Default Re: Shop Press idea's?

I'd say go with the 20 ton if budget allows, but the one I got shows NO mercy if you don't have your parts set up right or if something slips right before the ram makes contact... So far I've only broke a spindle with it unintentionally, and I use a worn out brake rotor off a 1 ton GMC for my bearing removal jig because it's nice and solid with just the right size hole in the middle and it's broke off 1/2" thick chunks off that rotor before I got used to setting everything up just so... One of my mechanics also cracked a spindle because he didn't know there was a snap ring holding a bearing in and the press will not stall before the parts break...
