  • Little press I forgot I had

    I bought this little Greenerd arbor press,well so long ago I can't remember when.I do remember that I paid the princely sum of $30 for it and two tap handles.Anyway I was cleaning up the other day and found it and since today was a rainy day,I decided to clean it up and paint it.

    Before-


    And after-




    I took about an hour to disassemble,clean and bead blast,then paint the casting.Highlighting the lettering took longer than that,to remember how I did it the last time

    The paint is just Rustoleum Hammered 7212830 Light Blue.

      I have the same press, tho missing the slot plate.
      I would love the dementors of the plate and slot sizes so that I could duplicate

        Now you can’t use it for fear of getting it dirty.

          I have extra plates. I will be happy to send you one for the cost of shipping.

            Nice Job! How would you like a nice vacation in the Black Forest of Germany? I have lots of stuff for you to clean up and paint just like your arbor press!

              Good work AND a respectable paint job!

              I haven't used my press for so long, it's covered in bench rubble. I think it's holding an air hose too.

                  This one I don't think is original.It's thinner and made from steel,the dimensions of the factory plates are here-

                        That's one thing I like about the Hammered paint and the original Hammerite,nothing really sticks to it once it's fully cured.

                          How did you paint the lettering? By a roller, flat plate or by brushing freehand?

                            I was wondering the same thing since he stated it took longer than anything else, a roller of the correct pad density would make short work of that no?

                            it's a nice little press - I could see having something like that, but I have my mills quill for the light stuff and my 12 ton for heavier, still would be nice to fill in that gap with a medium duty unit like that...

                              That's a cutie! Handy for small bearings and the like I'm sure. I've broken so many fewer things since I got a arbor press
