Default Shop press build

I’ve been wanting to buy or build a hydraulic shop press for years. I recently came across some free 5” channel iron from a machine skid that was being scrapped at work. It was the perfect size for a 20 ton press. I also got some free 2” angle iron for the base. I added a winch for raising and lowering the bed. Instead of the usual bottle jack like most shop presses use, I went with a 20 ton x 4” stroke cylinder and an air-over-oil 10,000psi pump. The cylinder is mounted on a trolley for the rare occasions when a part can’t be centered in the press. The ram has a reversible tool that’s 2” on one end and 1” on the other. I also made several ram tools with dowel pins: 5/16”, 3/8”, 1/2”, 5/8”, & 3/4”. The one side was intentionally left hanging out because I plan to build a manual arbor press there. And of course it’s painted IH red.

Very nice build and a very handy tool! Its amazing the iron work that becomes possible when you have a capable press and some tooling.

Sure saves a lot of work and damaged parts from the BFH episodes.

Great job on the press. I particularly like the hydraulic cylinder and the wheels for mobility. Great idea!

And, of course, it's made in the

Thanks guys!

I plan to build a finger brake for the press similar to this.

You need a storage rack on the other side to counter the weight of the arbor press!! Seriously, a storage rack for all the plates and push blocks would be handy, amazing what tends to accumulate with these, and I still have to turn something down quite often.

Great job as always Adam. Where did you get the cylinder & pump at? I have one of those cheap China made jobbies that was given to me but I like yours much better.

John,
I added the shelf on the left side to hold tooling as well as the pump when it’s not being used. I have a 50 cal ammo box there now for the smaller tooling. I’m waiting on a guy to burn out a couple of arbor plates. I plan to add a jack or a fifth caster under the tooling shelf for support when using the arbor press.

Oak,
I found the cylinder and pump on Amazon. Also had to buy an 8 ft hose since the pump comes with only a 5 ft hose. The pump is a Temco brand. It has a 5yr warranty for just a little more $ than the generic no-name pumps. Their 20T x 4” cyl was out of stock so the one I got is a Hydrafore brand I believe. I had to change the fitting on the cylinder because it wasn’t the same size as the one on the hose. Luckily the pump came with the fitting I needed.

Thanks for sharing your idea's.


I have a Press,
I got as a Birthday Present years ago.
It has served me well.
Other-wise saying,
I have made due with it.
I have always made a list of improvements,
That I would like to do as I have seen video's or post in forums.

I will add the Ammo box to my list.

Thanks to You IHinIN

Finger Brake is on my list also.
One similar to S W A G.
You have (Nailed It) in one package.


I like the Arbor press addition.

Here is one of the idea's I will share that I will do to mine.

This is for the stability for the Arbor Press.

I know this is for a Bridgeport mill but the concept will
work for this, and raise the casters off the floor.

Hope this helps

Cub Cadet is a premium line of outdoor power equipment, established in 1961 as part of International Harvester. During the 1960s, IH initiated an entirely new line of lawn and garden equipment aimed at the owners rural homes with large yards and private gardens. There were a wide variety of Cub Cadet branded and after-market attachments available; including mowers, blades, snow blowers, front loaders, plows, carts, etc. Cub Cadet advertising at that time harped on their thorough testing by "boys - acknowledged by many as the world's worst destructive force!". Cub Cadets became known for their dependability and rugged construction.

MTD Products, Inc. of Cleveland, Ohio purchased the Cub Cadet brand from International Harvester in 1981. Cub Cadet was held as a wholly owned subsidiary for many years following this acquisition, which allowed them to operate independently. Recently, MTD has taken a more aggressive role and integrated Cub Cadet into its other lines of power equipment.
