    What's going on in your shop?

    Max pressure for the pump is 3500PSI all other components are rated for that or higher. I wouldn't trust the frame much past the rating ot the Hydraulic system now so maybe 13T. It you wanted heavier I would use the 3x3x3/8" angle iron and would bump the cross pieces with a solid 1" plate on the...

    What's going on in your shop?

    I tried to post a video but it said it was to large of a file. The pressure is set right now at 2000LBS I can turn it up if I want but was going to wait and see how it works. I do have a gauge on it to track the pressure to turn it up or down if I have to.

    That stuff seems super tuff like Ironwood but not as oily/gummy? Worse case you could always make some BBQ if it didn't work! LOL!

    Fixed the hoses last night, going to steel place today to get some round bar for Drawing dies and hopefully a small chunk of 1" plate for some larger radius dies.

    I think so? Like I said asked the guy for Chevy engine Blue because I had a can of it and sprayed it that color to start. Well thats what he gave me and assured me that's what it was! LOL!! I actually like it better! The motor frame is definitely Chevy engine Blue though!

    Yeah I ordered one from Zoro it was 15 bucks shipped so I said why not! Project was fun but at sometimes stressful! Not really knowing what I was doing, learning from books and web. Finally got that friend of mine to give me some pointers. I will say though I was pretty much spot on with design...

    I'm putting snubber on as a suggestion from a friend who is a Hydraulics pro. More to prevent the gauge from dying then it is to read. That's what he told me anyway LOL!! I found the Stop Start on Ebay, only 16 bucks and rated for 30A 250VAC.

    Ok winding down on this, FINALLY!! Waiting for a gauge snubber. That will be the last piece for the Hydraulics. Pending any leaks we should be squishing steel very soon? Still need to weld the top flatter die. Wanted to tack block onto mounting plate with some pressure on it to make sure dies...

    Almost there! Hydraulics mostly plumbed just have to hook up control to Hydraulic cylinder on frame after I finish paint it. Need to put the gauge on it too almost forgot that! That would not have been good!!

    This whole project started as a want definitely not a need. Another thing that contributed to it was a friend that bought a Coal Iron 12T press. He busted my chops about how he got his first! Well when your unemployed because of Covid a press is an expense you don't need! Anyway I started...
