Reasonable value generic item

Axminster seem to have gone a bit down market in sourcing this item. Instead of the 'Axminster white' item pictured, the one I received was a generic no-name one finished in a very soft grey hammer paint that had rubbed off against the box and goes tacky when wiped over with meths. parts (pinion spindle/handle and press plate) were loose inside the box without protection. A basically serviceable item once adjusted (bolts bear directly on the ram, no shims, pinion shaft fit is sloppy) but nothing to indicate that it is made to an Axmister specific quality spec. or distinguish it from the ones available from Amazon etc. Reasonably competitively priced however.

remarkable value

I bought one of these five years ago, and just reinstalled it in my new workshop - it's been stored outdoors for two years and shows no signs of rusting. I've used it for pressing small bearings, punching thin metal sheet (the arbour is easily removed and machined to take tooling, unfortunately the press plate isn't retained so you need to press the tool out after punching metal), removing Jacobs chucks from their tapers and broaching keyways. It does exactly what it should and does it well, and at a very low price

Arbor press(AP1)

This is typical of Chinese tooling in that you get a lot of metal for your money but the press could never be described as refined. Having said that it suited me perfectly in that it was cheap enough to buy and is fit for purpose.It was improved by a bit of smoothing out of the roughness that is always present in items built down to a price, bu all in all it was a worthwhile purchase.
