Wheel Fork Press

This press was built with some scrap material I had at home. Although 2"X10" are specified in my schema at the bottom of this page, I used 2"X6".  All wood parts come from my "nose skin" press that I dismantled to build this one.  The top and bottom are made with some 4"X4"X1/4" that I had left in my garage (that steel I initially purchased to make my own bending brake).

And here is the schema...  please take note that the final product is a bit different.
