Review by Goomer on July 30th, 2013
I'd use this much more often if I had room to keep it set up permanently. It needs to be anchored down to a bench or similar to take full advantage of the force you can exert. I have a smaller version (1/2 ton) that is not nearly as useful as this. An arbor press is fast to operate and gives a great deal of control over how much force is being exerted. You can feel what's going on as opposed to a hydraulic press. My only complaint is the handle won't stay locked in the position you want - the screw works itself loose. Really a non-problem for me, I have a cheater handle that extends the existing and that locks tightly to the existing handle - no slipping on my homemade. A very useful tool.

You need to tweak it a little but then it does a very good job. It's heavy and solid. I like it and use it often.
