    1 Ton Abor PressI have been looking at half ton arbor presses from different companies. My first choice was to go with the Harbor Freight arbor press but they were never stocked or available in my location. Looking at Amazon, I saw this one ton arbor press for less then what the half ton was being advertised for by the same manufacturer. When it arrived I noticed a hole worn through the box as seen in the photo. The UPS driver allowed me to open it in front of him to just validate nothing was damaged. I assembled the wheel and handle, inserted the knob for the draw handle, adjusted the tension for my preference and it is good to go. It does not ratchet as mentioned in the description. It did come with three setting arbors; one flat, one pointed and one round (dimple). From what I see it will work perfectly for installing frets on fretboards and around the house projects. I gave an overall three rating do to poor packaging and there are some minor flaws in the casting.

    Leather craft must haveI use it for leather craft. The drilled hole in the shaft will fit most of my punches and tools. Secure it to a bench and get a section of pipe for extra leverage. Better than Harbor Freight

    Excellent Little Arbor PressThis is an excellent little arbor press! It works fantastically and is exactly what i needed!

    Well Packaged &crated… and arrived intact. Nice Press.Packaged &crated and arrived intact. That’s a big deal because I ordered another one from a different seller and it just never arrived intact. After three tries from UPS ground, I gave up and ordered this one. This was sent FedEx and arrived in 3 days. All and all it’s a nice unit. Like most lower cost cast iron Chinese / Indian tools, I did have to disassemble and reassemble it. Tuned it up a bit. But in all honesty it was pretty clean inside. Not as much sand left over from the sand casting process as I have seen in many Chinese tools. Tuned up the pawl/ gear contacting points. Drilled small recesses in the (pinion)arbor gear /spindle to accept the two set screws that are holding the locking collar on so that the set screws hold more securely. All in all I’m very happy. As part of the tuning up, I milled a Delrin pad to contact the ram’s two front adjusting ram screws. This allows me to adjust the ram so that it stays put once I am raising or lowering the ram. The DRAKE presses have a hand wheel screw which locks the pinion and therefore does the same thing as this Delrin pad. The two screws already there can do the same thing but the large contact area of the delrin really gives consistent pressure against the ram. I can set the ram to any position now and it doesn’t fall down. The hand wheel easily moves the ram when needed. And the other reason I did this is I did not like the steel to steel contact of the screws alone. All and all, the castings are well made and the fit and finish is above average. My only real complaint is I feel that the bolts are a very poor fit. The holes tapped into the mill are an incredibly loose fit. I was almost going to drill and retap them a larger size. I even checked the holes with known good new metric bolts but the bolts are not the problem. The problem is they just tapped these threads too loose. Probably done on a mal-adjusted CNC thread mill. I decided to leave them alone. If they ever strip out, that’s when I’ll install Heli-coils. But like I said, I’m happy with the press. All and all it’s a well made press which should serve me well. If I was a production shop, I’d buy a Drake. But I’m just a hobbyist. So it will most likely last my lifetime and my sons lifetime.

    NOT Ratcheted!The one ton press is NOT ratcheted! The two ton and three ton might be, the pictures look correct for ratcheted units, but the one ton is not!The unit is as pictured, but since it very clearly states in multiple places that it was ratcheted I assumed the picture was incorrect. The pics are correct, and it does not ratchet. :(It is rare that the handle lines up as needed to provide leverage, and I find I have to add spacers between the press and the piece to get it to line up so that I have the most leverage. Which, if it ratcheted as advertised I would not have to do.I am not sure if I am going to return the unit. I may grind off the first two teeth and adjust the handle that way when I need to. See youtube for videos on that if you want. Or I have a relative with a mill and may have him mill the end to accept a socket, thus allowing me to use a socket or torque wrench to ratchet down to the piece.Bestequip: you might consider milling the end of the shaft where the handle goes in to a six sided shape so that a socket can attached to it so that all of your presses can become ratcheting presses. Charge an extra ten bucks for it. You’re welcome.

    Exactly what I needed!I’m very new with this type of machine, I’m not even sure what a ratchet means lol. So, with the bad reviews saying there was no ratchet, I wasn’t sure what to look for?? .. but regardless this worked perfect for what I needed.It did came with a busted cap that’s on the screw where you use it to hold the lever in place, but that was it. Was very easy to figure out. Happy to snatch it while I could before it was sold out! :)Perfect for my sewing/crating hobby !

  7. LK

    It’s fine for the priceYou get what you pay for. It functions and does it’s basic job. The handwheel is useless and just gets in the way.

  8. Richard Robillard

    great unit for the price! well packaged.ther are only two issues with the press 1. the sharp edges on the hand wheel . 2. the base should be flat on the bottom doesn’t allow for work bench overhang to allow pressing bearings off longer shafts, do to the front feet?

  9. JARED

    Press buy now on this pressFor the price, this really presses my happy button. With a little grease it’s perfect for what I needed

  10. JW

    Actually pretty goodThe 2 ton press I ordered did come with the ratcheting lever as advertised. Works pretty well and is similar quality to Harbor Freight or Grizzly but cheaper.
