What can I do with a Free 10 Ton Press?

Discussion in 'The Hokey Ass Message Board' started by Chucky, Mar 12, 2012.

  1. My brother (not a car guy) emailed me today and said his work no longer needed their 10 ton press (purchased new in 2010). He said I can have it for free! I said, "hell yea!" and that I will come and get it ASAP. I'm kinda bragging here, because normally, stuff like this doesn't happen to me.

    I was thinking squeezing limes into my Corona's?
    What do you guys use them for?

    Cashews come inside a fruit, actually. The fruit itself is eaten in places like Hawaii and Thailand, and tastes a bit like the nut.

    As for the press, lots of cool bending and pressing operations. If it was rated for 6 more tons, you could sing Tennessee Ernie Ford songs along with it.

    Cashews are injected into a cashew mold. They are made from several kinds of peanuts. True story!!!

    never understood the lime in a Corona thing. I thought that had gone out of fashion in the 90's, but I ordered a Corona with dinner the other night and they brought me a lime without even asking. :confused:

    I would use it to crush my MGD cans. get twice as many in the barrel before I take them to the recyclers.

    free tools is always good.

  12. My "world traveler" buddy showed me a picture of what a cashew looks like before they hand pick it (that's why they are so spendy) - they look nasty, but taste so good.....

    You can start your own Mafioso and use it to give your enemies nicknames like Fingers and Lefty... Or you can use it to smash Hotwheels that you don't really like and put them in a diarama of a car crash...
