Machine maintenance is vital to the longevity of any manual press. But, a machine that requires as little maintenance as possible is the best option. You don’t want to have to constantly be breaking down a machine to work on it. One key factor is the kind of parts that go into building the press itself. At Antec, our Legend is an all bearing construction. These bearings are designed to last a lifetime! Minimal maintenance is required on the Legend as you can see by the video. We wanted to build a press that last 30 years plus! So when you are looking to invest in a press, really take a close look at what is required to maintain it. Ask the company to let you talk with current press owners to get their direct feedback! It will save you a ton of time and aggravation later!
