Would the Harbor Freight 6-ton Press work for AK builds ?

yes and no LOL

it will work but its alittle short so it makes it alot harder
its worth it to get the 12 ton

I have had both. In some ways I actually liked the 6-ton A Fram better than the 12 ton H press.

However, as Socandyman said it is too short to press barrels out with by default. I have a workbench with a hole in the middle of it (so that my miter saw sits flush with the table top) by putting the 6 ton press where my miter saw is normally it worked great as the barrel could hang down through the table, past the bottom of the press.

So yes it will work, but you also have to engineer things a bit.
