I've been considering buying a shop press for various tasks, to include pressing out wrist pins.

What would you recommend as a good all around press? 12 ton?

Thanks guys.

Will the HF presses hold up?

4 years on one, and 2 years on the other. still working....Used a couple times a week...suspension parts, engine parts etc...
You could try to find one, "Made in America"...How often will it be used? If not often, the HF will probably be OK...If you need it everyday, I'd find something better..

I went with the HF 20 ton on sale. The only thing that can really wear out is the jack and that's a one minute replacement. I've not used mine a lot but I pressed pretty hard several times with no problems.
