Just thought I'd let everyone know, drill presses are now only 10 at Netto this weekend, I use mine for pressing rockets and whistles when I dont require a very high pressure (probably about 1 ton max if I had to hazard a guess). Unsure if its high enough pressure for pressing BP, I use my 6 ton hydraulic press for that. Its far cheaper than an arbour press, and also has a good movement range, seems ideal, its a similar design to the one BigG was using for his rocket demonstration at the convention.

Just pressed a few 10mm end burners and a 10mm whistle, all worked fine so it seems it reaches the required pressure to make a solid fuel grain and nozzle.

You can never have a long enough fuse...
