    Angry HF 12 ton Press Help

    I just got done putting together the HF H-rail press....the problem is that it looks like the leaning tower of Pisa....
    Any one have some advice on how to square this thing up.....or tips and tricks to make it work better?.....
    Thank you.....

    Assemble it loosely, don't tighten any bolts until it is standing upright on a level surface.

    I tried squaring it up with the bolts loose but it rocks on the base.....I can square it to the legs, but the sides still lean....mabey I should just take it back and try for a better constructed one...(yeah, right... Chinese POS...but inexpensive...

    When you build guns, the front sight goes on end away from you.
