Here you can see photographs and hear memories of Wheel Presses made by Fielding and Platt.
Wheel Presses used hydraulic pressure to force wheels onto their axle. They were used extensively in Railway Workshops.
If you remember designing, machining, fitting, installing or maintaining any of the presses here please share your memories of working on them. You can do this by clicking on the machine you worked on, scrolling to the bottom of the page and clicking on the words Add a comment about this page.
