the shims that Shane added in this photo.

Don, yes it could. I’ve bent the 20 ton a couple times and had to straighten it out.

I would go 20T also. I have had one 10 years or so and no problems. Some of the 12's are bolted together and some welded as you probably know. With the 20% coupon as mentioned they can be had for a very nice price.

I have purchased the 20 ton and have put it together...The play in the press beam is a problem. Still thinking about options to reduce it.

I purchased the stand up full size 12ton hf press to press the bearings from the dirtbike engine cases. Works great.

In most of the shops I’ve worked in I’ve see presses leak it seems to be the norm. I rebuilt a 50 ton fake press twice and the darn thing still leaked. It was seapage not pressure.
I'm technically misunderstood at times i guess its been this way my whole life so why should it change now.
