Arbor Press Plates (Pair)

Cut out of high strength grade 50-A572 steel plate. These arbor press plates are 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 3rd 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."

Having had an encounter with a cheap Chinese chisel and shop hammer that resulted in an afternoon in the urgent care center to have a piece of steel from the hammer cut out of my leg, these just seemed to make a lot sense. Loosing an eye or some other permanent injury of some sort is "life changing". This was a hell of a lot better purchase than the $900 I'm spending each month on Obama Care (that asshole).

Rating I wasn't prepared...
 
I thought I was just going to get a better set of the originals that came from HF, but when they arrived I was blown away by the sheer size and beef of these plates.

Since our safety program is like OSHA on crack, I couldn't risk using the cheap cast plates provided with out HF press. The delivery guy was NOT HAPPY but I know these will be good long after I'm gone!

Rating These won't shatter!
 
Biggest danger is dropping them on my foot :) My condolences to the mailman. I bought an anvil that was made when my grandparents were teenagers. In another 90 years, these will be the same way, still going strong.

Rating Machined Press plates are necessary items needed to prevent injuries and damage
 
Saw one of my HF cast iron plates explode under pressure. Decided to prevent possibility of any injury by finding a machined plate to work with press. These 7x7 plates fit the bill and should prevent any possibility of injuries to me. I also use them for mini anvil plates to tap on Easier to move around than my 12" railroad tie. Great product.
