There is a hydraulic press like that in my DIY car repair shop. I've used it to replace wheel bearings on my car. Nice to develop the skill to operate this. What is your intended use for this?
goto considered awesome!

The excuse  ::)  is for pressing bushes in engine mounts for SWMBO's car.  (Yeah, I know I can get someone to do it for a few bucks - but that doesn't give me a toy to play with.)

Now to look at sleeves and such to make it work properly....   or I could look at a small metal lathe to turn my own.   ;D

Not sure if you meant this to be a ramble #Brumby but I am crashing anyway  :-DD I 'need' a press too and a ..... and ...... :palm:

I have had a burnisher on my evilbay watch list for to long so I pulled the trigger  >:D Its not for stripping scale or heavy rust plenty of Silicon Carbide/Diamond or flap wheels options for that but as a finishing device looks good. Pickled and oiled plate with a touch of flash rust and splooge from the water jet cutter and 2-3 minutes.

Since you both are Australians maybe Brumby would allow for you to lend his new hydraulic press. Unless it is still a huge distance to get there as Australia is a big country.

Buying my own Press would cost less than the fuel to drop around to @Brumbies place and use his  :-DD

Yes....  The drive would be getting up near 600 miles each way.


Besides, I don't have it yet ... it had to be shipped in from another store.  I'm expecting a call tomorrow.

Much as I hate Afterpay or 'free' lines of Store Credit for what they do to those least able to afford the repayments  :palm: I got a 25% off deal for a Metal cutting Bandsaw and have paid the amount in full so all they get is my spam email address for giving me $100 discount. It is not the Battery Makita one I was looking but the overall saving of $200 can be put to other toys instead, now what else to buy for ME for Christmas. eBay auction: #133811688372

Mmm well for savings I am still in front by two 6 packs of Beer I guess >:D Added this bender I have had on the wish list and now I have a cutting device seemed to make sense to have this too.
