Expandable Round Presses
Don Moss, Tallula, Ill.: Don makes expandable round presses to fit inside bent augers to restore them to working condition at a fraction of the cost of new augers. "The press in the photo is for 12-in. augers. I have another one for 6-in. augers. I use a 3-ton portable hydraulic jack to operate it, using a combination of pressing and careful hammering on the auger tube to do repairs. I can add as much hydraulic line as necessary to get the press as far inside the auger as needed. I came up with this idea three years ago and some of the augers I've straightened are still running as good as new (ph 217 634-4158)."
