Toledo 1000-ton Press Located at the American Civil War Center at the historic Tredegar Iron Works, this press was used to finish iron and steel parts. It straightened hundreds of thousands of tons of metal in its lifetime. The machine weighs about 40 tons, and it generates 1000 tons of force. It was purchased in the 1920's and was moved to Cleveland when the Tredegar Company's equipment was purchased in 1986
Don Hoey, who made this lovely toolpost milling attachment, explains that "I made this to allow me to machine small complex parts, like the hollow gear cover shown, for my model Myford ML7 lathe. The mill mounts on the Super7 lathe toolpost, with power supplied from a Minicraft transformer. The large knob gives fine control over 3/4" of vertical movement." A visually stunning, beautifully executed device.
