astromech After doing quite a bit of research, the only people I see setting up bottle jack presses use compressed air to speed things up. The bottle jacks aren't fast enough without the air assist to be useful.
So what I did do was get a kit to assemble a Treadle Hammer. Basically a foot stomp swings a sledge hammer with a spring on top. I've got to build the stand, but I've got to figure out if I want to wheel it over my anvil, or build it's own anvil.
Past that, there's a custom kitchen knife out the door to a famous floridian. I'll get better pictures when it stops raining.
