Default I picked up a 40 ton press today

I picked up a 40 ton press today off market place for $230.
It is funny it is pneumatic but they never connected up air to it.
I also got victor torch, hose and gauges for $50
We make a lot of dimples on our 20 ton press but " Max's it out this one should be much better.
We will use the other one just as a metal brake now.


This is not my shop.

You're going to have a full metal shop pretty soon! Nice pickup.

Thanks, it has been a wild ride this summer. We are at gross sales over 27K so far. Not real big for a full-time business but a lot for a side business.

I have all my equipment paid off now so I need to find equipment deals so I can make profit.

When I say paid off the metal business borrowed money from my primary business.
The metal business has paid my other business back. The money was not borrowed in the traditional sense.

I did not keep this more than a year. It really worked great.

I bought those two new presses I sure do not need 4 presses.
I sold this one on marketplace today for $675. Not a bad profit plus this money can go towards the two 55 ton presses. They drove from outside Birmingham Alabama 5 1/2 hours one way to get it.

Crazy but they brought cash so it works for me.

Thanks, it takes my other presses $1500 - 675 down to $825.

The other thing they sent him in dually truck that got 10.5 miles to the gallon.
The press was only 525 pounds.

The press I sold is 1300 plus tax new. If you needed one it was not a bad deal.
