* For these shop press plans, load capacity is a static, vertical load application. Furthermore, press strength is highly dependent on materials used, construction techniques, assembly methods and proper load application. Load capacity does not include capacity for purchased parts like the hydraulic prime mover. Always use Extreme Caution and proper safety equipment when pressing.
