LOL that's awesome! Love the Binford badge.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 collecting "THINGS" when money allowed. Best part is he doesn't even know about the press! Haven't told him a thing, just gonna say hey look what I built when it's done! I also have a little trinket I'm gonna put on it as a joke (see pic)! LOL!!
I see someone has proper taste in trucks!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!!
Nice work on the press, I also have a 2015 F150 3.5 beast, 4x4. 49,000 mi. mostly highway. and parts of that highway get to see 110 mph. when I'm in the middle of nowhere.Love it 2015 with the 3.5 Eco-Boost
I never understood the whole giant exhaust tip thing or running a straight through muffler on a little car like that. Lot of extra noise for nothing. Like mosquitos buzzing down the road.I get just under 19 MPG in town and 24ish on trips. It will haul 11.5K. And it's a blast smoking kids with the Fart cans on their Hondas!! LOL!!
"g" for gauge snubber? You think the gauge will need a snubber to keep needle from being hard to read? I'm using an oil filled gauge and it's pretty steady without a snubber. That sure is a pretty blue - paint job makes it look professional That looks like the same START/STOP button used by Coal Iron presses. A very good choice.
