This is a 1 ton arbor press that was modified by Ed Street and also my dad. It uses aluminum plates.

It’s a DIY version of the Never Knead polymer clay press.

If you want to make your own, the folks at Never Knead now sell a parts kit to modify your 1/2 ton arbor press (like from Harbor Freight) to be a Never Knead.

  1. Would you share the process/dimensions of the modifications you added? I just purchased a 1 ton arbor press and would like some advice on converting it for polymer clay. Thank you!

  2. oooo, if this will avoid driving over old polymer or smashing it with a maul, count me in. Does it work like a drill press and come down and give the little Beelzebub a good whacking so show who really is the boss?
