Did this video help you?

Micscience: Nice build. I myself would rather prefer something other than bolt threads for holding all that force but I'm sure it does the trick specially if it is just being used for smaller projects which I assume. Good luck.

iknowsstuff: da power of da squishy!!!!!

Bob Jimenez: great idea! Perfect for pressing out a bearing and small enough to not take any room in the garage.

dyip32: ALMOST what I need... just need to figure out how to cut the C-channels into such pieces (assuming they don't come pre-cut in those sizes and how to drill holes in them? I unfortunately do not have an acetylene torch or anything like that :( 

Ricky Ricardo: ya know you can do the same thing with a hammer to flatten that little piece of crap pipe don't ya??

Carlos Delao: Parts used? Can we have a list?

Jaime Lousa: lina ideia

hushamism: I cant believe it

C-Veed: If I buy this material from you excluding jack, how much would you charge? I like the idea Thanks.

big block ford: I'm going to build one of my own. This is a great idea. Need a little press to get the wrist pins out of my pistons. Only drag is I have a two ton bottle jack. Just it's broken haha.

Muhammad David: lol

Shuss3539: can you tell us the parts that you used to make this? Thanks

renard381: cool :-)

Flofy387: Really nice :D

str8dropitdoe: Sell me one dude.

Gkir1: Nice...... u cud bolt the jack upside down too and weld a extension onto it that way you could use sockets on the jack for different sizes bearings

MROWKAOLKUSZ: Geniusz lol

Trent7224: Threads are extremely strong on a vertical load like that. However you should use B7 all thread for that. It is equivalent to like a grade 8 bolt. Regular all thread is a very poor grade of steel.

69patom: mmm.mmm.mmm

carlos zago: Watch This DeşifreBeatz - Safēda (2014)

Luis Fernando: You need more durable materials and a way better design, I bet these threads will be gone really soon if the shank wont bend first.

ditchbankkid: Is there anyway you can send me the specs for that press? I do a lot of automotive hobby work on my own vehicles and a press is called for on a most of the tasks. Or would you be kind enough post your specs?

HalfLife2Beta: whats the main component the bottle looking one?

skweekah: Beautiful. I love it. So simple yet so effective!

lee isenberg: I made one similar to yours, but your press is more compact. I like the slim design of yours, good job. Take care, from Tennessee.

auck2002: Thanks! I will go check out my local metal shops.

mopatin: Imagine a weight lifter that has up 100 Kg weights. Each hand and each foot stands 50 Kg. You cant divide the 100 Kg by 4 (25 kg each hand and foot). The same happens with the nuts. With the jack I dont create 10 tons of force, but 5 tons for the top nuts and -5 tons (the reaction) for the bottom nuts.

goodcountryaustralia: Great idea. Nice work

mopatin: The threaded bars can be found at industrial supplies stores. The U profiles at a metal shop. They have to cut them and ask them to make the holes. Since a complete U profile measures (in Spain) 6 meters perhaps you have to ask for remnants at the metal shop.

mopatin: The U beam are the kind U beam of 100 mm wide. The length, around 300 mm. The threaded bars are 25 mm diameter. The maximum height inside is around 500 mm.

Kevin Weimer: If you take another piece of channel like you have on top, weld or bolt a bung in the center of it. add an eyebolt on each side of it, and add an eye bolt at each side on the bottom piece, then the jack will come back down by itself. The third channel would float between the jack and top channel. Nice job though for a quickly made press!!!

JOSE ELIAS FLOREZ MUÑOZ: sencilla pero muy eficiente gracias que dios lo bendiga

THE5COALITION: Where did you get the u beam metals?

RIZARI MARCENARIA: ?????????qual o sentido disto uma marretada ja resolvia

cherryblue3: I want to do this for a project at work, could you tell me what materials you used to make this press? My knowledge on this kind of thing is pretty limited. If you want you can message me. Thanks!

Nanz Aalund: Thank you for adding a safety statement. This is an inexpensive way to make a small hydraulic press - I just don't want to see anyone getting hurt by it or you getting sued for not posting the dangers.

Mrboostin01: great vid, well done.

Nanz Aalund: This is bad advise because the jack is not bolted down to the frame nor set into a registration holder and the "press" is not bolted down to the work surface. This could spit out whatever you put in it and the jack could come out as well hurting the user and anyone else who happened to be standing by.

loki3050: Anyone have a good source for the steel U channel? I tried my local Home Depot and couldn't find any big enough, Unless I didn't look in the right dept. I'm in the NW Chicago Burbs if that helps.

diyengineer: Gotta do what you gotta do :)

Paulo Amaral: É verdade. Aparafusando a base em uma superfície de madeira mais larga, ficará mais segura de operar. Parabéns.

Jiajun Wang: things might fly off and hit you during the pressing...better put some protection there

ProMonkeyZ1: Check your local steel Scrap Yard, u'll be amazed what you can find.

walkertongdee: I can hear him breathin but don't hear any talkin...

Frogking9: it looks so much smaller on the thumbnail haha

mopatin: Yes!, it is a forced perspective effect (non intentional). Since the hand is closer, it seems that the press is "pocket size".

putative3: Two 8 inch thick steel flanges, 6 feet in diameter, with two rings of 3 1/4 inch diameter holes around the periphery, 20 in total. 20 50 ton hydraulic jacks/cylinders linked to a manifold. Made for testing oilfield components. A test piece was sandwiched between the flanges, 3 inch diameter studs made from EN 16 T were passed through the flanges and the jacks. Hey Presto 2000 tons!

putative3: takes me back a bit, I once built a 2000 ton press using 8 inch thick steel plates along similar lines.

Sammy Spaniel: Simple and adjustable. Now this is what I was looking for. Thanks.

T Abbs: waste of time - stupid video
MasseyFilms: Is this a DOT approved helmet that you built on or did you make this from scratch? I live in CA and want one but it has to be DOT approved. Great job BTW!
Firechaor chaotic: Volta a fazer videos!
PurposelyLiving: Awesome toy!! My son and I both got one for Christmas. We both need to do some training to get more accurate. I know different armor colors are coming soon but I would also like to see different color discs so you know who shot you. These things are so cool.
shelbysharp13: all amazing. they seem very well built and useful.
James Healey: We have had a great deal of success with this high precision lathe and very easy to programme with the Fanuc mate. This lathe will achieve tolerances in excess of +/- 2 microns. An ideal machine for toolroom / prototype / and low production departments. Contact the uk supplier for details.
max callaway: Thanks for posting. I did not know about shifting oiur weight or using eye contact. This was very helpful.
