Need help taking apart a Pilot press.

Hi! I have been busy taking apart a very rusty C&P Pilot press. I was wondering if anyone had advice on removing the platen bolts?

Please could you post some pictures? Do you mean the bolts to adjust the platen height?


I would be happy to help you with the disassembly of your Pilot press. Give me a call 651-730-0986 CST I will walk/talk you through the process.

If you are concerned that the bolts are just too rusted I would soak them in some form of penetrating oil (kroil, pb blaster, liquid wrench…)
