Hydraulic press tonnage


#1

Hello all,

Is a 20 ton hydraulic press enough for working mokume-gane or do I
need a more powerful one?

Thanks for the help,
Dana

Have you any results from working te 20 ton press? untill you try it
you wont know.

My guess is that it will be enough assuming the tooling is up to it.
Experiment !! experiment ! allways experiment!!. youll find the
answer just by doing.

try it on an odd piece of copper or brass first.
