Nice accessory rack. Beats always looking for a piece of scrap tube to use or worse, trying to find a matched pair of spacers for a pressing job in the scrap bin.

Nice,I tell folks all the time,building or buying a press is just half the fun:D

And you probably still don't have the right size half the time.

Quick question, I have a smaller press with a shipswheel but the handle for one spoke was not made with the press, 6 spokes & 5 handles, anyone know why? Balance or clearance maybe?

I see "China" on the socket shown close-up, so I'm guessing these are inexpensive sockets. Looks like a nice finish, how were they for machining, and what did you use? Have any broken in use?

Can you tell us about the square drive adapters?

Nice work.

Cameron : I have done similar, but "as needed", rather than make a nice set. I usually use the black impact sockets rather than the chrome, but they are pretty tough stuff; I think 8620 forgesd and heat treated. Decent carbide eats them though. The cheaper chrome is ok to peal off if you take a good cut to get beneath it.

I used 5/8 Kennametal boring bar with Carbide insert for interrupted cutting,used 3 inserts to machine
3/8"-1/2"-3/4"-1" sets,on most sockets the socket 2 sizes smaller will fit inside the larger one.I am going to press dowels in a circle plate to hold the socket in the up position so you can press inside them.The socket holder on the arbor is a 3/4 to 1" impact adapter pressed into the holder ,then when you need to put smaller size use a 1"to3/4 adapter 3/4"to 1/2" and so on.With the machined face works great for bearing,bushing and seals.

Is their any chance it was broke off,when I got this Greenerd it had 2 handles broke off when they were loading it, fell off forklift it came from GM Transmission Plant in Windsor Ont.,I doweled them and welded them back on,appreciated someone taping the broken handles to machine!
