I do use a 1 tom arbor press quite a bit. I use it for folding with my steel starter cone and universal folding mandrel and also for the Swede dies and future bell tools.
I use the arbor press more than my hydraulic press but I do have a lot of upper body strength that I rely on for the larger coins. Durston is working on a handle extension for his ring stretcher reducer that will increase the power of the rings stretcher. I make Morgans solely with my Durston stretcher/reducer now.
I would start out with a 1 ton arbor press. I rarely use a hydraulic press. Only if I am making a ring from a very thick bronze coin or damascus steel. I use a 1 ton arbor for folding a coin and for swede die work. I use Durston with a handle extension for reducing most coins including the big Morgans.
