'Power press' means a press or press brake for the working of metal by means of tools, or for die proving, which is power driven and which embodies a flywheel and clutch4. The following types of power presses are, however, excluded from the requirements of that particular provision5:
(1) a power press for the working of hot metal6;
(2) a power press not capable of a stroke greater than 6
