Building the Press
Several years ago I had my husband build me the tile press featured in Frank Giorginis Tile Book. It was very large and cumbersome. It had a long pipe handle , lots of bungie cords and it took a lot of force to pres the tile! Had to put a handle etension on it and I still had a difficult time using it. There has to be a better way! I looked a bumper jacks, hydraulic jacks, any kind of jack. Googling presses and jack showed a picture of an Arbor Press. It is used in the automotive industry to do something with brakes and bearings I think. I had found my solution!! The Press sells at Harbor freight for $75.
