* For these shop press plans, load capacity is a static, vertical load, center between the posts. Furthermore, press strength depends on chosen materials, construction techniques, assembly methods and proper load application. Load capacity does not include capacity for purchased parts like the hydraulic prime mover. Take time to build it well, then it will serve you well.
