Very good but a few quality control issues

" Arrived with the box in very bad shape. The press itself is practically indestructible the gauge is not. Also, there is the possibility of loose parts falling out of the box. Luckily everything was there.
The adjustable horizontal cross member on which you place your work did not sit on all 4 corners so it rocked slightly. This didn't seem to be a problem for me,
After extending the piston the first time subsequent tries to pump it down to meet my work object resulted in it returning about as far as each pump extended it. (It has a spring return). I found some paint residue in the chamber where the check valve ball resides preventing it from sealing. I was able to dump it out with a little oil, reinsert the ball and all was well.
The 2 mounting flanges on the pump cylinder are not parallel so I couldn't mount it firmly in its intended position. I could probably rotate the cap to which one of the flange is welded but I decided it wasn't worth it and just use the pump cylinder on the bench which I think is more convenient if you have the space.
All in all a few quality issues caused me to drop a star from this rating. Still a good value.

10 Ton Press

By Nickt7
from SC
" Hi, I just wanted to let you and everyone else know that this is the best press I have ever used. It will do the job with ease. I use it to press off and on bearnings. This is a heavy duty press which I really did not need a 10 ton press but it's nice to have one just in case one need it. This press can press a punch through a iron core with ease. Thanks Northern Tools for a GREAT Product!!! "
