Our Hydraulic Press was created in an effort to make most of the tools we use from resources around the shop, rather than purchase existing solutions. This course of action allows us to cater to our own specific needs and learn something through the process. This press started as a notebook sketch and after a purchasing a cheap hydraulic floor jack and some work on the plasma cutter, it was complete. We use it for embossing leather, securing items during assembly and installing press fit components. It's quite empowering using tools we create. If you're interested in the file set to make your own, let us know.
