    Default Tonnage Recommandation

    Wondering what the proper tonnage for a Hydraulic Puch press would be to punch through 16 - 22 ga. sheet metal.

    I think what Rewt was implying is that without knowing the size of the hole you want to punch.....who knows how much tonnage you need.

    There is a formula, but I'm not a press guy - so let me do a quick google on that for you.

    I thought you were being a smart aleck, but the link is good. Except there is no calculation for springs for strippers (if going that route)...
