Hello,

I am wandering if any of the down under jewellers can help me to
locate an Australian supplier of rubber for my hydraulic press?

Hi Pierre,

I am wandering if any of the down under jewellers can help me to
locate an Australian supplier of rubber for my hydraulic press? 

If I were you, I’d try to locate a supplier that sells items used in
machine shops & mechanical industries. These types of places usually
have rubber & urethane in sheets of different thickness & rods of
different diameters.

Regarding rubber for the hydrolic press in Australia- in Art School
we used old rubber reclaimed from tires for dieforming in the press.
It worked well cut to the size of the die, overlapping the sides a
few inches to allow for the press pushing the pieces into the form.
Stack them as high as you want the piece to be deep.

Hope this helps a little-
