About

H-frame shop press can be used for electric motor and armature repair, installation and removal of pressure-fitted parts, and bending or straightening of metal.

  • Open side heavy duty construction allows work on the longest work pieces
  • Working distance: 1-3/4 in. to 25-1/2 in.
  • Width between channels: 17 in.
  • Raise and lower table for the best working distance possible
  • Ram has spring return to speed up your work

Safety

Important safety information.

  • Wear safety goggles and heavy-duty work gloves when using the press
  • Keep hands away from Arbor Plates and Press Pin during use.
  • Do not move workpiece while compressed.
  • Release load before service or maintenance.
  • Keep area under Arbor Plates clear. If Arbor Plates rest on obstruction (i.e. bolt, debris, etc.), it creates an uneven press, causing excess stress and possible breakage.
  • Avoid off-center loads. Do not operate if workpiece tilts or binds during compression.
  • STOP and release compression if you suspect imminent structural failure. If safe, inspect thoroughly and re-position before proceeding.
  • Do not compress springs or other elastic objects. They could disengage hazardously.
  • Do not stand directly in front of the press when loaded. Do not leave the press unattended when loaded.
