... and a cheese from me for some very neat and well-finished heavy-duty engineering.
It's a pity that car manufacturing in Australia is stuffed. You could branch out into pressing bearings onto axles and the suchlike otherwise.

Thanks for wonderful comments and the cheeses.  Building these presses has been a rewarding experience and leant something every step of the way - and re-ignited a few passions along the way like returning to my hand planes and chisels instead of a router and circular saw.  Just something about peeling wafer thin pieces of wood to the required size.
