Need advice on 12ton shop press.
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.
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.
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.
