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."

Bought these to replace the plates that came with my Harbor Freight 20 ton press. HUGE quality difference. These guys are massive and heavy duty. Feel safe using the press to do any work now.

These arbor press plates are well worth the money. I didn't want to chance the plates that came with my press on maybe shattering plus I needed them for my press brake to run the entire width. These are quality plates and very happy I purchased them. They are well worth the money spent especially for safety operation.

I am very satisfied with the plates. They are machined, not torch cut, and have a variety of openings to fit your object during pressing. Delivery was free and quick.

Theses are just what I needed to go with my hydraulic press. The main purpose was to get a bed for the 20 Ton Finger Brake to set on. Excellent price, quality, and finish on the plates. I would highly recommend these Arbor Press Plates.

I bought these plates for the shop just to give us some additional working surface area on the bed of the press. I didn't realize how monster these things were until they showed up! The faces were machined flat which was an added bonus and the edges were flame cut with a nice finish as well. They provide the most solid surface I've ever had on any press. I'm actually thinking about buying another set just to use as a table or rest for other projects.
