    Don't know about any free plans online, but several sites sell them for $6-10. You don't really need plans, all you need for a press is a bottle jack and some steel framework to support it. Look at some catalog pics and/or snap a few cellphone cam pics of one at a store and you should be able to duplicate it. However, unless you have a good supply of "free" scrap steel to draw from it would probably be cheaper to buy a HF unit when it's on sale.

    I built mine for $50.00 in scrap steel, I had the bottle jack.
    Some cuting & welding and I was done.
    It is like the Harbor Freight 20 ton, I got a 17ton on it.
