  • Hydraulic Press to Break Motor Stators and Transformers

    Hello Everyone, Just wanted to see if anyone has tried to use a hydraulic press (manual crank) to break/crack/split cast aluminum motor stators/housings or to break transformers. It is easy enough to use a grinder to cut these up, but was wanting to establish a more efficient process for the long term. I've seen Project Shop on youtube use a pneumatic press to break transformers, but don't get enough to justify the expense. Whereas a few hundred dollars to buy a manual press is fine. I appreciate your thoughts. Thanks
