press question

I noticed homier is selling a 6 ton A frame style press for $39.99. And do a search for 6 ton shop press. Is this press to small for most AK builds? It definitely is a good price - but I remember most use a 12 or 20 ton press. I currently have access to a press, so am not really in the market for one - but figured for the price this would be a good one if it would work for doing AK builds.

They come around all the time. Just get on their mailing list and they let you know when they come near you. I think your right about the rivets. Mine seem to smash farily easily with the 20 ton. I couldn't find the picture of the 6 ton. When I push out my barrels, the barrel is face down with the trunnion up. I could easily do it with a press that had just 6 in. to work with. When I reinstall mine, I hammer it in. If I could get 6 in. of clearance I think it is doable to remove barrel. Just depends on if you are using special jigs like Xebec's. I think the barrel is reversed with it and you would need a lot of clearance. Can't beat the price though.
Everytime I show up to see if they have one, they are already sold out. If you do try to get one when they come in town, go early.
