New Toy -Jewelery Press

I so wanted one but weight and price to Canada not cheap  I had my guys at work make me the die holders last year to use in a big 20 ton press I had at home  but the press is so large - takes up so much room  
 this year they took scrap and a 20 ton Jack and made me my own that can sit on a table   it's perfect

  1. Aren't you lucky to be working with such a great crew!! I have so many pieces I want to make but the garage has been so cold. It's warmer this week.

    1. I bought some when you showed how to cut them out havnt even tried as yet - will need to cut into circles or squares (I have both containers) easier to make squares - but now...... going to for sure - Its sitting on my kitchen table right now - possibly going to the basement studio - its freezing here right now and so want to be in the studio with my kilns right now in the mood for glass - hoping to get the torch going this week - checked the hoses and the tank outside and I should be ok -just some more clean up and dusting in the basement and I may fire it up
