Have one just like it and it works super!  If you really wanna do it the easier way, buy an air over hydraulic 20 ton jack.....makes it an absolute breeze to use.


I seen those I think there only about $100. & would sure be easier than pumping that handle. That would give me a nice handy 20 ton bottle jack for other stuff. I'm building a welding cart right now. I think my next project will be a set of those angled press bars that are used on the press for bending right angles.

Pretty cool thread! Right now the handiest new tool I have is a 15-20 dollar(I iforget) Harbor Freight pneumatic stapler. I know, how do you work on your tractors with that? I'm doing some upgrades in my shop to make it more comfortable and gain a bit of room. That in turn, will make it easier to play with the tractors and trucks!

I've been wanting one of these 20 Ton Press from Harbor Freight for a couple of years but never could pull the trigger on it. They usually go on sale for $179.99 but this month with coupon their $139.99. I couldn't pass this up. It's going to be freezing rain tomorrow & nasty out so a lot of coffee & a good fire going on in the shop will be a good day to put this monster together.

I have one also. Has come in handy several times. I made a point for mine to bend metal. Here's the thread for that.

    Went into the local TSC to price some GT tires.   After I got over the sticker shock I walked by a clearance rack.   I picked up this sheet metal nibbler for $6.00.    We had one of these before and over worked it.   I'll try to be easier on this one.    Rick

I have the cheap version that goes in a drill. It works good but not real handy when the piece cant be clamped down. You have to clamp the nibbler in the vice, lock the trigger on the drill, then hope the drill doesnt start flapping around on you if it gets bound up

I just hacked up some 18ga for a guitar project. It only went around 3 or 4 time on that one. this started out as a cheapy Dean EAB. never liked the sound of it and it wouldnt stay in tune. After a few years, the bridge ripped out of it, so I decided to give it a few upgrades.... twin humbuckers. I kept the saddle pickup and will have a fader to blend between the 2. I dont have it done yet to see how it sounds, but getting close.

I always have some kind of small job to do. Need to make a cut in something. Wood, metal, plastic. Tired of figuring out a way to clamp it down solid . Then use a hack saw, jig saw, sawzall etc... So I bought this.

Just arrived the end of last week so haven’t had an opportunity to use it yet.

I have a HF nibbler like it.  Works great still, and used it a lot over the several years I've had it.

Bought a couple long T-27 Torx bits for pulling the cylinder on my chainsaw.

I got a impact screwdriver from harbor freight to fix my sister's car I'm sure it going to come in handy on the garden tractors.
