Topic tags/keywords: laminating press

I am trying to get a laminating press made. But I can’t find the parts. Can anyone identify the names of these two parts that are circled. I searched and searched and couldn’t find them.

Also does anyone have any plans on converting one of theses 20 ton shop press to a laminating press http://www.toolplanet.com/product/PRESS-12-TON-HYDRAULIC-2-PCS-SE?vfsku=401996&gpla=pla&gclid=CjwKEAiA18mzBRCo1e_-y_KLpXISJACEsANGmK4b-e9XAWer3W2Dzi6u6Thvv3FNTd0e4igxOPUCKxoC20Tw_wcB

Or, buy a Harbor Freight C clamp and cut it up to make a press screw as Shipwright teaches here

I have two fairly serious screw veneer presses, one made with just the above Lee Valley screws http://lumberjocks.com/projects/49934
and one made with a combination of those and some that I made very inexpensively from Harbor Freight C clamps

Here’s a blog on the C clamp conversion. ..... don’t laugh, they work just as well as the “nice” ones. :-)

It’s nice to build some flexibility into a press like this. I often have three or four different areas in the press in use at the same time.

With the price of those clamps, you might be able to build a vacuum press for not much more, and have far greater capacity.

So I found me an old press that I am going to restore. Has anyone ever restored a name plate? Any help would be appreciated.
