has anyone built their own hydraulic press? I'm looking to build one in the 12 to 20 ton range. thanks
Be more specific....what kind of press are you talking about.........I built mine
but I'm not sure it's what you want. It's elec/hydraulic............

I think HF has a 20 ton press for about $200.00. The 12 Ton HF is on sale for $79.00 online at this moment. I would say download the product manual and try working from there. You may figure out how to build a better one.
