    I Thomas, I use dropshots as a free picture hosting site...upload the picture to the site...view it in your gallery and right click to copy, then come back to the forum and in your post chose the picture icon beside the smiley face in the task bar and paste the link....voila!

    if you use dropshot, I put my curser over the picture and right click and select copy....I don't use the links offered on the right side...they don't work on the forum for some reason. once back on the forum I just paste to image url box in the image icon.

    Dam you got enough steel in that thing to make 10 presses.
    Here is the press and rolling mill I made about 10 years ago.I have a pile of pictures and a complete write up until good old PHOTO BUCKET screwed everything up last year. Anyway hare are a few pictures. 6 inch bore ,3 inch rod right now can press 30 tons, can be set higher but no need to.
