Jewelry Making with a Hydraulic Press

The hydraulic press is a great tool to have in your jewelry studio. Some call it the "biggest hammer" in the well equipped jewelry studio.You can use a hydraulic press along with your disc cutter to make cutting discs easier or to cut really large discs that you could not make with an ordinary hammer.

Even better, you can use a hydraulic press to quickly and easily form very light weight yet durable metal that you can use in your art jewelry. We published two articles on how to use the hydraulic press. The first explains generally How to Use a Hydraulic Press for Jewelry Making  and the second explains How to Make a Silhouette Die   to use with your hydraulic press.
