Cold Forging with a P6 Flypress

Cold Forging

A Flypress is a mechanical press operated by hand. When the handle is pulled, the inertia of the wheel sends great pressure downward allowing for steel to be worked cold. This, in addition to the ease of making tools for this press, translates into quicker production and cheaper material costs. (propane for our gas forges) This enables us to keep costs lower for you, and gets your commission into your hands quicker.

The bowl in this demo would take much longer if done hot, with less efficiency. This is simply a demo of the ease and power of a flypress.
