  • Some kind of luck, tool purchase

    You all probably remember me building the HSM 50 ton press.. well I have been waiting on the hydraulic pump to come along. (or plumbing in my shop for pressure)

    I bought a Hydraulic punch press at auction for $175.. It has slide bearing guide rods on each side, a adjustable bed and electric valving.

    Ain't it just so? I could've saved $1,000 and a cut finger by waiting.. but then I wouldn't have two of them..

    Now back to the basics.. building a die..
    Mien kampf. (my struggle) One more day another step ahead..
