Have just finished building a press, using a 6000Kg Bottle Jack from Supercheap Auto, the Press is one discussed in great detail on Dan Williams Website.
All up cost was around $200.00 the most expensive part was the 20MM Clear Polycarbonate Blast Screen..
All the Steel was from a scrap yard and everything else from Bunnings...
The threaded rods are 24 MM. Springs are Trampoline springs..
