bench presses to the neck seem to give me a good pump in my upper chest just be careful and control the weight

peck deck, i use a reverse(palms facing you) dumb bell shoulder press ok
raise the weight palms away from you, lower the weight turning your palms inward then touching the weights togeather in the middle , you can feel it if you just pratice w/ no weights

i dont know what your situation is like, at home or a club, but if you dont have a movable bench you could do push ups with your feet resting on your bench and your hands on the floor. i do a set of these for warm up before i do incline bench, it seem to hit the upper pec

Flyes just below the neck with full contraction. Also helps me when I rotate thumbs inward on the eccentric and squeeze em together at the top of the movement. Just the opposite for lower pecs... pinkies together pressing just below the breast bone.

I totally agree with what llbeastcd said, that is an easy way to work upper and lower chest. There are a lot of good suggestions also said that I hadn't thought of before. As far as doing some work for the upper chest, you realize that only a slight angle is needed to work upper chest, right? Most gyms have an angle that is more than necessary. Recent scientific studies are showing that a very small increase on the top portion of the bench will be as much or more beneficial for working the chest. Maybe you could find a way to add a board under one side of it.
