is this press big enough?
I'm going to be re-gearing my axles myself in a few weeks and I need a press. Do you guys think the harbor freight 12-ton press will work? I know the 20 ton is a good price but I just don't see enough reason to justify getting it. I know a guy with a 50 ton press if I really need something big.

I tried to use the harbor freight 12ton and bent the press lower beam befor the crush sleeve budged on my pinion. It worked well for the bearings though.
