Did you cut any half circles or notches in the 1/2" plate before you welded them? If so what did you use?
I did not, they are just some scrap we had from a project. They work for about 50% of the stuff I use the press for. Pinion and carrier bearings need the HF arbor plates, but those jobs aren't very demanding.

Awesome thread...

I was going to get some reviews here on the HF air tools before I bought them (just like the GearWrench purchases I just made) and I was ecstatic to see the impact guns on here. Yay coin!:)

Damnit, way to make me want to buy new ones. I know mine suck already!

I just wish those things weren't so expensive [I know, "how can you put a price on safety" is coming]
Couldn't you have a set cut to your specs for fairly cheap? My local steel place has all sorts of remnants(up to 1.5' thick!) For great prices. They do CNC plasma too. Probably could get a set for less than 50.

I'll be doing it in a makeshift booth in the garage.

Pick up an extra moving blanket and wrap it around the pieces you're pressing.

Pass through socket set... on sale.

Just got the pass through rachet set on sale for ($19 IIRC) my shock replacement... goes all the way to 19mm (including 18mm) and I stood up just fine paired against my IR TiMax impact on 150psi of CO2. :)

Got this same set today. Used a 20% off coupon and got it for 16 bucks. Killer deal and the package says lifetime warranty.

Jumbo Wrenches ?

Has anyone tried the jumbo wrenches? The big ole adjustable wrench I got there years ago has worked fine for all of the plus-size bolts, but thought wrenches might be a little easier to maneuver. Especially the ones with the angled ends.
