Had this heavy duty fabricated overarm bought at auction years ago. Wanted to use maybe for blacksmithing or sheet metal work by mounting different tools to it such as a air chisel.

Problem no place for another tool.

Bolted overarm to 1x6 flat stock with a tail sticking out back end. Put tail under ram in hydraulic press and now have heavy duty stand and easy to mount when needed and easy to take off for storage. Just need to add eyebolt so can use hoist for handling.

Gary, nice solution to a space shortage problem.

Many of us scratch our heads at times wondering how to "fit" in another thing we can use.

Looks like a nice press too.

No space??

I see 2 or 3 square inches on that press frame that aren't being used.

:rolleyes:
