Default Re: Shop Press idea's?

It sounds like what you need is a set of knock out punches... try the aviation tool places like or dunno how thick the material you need to punch thru is, but maybe a modified knock out punch on that 12 ton press would work... Did you get the air operated hydraulic jack for the press? I think they got a 10 ton or 12 ton air operated jack and they make it much easier to control than using the hand pump... especially when you gotta hold the work in one hand, keep everything lined up, and operate the jack at teh same time... it's a LOT easier squeezing a trigger valve than using the hand pump...
