Shop Press?

I was thinking of getting one of those low-end
(e.g. Harbor Freight or Homier) 20-ton shop presses,
the kind that are built around a big bottle jack
and a steel frame.

Are those worth owning, or will they just
start bending or breaking if you try to get a
full 20 tons out of them?

I am restoring a Ford Model A, and I would need a
press for things like straightening a bent axle,
swedging new wheel studs, etc.
