hotbarrel said:I crush the rivets on a 55 ton HOWEVER you do NOT need that. I watch the guage on the press and it reads about 11 ton at the end. many guys have used a ten ton with great results. my oppinion however is if you can at all afford the few extra bucks get the twenty ton.
Second topic... hand opperated only this way you can feel what is happening. yes you will feel the resistance as it increases. With electric you have no feel and by the time you see something wrong it may be too late. spend the extra you would have spent for a power press and get the 20 ton.
HAY this is just my oppinion
I recieved a sale flier from Homier (sp?) the other day. They have listed a 20 ton, square frame press for $99.00! I think that I paid close to $180.00 for mine at Harbor Freight!ChrisAKG said:20 ton? Model? And what should it cost? Any options needed? Electric or hand pump? Since it will only be used for builds I don't think I need top of the line.
REALLY? Hrm I may just have to get one at that price! I'm going to be up in NN this weekend and may as well head up there to the sale while I'm at it.Thumb Clip Pull Pin said:I recieved a sale flier from Homier (sp?) the other day.

Check them out. I think that they have a web site. They will be having a tent sale at the Richmond Virginia raceway starting today, 18 March through Sunday, 21 March.

I purchased the $99.00 Homier press last year when they came to town. I built 6 guns with it so far. The way to purchase from Homier is when they come to your home town. Get there early because supplies are limited. A few percent sales tax is much better than a huge shipping charge. The Homier press bolts together and is not welded.yosuthnmasa said:

Perhaps a search would help you.
