Anybody in California have a 30 ton jack they want to swap something for?


I was setting up my new press tonight..and the jack I thought was 20
ton..was 12 ton.
The press is rated at 30 tons..so anyone got one they want to trade
Stuff for? Harbor Freight has em for $80..but I dont have $80 at the
moment to buy a jack with.

That's OK. You also don't have any 32" diameter prop shafts to straighten on that press at the moment, so methinks it'll work on everything else you throw at it.
Silly Rabbi.

I don't have a 30 ton jack either. I will add my own tangent however. I've got a 12 ton press, and when I misplaced the jack for it I bought a 12 ton air over hydraulic for it. I have since found the original jack. Its has sat in the corner gathering dust for 4 or 5 years now. Air over is awesome when you have work to do, and when I need a little more precise control I can still put a jack handle in it.

Yah..I was thinking about that. Going through the Harbor Freight website and pondering.
But..and I have one..several in fact...but Id need the air compressor running to do anything serious with the press. And with the economy being the way it is...that power bill....cringe. The press will be there after the economy comes back. The power bill comes every month.
I guess Ill simply kick it around, check all the yard sales and whatnot and maybe Ill find an American made big jack for little money.
12 ton will get me by, I reckon.

Geez louise. If he has people bringing him work, then how does he have so much time for yakking here? And considering that he claims to charge $75 an hour, then why is he broke and wasting multiple hours *talking* about getting a cheap jack, instead of working for a single hour and buying a new one? Even more to the point - if one can create an alternate reality by posting to Usenet, then why not create a better one?

Lots of oil fields here. Lots of heavy machinery running 24/7
Lots of Heavy Stuff.
Maybe something will turn up

Drill collars - I made a few of them in my day. Okay, I did the preliminary work, which let the next guy bore the 2.5 hole down the centre of the 34 foot shaft. Al Hopper had the joy of turning them OD to ID. All on manual machines, mind you.
