I am determined to make a press. I own an old, well made 20 ton
bottle jack and wonder if it can be used for the press.
My mind says that the calibrations on the gauges would be little
more accurate than pumping.- especially when each job would require
experimentation on amount of pressure to achieve desired effect. It
would not be so, I would think, with any automated systems .
Would anyone who has used a hand powered bottle jack in presses
making jewelry please tell my if they can be reliably used without a
Thank you so much!
