Jewelry Press, Tools And Parts

Why did I decide to make this press? I built my first press nearly 15 years ago and have used them in the creation of my work ever since. They are quiet, small and efficiently move metal. I have a hydraulic press, but the immediate feedback from a lever press gives you more useful feedback and much faster cycle times. Throughout my journey with presses, each time I got frustrated I looked to the commercial world to simply buy a refined ready to use press like this—it didnt exist. I decided to produce this myself because it is such a useful tool I want other jewelers to have a chance to use it!
