I made this press out of an old bed frame, 3/4 threaded rod, the base is like a turntable so I can line up my rings. Was having difficulty glueing with clamps and aligning my segments. This seems to do the trick.

Nice. I made one similar using unistrut. It works great. But, man it sure takes up a lot of room in the shop.
