Plus it would be nice to have one at the shop.

regarding the 12T, i'm not sure. I thought it would be sufficient for anything i'm thinking of right now. Billy you have any other ideas on what would require more than 12T?

I had to use a 20 ton press a couple years ago to press out my front wheel bearings, so I would think 20 ton would be sufficient. some of those bearings are really hard to press out. I would think bushings should be easier.

I am not saying that a shop press is a bad idea, just saying that if you only need a press for very very occasional use perhaps your money is better spent elsewhere, considering that you can occasionally rent bearing press kit from autozone. But it's your money so obviously you do what you think is best.

BTW, I've used a press occasionally at work too if necessary.

what tonnage was the press we had to use for my caster bushings ilya? I thought it was 50 or 70 whatever the biggest one was. I remember it was sexy time explosion when they finally went BOOM (removing)

I was looking at a press for a bit for doing those.. I just recall people saying on forums it's worth getting the big one so you dont eventually have to get 2 because you will end up needing more.

looks like the big jump is from 20 to 50T on harbor freight. i'd split this one with you if you are set on buying one, but this is backordered. maybe find it locally?

also regarding the lottery, that one he posted is only ~130, not the biggest lotto ticket

If my truck is parked along the main shop door (the big roll-up one) it will not be in the way, right?

Park it with headlights facing the roll up, preferable facing Tomas' truck.

Heads up, Kathy told me tonight that they are having a wedding for her son Ryan on the weekend of Aug. 26-28, so the access to trailers and driving to the back of the property will be restricted. This is the weekend before Labor Day so get your stuff done early and get your trailers out before Friday 26AUG if you're going to need them that weekend.
