seems to me to be much too low - the die is about 32" from the floor.
I'm thinking of adding extensions to the side members to raise it about
10". There'd be no hydraulic forces on these extensions, just the
weight of the press. The only downside that I can see is that the press
will be somewhat less stable (higher center of gravity). If this is a
problem, the horizontal "feet" could be lengthened. Anybody else done
this, or can anybody think of a why-not?
