The Press Buddy™, designed and created by industry innovators Jim Binnion and Chris Ploof, is unique tooling that allows you to perform controlled forging and forming of metal—especially mokume gane billets—in an hydraulic press. This kit is made specifically to fit the greater working area of the Bonny Doon Mark III press. With the Press Buddy, you can complete operations normally done on a power hammer or high-tonnage press quickly and effectively with a high degree of control over your metal. Imagine being able to take your mokume billet to workable sheets in a fraction of the time and with precise, repeatable results! No longer spend hours carefully thinning out a billet that you have already spent hours to create. And, that's not all. The Press Buddy can be used for a wide variety of metalworking operations—a variety that increases dramatically with the addition of accessory kits (available separately) designed to partner with the Buddy to enhance your creative options.
