20 Ton Hydraulic Jewelry Press Without Jack or Gauge

The Potter USA Press has been designed to safely and efficiently form metal in a jewelry studio environment. It has many features including its 1/2 inch steel plate construction, with no welds on the entire press (just on the upper and lower platens). Bolts, nuts and support brackets make it extremely strong and rigid. The press is compact and elegantly designed. 

Must be bolted to a strong table for safe use. Bolt to surface through the feet, using 1/2 13 thread bolt or a strong C-clamp. So not use a portable tool chest or any other light table, as it can all fall over during use.

The upper platen is 8 inches wide x 5 in deep, and the Lower Platen is 8 inches wide x 6 inches deep x 1 inch thick resist flexing and distortion under the most extreme use.

The upper platen is held in with a bolt and is removable. The upper and lower platens can be replaced with 8 in x 8 in aluminum platens, available for order on our website.

Outer Dimensions: 23 inches high x 16.5 inches wide x 7 inches long.

The space between platens is approx. 7 inches if you use a standard height jack, and 9 inches if you use a low profile jack. The low profile jack allows for more space to do deep-draw work.

The frame has a lifetime warranty. Should it ever be damaged or malfunction in anyway, it will be repaired or replaced at no cost.

Press is made of 1/2" thick steel plate. It has been tested to far exceed the 20 ton rating. The frame and platens are powder-coated.

  • Affordable
  • Highly compact
  • Bench mounted
  • Very easy to use
  • Many accessories available
  • Works with other press manufacturer's accessories
  • Lifetime Warranty on press frame
  • Space between platens: 7 inches with a standard height jack or 9 inches with a low profile jack.
  • 6 inch deep x 8 inch wide lower platen
  • Outer dimensions: 23 inches High x 19 inches wide x 10 inches deep.
  • Frame is made to allow for transition to an electric hydraulic system if requested.

The frame will fit a 20 ton Harbor Freight jack as well as any other 20 ton jack on the market. We can assist with jack selection.





Just the BEST !

Fantastic ! Solid , small footprint . You can see every operation from all sides, nothing is blocking your view .
The price is great too also I believe there are no critical welds to wear or brake .Powder coating paint is very thick and should
last forever even with some bumps and dings . Over a great looking piece of machinery that I’m proud to have in my shop !

Where can I find directions for its use, so I can know if this is the right piece of equipment for me? How do I make it work? Thank you.
We are currently working on directions. In the meantime, the best thing to do is to go to the video section of our website and watch the numerous videos. We also have videos on our YouTube channel and videos by Joni Kisro and Melissa Muir are also on You Tube.

Can this be pre ordered in a specific color?
We do our best to carry as many options of colors with each batch of presses we do , but this will vary every time depending on what the powder coater has available. It is very difficult to pre-order a specific color unless you are willing to wait an extended period of time and pay additional charges, as it is more expensive to do specific colors.

How does your layway work. Do I have to pay in full by christmas or can make monthly payment until paid off then shiped
Layaway payments can be made on your schedule. You do not have to pay by a certain date. You can select the color of the press at the time you have paid off the press and it is ready to ship.
