Default It's Christmas - new nut cracker for the garage!

OK, its not new, but new to me. My favorite kind of tool, vintage! It's a Dake model 0 arbor press, 1 1/2 ton. Dake started making these in 1945 when they bought the Atlas press company out of Kalamazoo. Not sure how old this one is, the new ones look very similar but they are painted black. It's in great shape, no play. I've got a swivel plate on the way to complete it. The ram is also drilled for punches with an Allen retaining bolt. It's a nice little setup.
