    I figured something was up when I placed an order a few days ago and did not hear back... A quick google search took me here.
    I am glad I ordered the conversion for my arbor press, looking forward to receiving my order.
    Thanks

    Loved the products you sold... filled a much-needed niche for the community, thanks for your unwavering service all these years.

    Hey, me again!

    More stuff we are now out of:
    small tap wrench (0-1/4)
    medium flexstone files
    10-32 JAM nuts
    mini ratcheting bit sets

    Still have lots of stuff left including scalpel blades. We found another box of spools so we will continue getting ground braid as long as you all keep getting rolls of it. I also have lots of rivet kits. No limits on anything just need to see it all disappear

    I am still tossing in extras where ever possible so don't miss out on yours! It's fun getting free surprises eh?

    Couldn't hold off from making another order before shop closes, need to stock up on those rivets so I don't have to bother about them ever again.

    Quoted from PinRestore:

    you can probably build your own with an arbor press from Harbor Fright.

    Is there any advantage to buying the larger 1 ton press over the 1/2 ton??
    I saw you mentioned both on the kit description.

    Already placed an order, glad I caught this post!!!

    The 1 ton will work just fine. All parts will fit.

    ...

    I'm wondering the same. Considering buying a 1 ton press only because it has a bigger gap (theoretically allowing better accessibility when riveting) compared to the half ton variant but it weights quite a lot. If the 0.5 ton press is more than enough for riveting I might get the smaller press for less hassle moving it around.

    Any input on this?

    There is a slight increase in throat depth and height with the 1 ton. It's about 35% larger, physically, than the 1/2 ton. Even though the weight is double, the casting gets thicker everywhere so the size gain is smaller.
