Does the high cost of razors have you adopting the hipster look and growing a beard as gnarly as James Harden’s?

Does the lack of Johnson Press parts have you considering using a circular saw instead of a punch press to create holes in a workpiece?

Don’t fret.

LeBlond has you covered with affordable Johnson Press parts along with OEM parts for LeBlond, K.O. Lee, Standard Modern, Deka Drill and W.F. & John Barnes equipment.

A punch press is a manual and CNC-controlled machine that cuts holes in a material by using a simple die set composed of a male punch and a female die. When pressed together, the pair form a hole in a piece.

Johnson Press makes mechanical punch presses from as light as 16-ton to as heavy as 350-ton. Johnson Press manufacturing ceased in 2002 but LeBlond still provides parts for this line.

Manufacturers use Johnson Presses to cut holes in parts made from any ferrous metal and even plastic.

For more information on the history of Johnson Press, please see this page on our website.

To recap the early days:

Early presses were light tonnage O.B.I. (open back inclinable) in the 16 to 60 ton range and were manufactured exclusively with a mechanical pin type clutch.  O.B.I. presses in sizes to 90 ton capacity were added in the late 1940’s. In the early 1950’s, air clutches were offered on Johnson presses and in 1953, the 116 ton capacity Model 10 press was introduced with an air clutch as standard equipment.  Also a flywheel or back geared drive was made available. In 1955, heavy duty tie rod constructed straight side and gap presses were added.

A common Johnson Press part is a ball seat that fits under the ball screw in the ram.

Another popular JP part is a lock bolt and bolt spring used in the pin clutch.

Johnson Press parts are not like razor blades. You don’t have to grow a beard like James Harden nor do you have to pick up a hammer and blade to create a hole in a workpiece.
