I was hoping someone could give me some information on cold presses and how to make a manually operated one for my shop. I am hoping to use the press to laminate two or three, one inch pieces of hardwood(approximately 8 inches wide). Currently I have been using Jergensen bar clamps spaced every 10 to 12 inches but was hoping to find a more uniform and effective method. I have seen some of the hydraulically operated variety that are used in commercial operations but was hoping to find something more suited to a small shop. Any help or info would be very much appreciated.
