  • To be Voted on:

Background

Our blacksmithing setup is pretty basic and making nicer pieces can be exceptionally difficult. This press acts as a power hammer for pressing the steel faster than working with hammers.

Have a Particular Machine in Mind?

Yes, this one.

Wait, why this machine?

It only requires a 110V 20 amp outlet to run, is quiet (most power hammers are extremely loud and bone-rattling), and can be moved easily (it's on wheels).

Why Should We Get This?

It will increase the functionality of the blacksmithing setup we have, allowing for more awesome projects.

Language

We authorize the board to spend $4000 to purchase a 16 Ton Hydraulic Forging Press.
