  • Arbor press tonnage?

    Rather unimportant question, but thought I'd ask anyway: How (or why) do they rate arbor presses?

    I just picked up one of ENCO's imports (2 ton, 88lb, on sale for $50; MSC has an 88lb 2-ton for $135, go fig ) and once cleaned up and the gibs adjusted, it works quite well.

    But, I was wondering, where do they get the "2-ton" rating? Do they figure the average bloke is 200 lb and the rack is 10:1?

    Good question; I've wondered myself. Have something similar myself, but the arm/handle is like four feet long.

      Aaarrgghhhh! Doc!

      Don't let "like" get into the written word as well as the spoken.........
      If you live in CA, as I do, those redundant "like"s will drive you nuts!

        Ken you and I have at least one thing in common. The problem is, all that stuff starts in CA and then spreads to the whole country. Remove 'like' and 'you know' from the spoken language and most of today's youth might as well be mute. ...hmmm, come to think of it that might not be a bad idea.

        Regarding the arbor press ratings: I've always assumed that was the point beyond which the things might be expected to break (ie. weakest component).

          The ratings are based on the amount of tonnage the press frame will handle without breaking.

            Like, wow - man. As long as the handle don't like bend - then you can exceed that tonnage - like if you're a big fat dude like me.

                            The irony here is that most of this conversation came off from Ken's tangent about using the Vally-girl-ism "like", when in fact that word does not appear in my original post in any form.

                            Doc.
