    Default Need advice on 12ton shop press.

    Gents,
    I am getting close on buying a 12 ton shop press from Harbor Freight. I see they have two models available. One is the 'A' frame varient here http://www.harborfreight.com/cpi/cta...temnumber=1667
    and the other is the standard model here http://www.harborfreight.com/cpi/cta...emnumber=33497
    The A frame goes on sale for $79.99 every so often while the standard one runs $99.99 on sale. Also one is much lighter than the other.

    My question is which one is the better of the two or are they the same with just a difference in looks and weight????

    I plan on ussing the press for some AK work as well as automobile repair.

    Thanks
    helldriver

    I bought the A-frame one on sale for 79.99 and it has worked great.

    I bought the standard one and have had no problems w/it. I saw the A-Frame for cheaper and thought about it but went the other route. Either one would work.

    Thanks guys for the input. I think I am going to go with the A frame version when it goes back on sale. I'm going to cristen it with my first ever attempt at building an Ak type rifle. It will be an amd 65 on a OOW receiver.

    For the price of the A-Frame press you cant beat it. I hope it works out for you. Good luck on your build and post some pics when you can.

    I have the regular style, but I see no reason why the A frame wouldn't work just as well. Go for it.
