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."

Wow, these things are beefy for sure. Much like the other reviews, these shocked me when they showed up. Needless to say, I can't wait to use them. These dwarf the ones that came with my HF 20 ton. I am much more comfortable using these. Thank you!

I recently purchased a Jet 15 ton press, after looking at the supplied arbor plates, I wanted something larger ; I decided to take a chance on your arbor plates with the discounts . Totally pleased with the quality ! Anyone contemplating a press purchase, no matter the manufacturer, should make these part of your purchase. Thanks for a great product

Ok so I've been eyeing these plates for a long time. Pulled the trigger and they arrive in just a couple days well packaged. First the pictures don't do them justice. My expectation was some flame cut heavy plate. Part of the reason for not pulling the trigger. But when they arrive the surface has been machined removing the mill scale. Not sure if they all get this, but mine where very well made. They are heavy and I'm sure the mail man was like WTF

Excellent plates for my shop press, no worries about these becoming bent or damaged. They work very well (flat and stable) as a base for my homemade bending brake attachment. Worth the cost.

Received plates as shipping time stated and packaged well. Was lots heavier than thought, had to use hand truck to get to shop and look great when unpackaged. One hundred times better than ones come with press.
