    I have finally got Into a Larger Bowl now,  with 36 Segments to a row,  But I have Not needed a press to this point to assemble stuff under 8-inches in diameter.  I am finding Now with this !2-1/4" diameter rows I need to build some type of a LOW BUDGET Press  to be able to assemble and align my Rows?  Hoping you Folks have a remedy for to follow with the least amount of expense.  I do have some 3/4" All Thread Rod and plenty of construction 2x6 and 2x8's.  small amount of box store plywood and thats about it.  Any Help is Greatly Appreciated .

Here is what I use.  If you have the clamps its cheap....
Pipe flange on bottom of boards hold the pipes, easy to adjust.

Not a Bad Idea at all.   I only have one at the moment, but,  They're  not a cost breaker either.

   After seeing what you guys shared with me I looked around and found some stuff to build one with and this is what I came up with.  LVI beam I think they call it, and 3/4" x 6 TPI Rod, and just threw this one together. Comments are Welcomed.
  Well I was trying to show it, I resized the photos, Now it says I have to reselect the attachment again in the Browser Box for security, but I don't know what that means.  Sorry.
  I appreciate your posts guys.

that should do a great job. my biggest problem is keeping the rings from shifting as i tighten down. i get around this by dry fitting the ring and using hot melt glue and 3 or 4 scrap blocks with index marks to "hold" the ring in place while the glue sets, then pry the "assist" blocks off with a putty knife. i use thinner blocks then the ring for obvious reasons.

I understand the shifting. But I didn’t show the 4 slotted blocks for each corner that get tightened against the lower ring and screwed down.
