Hello there I run a small business in Los Angeles and I'm looking to either have someone click parts for me or rent time on a clicker press. I have the small Weaver manual press for my small items but I'm moving into some larger products and I don't have the capacity. Until I can rewire the shop for 3 phase and scrape together the capital for a good hydraulic, I'm looking for a good option. Any tips would be appreciated.

Before I had a clicker press I had a one ton USA made arbor press (I still have it). I used it for several operations. A friend of mine put me up to how to use it for clicking small items. The one ton arbor press is not enough muscle for clicking on its own, but here is how you can click with one. Of course you will need a couple of small steel plates. One for the ram and one for the base. I would not use very large ones and would mount the one on the base permanently making sure it is square with the ram. Then you need a piece of polypropylene for a pad. To click place the leather on the pad and the die on the leather and the top steel plates on the die. Pull the handle down and firmly hold it down. Then Strike the top ram sharply the with a poly or rawhide mallet. This is a slow process but it will work for small items and is much faster than hand cutting. -- Tex
