Arbor Press Plates (Pair)

Cut out of high strength grade 50-A572 steel plate. These arbor press plates are sold as a pair and are designed to replace the junk cast arbor plates that  are prone to shattering under heavy load. 

We currently offer 4 different sizes of arbor plates

7.00" X 7.00" X 1.0" Ideal size for factory replacement of the 12 ton Harbor Freight cast arbor plates

8.50'' X 10.00'' X 1.50'' Ideal size for factory replacement of the 20 ton Harbor Freight cast arbor plates

9.75" X 9.75" X 1.50"

12.00" X 12.00" X 1.50"

The low cost cast arbor plates that are typical provided with hydraulic presses, often fail under shock loading. 

Learn from others and look at the 4th picture above provided by Mud Slayer 2.0 on Pirate4x4.com who was generous enough to provide the story below.

"I was pressing on a bushing using a Harbor Freight 20 ton press with the provided cast arbor plates. I felt the bushing starting to get stiff. about 1/4" left to go I gave one good pull and I heard POW! I felt like I had been punched in the face by a gorilla as the cast arbor plate had just exploded.

One of the guys in the shop came over to check on me and said "Dude you're face is bleeding" I had a gash right next to my left eye. I was driven to the Dr. office where I got 8 stitches. I was told I was very lucky I didnít lose my eye.

When I returned to the shop I was looking at the press and noticed the porous nature of the arbor plates. This was the day I learned about the material properties of Cast Iron."

These arbor plates are everything I expected and, I think, an outstanding value. Immediately moved the cheap HF plates that came with my 20T press to the scrap pile. Was only born with one pair of eyes and I'd like to watch my kids grow up.

It's not easy to find replacement press plates or larger plates if you need them. The presses I was purchasing came with plates that didn't seem adequate. I've bought several sets of the 9.75" inch plates and 1 set of the 12". The 12" inch are almost a two person job to pick up so too big for my purposes! They are a much better price than trying to buy the steel and get them cut yourself!!
