    Depends what you are calling portable. I made a h style press where I work I would transport it wherever I needed it if I had to.

    I also made another press that uses the all thread I use in my hollow ram. It has holes in 1" plate that are braces so I can either use 3 or 4 rods whatever I need to in the situation. Hyd Press.jpg
