    Hydraulic press ejector

    Hey,
    So I got this little project for a hydraulic garbage press we have at work. Occasionally, garbage
    will clog the machine up and we need a way to get it all out. In the past we have used a log of wood but I thought this is a more bulletproof solution. I have it all tacked up and was after opinions on the best way to weld it with minimal distortion. The top and bottom plates are 9" square, the pipe is 3 1/2" by 1/4"and 20" long and the gussets are 1/4" thick. The whole piece weighs in at about 25 pounds.

    here are some pics

    Just weld it up, its not going to distort much at all since all the welds are symmetrical.
    Have we all gone mad?

    I am still trying to figure out how it works. Does the press compact the trash down into a mold? Then the machine spits it out sideways?
    Or does it compress the garbage left to right? I just can't see it in my head.

    Picture a T shape press. You load rubbish in the long part of the T and it compresses it into the short part of the T and then ejects the rubbish. Typically about 50 pounds or so is ejected and the press has roughly 13 tonnes of pressure at the ejector end.
