    Hello all. This is a public service announcement. My housemate just got an e-mail saying the hoses on her recently purchased press has inadequately rated hoses and they are sending replacements and a how-to replace them.

    If you've purchased a Coal Ironworks Press recently, you might want to check to see if your press is affected.

    Any idea on how recent? I've got an 18 month old 25 ton from them.

    No idea, which is why I decided to post this as a caution to others. Ours is also a 25 ton and we've had it for about 6 months now.
    They've been pretty good about communicating, so it shouldn't be a problem asking them directly.
