Sometime ago I noticed that the oil was leaking out of the hydraulic
jack of my press… However, it seems to be working fine now, and I am
able to get it up to the desired pressure.
I was under the impression that one could refill the jack with oil
if it is needed. I notice a small opening at the top of the jack,
presumably for oil but I have been hesitant about adding any as the
jack seems to be working.
My press is one that I had made following the instructions in the
Susan Kingsley book. I got the jack from an automotive supply place.
I wonder if this is the same kind of jack that comes with the Booney
Doone press, in which case I wonder if Oil could be added if
necessary. Mine is a 20 ton jack.
