Foot Press Conversion
We often have people ask us how to convert their table snap press to a foot kick press! So here are some brief instructions and a shopping list for you to create it yourself!
Often people have the items needed already around the garage/shed, and you can use things like old desks, stools or tables to save building the full table. Just keep in mind it's best to be about 90cm high to keep you from needing the bend over.
Also please note the handle will be facing away from you. so you are likely to be building it from the back.
