    Default new member, couple of projects.

    g'day all,
    havee been a reader on this site for quite a while, but have only just signed up. bit of background, im 20 years old, living in sunny queensland, australia, working as a boilermaker. mainly do chassis for transportable buildings/houses. but occasionally get to make some creations of my own.
    first one is a press i made yesterday, and a little brake i made today, both not completely finished in the photos, lacking some springs and other bits and pieces.
    bender successfully bends 75x8 plate (3inchx5/16) and 25x12 (1 x 1/2)
    half inch rod etc. with 10tonne jack.
    also attatched is a couple of photos of the auger stand for our 3tonne excavator.

    Nice job bud. Now tommorow I wants you to put some guard on both side of this press, for those days when you need it.

    I've been considering a shop press, but haven't seen any with guards. Would you explain how guards are employed on a press like this? Thanks!

    Same here. I've never seen a shop press with guards. Like to see some pics of some though.

    Cam - Good work. Looks like both will do their intended jobs very well.
