I built the old press in a have to situation, a Sunday afternoon and nobody home that had a press. Here is what
I got by with. It got me by, but it just wasn't practical so pic #2 is what I modified it into. The uprights and top are
3 1/2"x3/8 angle welded solid to form a tube. The upper corners
are boxed with 3/8" to offer just a little more beef. All the 3/8th was welded with 7018 even tho the 211 was
sitting right there. I need all the stick practice I can get and since I was in no rush, it made good practice.
The bed is 1/4" x 2" square tube welded with .030 mig. So far I only have a 12 ton jack, everything I had let the
bed deflect about 1/16". I think I will truss the bed and go to a 20 ton sometime in the future.
Then the wife came in right in the middle of paint and says. Dear could you make me a giant upside
The giant tack is pic 3 and 4 .
Actually it is for her desk to stick papers onto. This was my first flirt with O/A since 1987.
I have forgotten alot since 87.
