I bought an arbor press - at last.

Right, right . . .

I'd be lucky if that's all that happened.

For me, it'd be - Boing! - Ouch! - Where did the bloody thing go?

Probably disappear down the same deep mysterious rabbit hole and never to be seen again like churchkey/bottle openers hehehe

Well one known black hole of the universe that sucks items forever is located next to your car seat between the seat and the hand break... there's probably like a million dollars worth of coins there LOL

I'm still to find where all the lost socks go, there must be a mountain of them somewhere in the galaxy.

So what are the jobs that require a lot of pressure from the arbor press?

Even quite small clicker dies need a surprising amount of pressure. Even walking this die around my 1 ton press (as opposed to pressing in one go) required an extension on the bar.

Oh.  Hang on, I'm confused now.  Isn't an arbor press and a clicker press two different things?  I wouldn't dream of replacing a clicker press with a drill press.

yes, but for small items an arbor press will do the job. I use my Tandy press and metal dies to punch out the bases for game playing pieces from thin suede pig skin

Hi,

I’m not sure if you solved your magnet problems (shapes, durability, sourcing), but K&J Magnetics has ALL kinds of shapes and strengths.  They can also make custom magnet shapes, but those are $pendy.

Here’s a link to their site:

Enjoy,

Michael
