Hi CB


Nice one  :thumbup: , good to hear you saved an old tool and gave it a new lease of life  :med: , So its a modern version of the old fly/toggle  press .

 Any chance when your next in the shop could you please take a few close ups of the press , just so I can get a better look see  :)

Cheers Rob

Here's a closer look Rob, the C frame still needs further cleaning before the paint goes on but mechanically its done. Full stroke is 1 1/4" and retraction is adjustable from there down to 0. There is a pedal and linkage for operation to go on when it's ready to go.

Cheers CB

Cheers for  the photos CB


It looks a handy tool to have in the shop  :dremel: , do you have a specific punching operation in mined ?  , When I get a bit better sorted I will be making a set of round punches for my  fly press .

I have a couple of sheet metal manual punch sets with full sets of punch dies.I intend on making an adapter to mount in the die set and accept those punch dies. I also intend on making some furniture for the die set to form small sheet metal items such as brackets.

Yes I suspect there is enough machined iron in there to take you through a good time warp and back. :bugeye:
