Oh yeah. Since you mentioned cost. I USED to use
automotive machine shops. I was doing subframe
bushings. The guy charged me like $60., used some
beat-up bullsh*t arbors (pieces of pipe and such) and
ruined 2 of the 4 bushings. Gave me some BS about
they wouldn't go in straight. That's when/why I
bought the press. It has paid for itself many times
over in saved time, money and hassle.
