    Now I’m biased so take my word with a grain of salt, however, I’ve been using the demo press for the last couple of weeks to test it out and I can say with certainty it’s one of the best little presses’ I’ve used. The fact it runs on a standard Aussie power plug and still has the power it does boggles my mind. I’ve had 0 complaints about noise from my neighbors who have a window right next to my forge. I love this press and it’s been a dream to use, and if you can get yourself one I highly recommend it as an investment. If you watch the videos on our Youtube you’ll understand why.
