    I run a 20 ton . Has been an invaluable piece of equipment.
    I'd recommend getting one with a ram and pump arrangement as it is much more versatile.
    I find the bottle jack arrangement a bit awkward.
    This is the only clear picture I have of mine , sorry.
    As you can see, I use it quite often....

    I got the hand jack one, the only pneumatics we use is to pump up a tire, and even that is a headache causing process with this old HF electric 'doughnut' compressor so it's always off until we need it.

    Thanks for the tips guys.
    Now to find a place to put the thing ;-}

    Mine is not pneumatic, it is hydraulic. Can be used with manual pump or ( as mine is ) with an electric over hydro pump.

    I have both the HF 12 ton and 20 ton presses. I recommend going for the 20; not just because it is more powerful but also because the frame is welded where the 12 ton is bolted.
    They occasionally have the 20 on sale for around $150, which is less than the list price of the 12 ton.

    As I mentioned I went with the 12T and it doses the job I need just dandy.
    It popes the bearing and shaft in out of the 10G with ease.

    It will be a bit trickier to put in the 120mm shaft and bearings but there are 2 of us.
