Bob Jimenez: great idea! Perfect for pressing out a bearing and small enough to not take
any room in the garage.
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.
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??
hushamism: I cant believe it
Carlos Delao: Parts used? Can we have a list?
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
renard381: cool :-)
MROWKAOLKUSZ: Geniusz lol
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
Shuss3539: can you tell us the parts that you used to make this? Thanks
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
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
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
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
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.
Андрей Романович: ишо
DMWMacias: Thank you for the great idea! I scaled mine up a bit to accommodate larger
work. By bolting the jack to the bottom plate and securing the entire thing
in a vise, it makes for a very stable, well built, albeit CHEAP, substitute
for the poor guy like me. We took out some U-Joints this weekend! CHEERS!
haggis240: It's top notch It would take an idiot to get hurt buy this if it jacks up
cars and doesn't slip why wouldn't it do the same
MrLeonard55: Yep, and people in hell need ice water.
greasemonkeypol: 1 1/4 per nut 2,5 per bolt hellooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo
春日 歩: custom made bullcrap probably. that or custom made minced words
Blau Schön: and the zise of the threaded bar ?
Leslie Sterer: For safety sake take a powerarc welder and weld up all of the pieces.
