    I was thinking maybe a log splitter. But if you don't think it has enough power for a press then I doubt it would have enough power for a log splitter.

    Hydraulic pump unit

    Picked this up at a recent estate sale.

    We plugged it in and the motor ran
    Got it for peanuts as the guy seemed to want stuff gone.

    It was filthy nasty so I gave it a clean up when
    I got it back to the home shop.

    I grabbed it thinking maybe it would have
    enough oomph to use as part of my up coming
    hydraulic shop press build.

    Its a Dayton Model 5W033.
    A quick search showed 1000 psi pump.
    The tank/ reservoir is about the size
    of a one gallon fuel can ...for reference,

    I don't have any cylinders other than a few
    small bottle jacks, so one would have to
    be obtained perhaps.

    I don't think this pump would have
    enough grunt to be used for the
    shop press project.

    At the moment I can't think of
    another use for this unit.

    Anybody nearby have a project that this
    unit would fit in?

    If so, it's up for grabs. Click image for larger version

    Currently (no pun intended), it's wired for 110 volts.
