Pretty sweet, simple, small footprint... meanwhile the swiss are lauding a research paper on why pressing in an oven is better than a can crusher. I will see if I can find it.

What is that thing? It’s not that difficult, I’ve done pressings with a brick twice when the piston in my Ivoclar furnace got stuck. It worked fine.

I stumbled across this thing a few months ago and thought it was a well done hoax like the microwave denture trick we were shown last April 1.

I can't believe anyone is buying this thing. Just use a hydraulic denture press or even a bottle jack and a welded frame if you're gonna hack outside the box that far.

we want to introduce glass ceramics, I am collecting information about equipment. is such a device ok? it does not use vacuum. Do dual function with press ovens use a vacuum during the press?

The Ivoclar oven I use is under vacuum, the piston is driven by compressed air. No idea about newer Ivoclar ovens or other brands.

Newer ones still use Vacuum. But the piston is not driven by compressed air, anymore.

I believe it's a simple controlled expansion air cylinder in a sturdy frame, it retails for about 800USD
Like I just saw on Everybody Loves Raymond. 2 4" prices of 2x4 for his fly eliminator high school project. "Get fly between, press together, wait for the crunch sound, rinse and repeat" Got to Love that one!!!😄😄
