Palmgren AP-10 press

Recommended Posts

This is my first post and hope I’m doing it right.  I removed the 2 teeth from the ram like a lot of YouTube videos suggest.  The issue I have is the  ram wobbles like crazy.  The ram action is not smooth at all.  Could removing the 2 teeth on this press be harmful?  If so where can I get a good replacement ram? Thanks for your help...Joe

Thanks for responding.  Haven’t really done anything special.  I added set screw to ram and filed off two teeth.  Removed wheel and added collar to left side press.  Added  longer handle.  Is there supposed to be a spring like plate behind the ram face plate. The manual doesn’t show one.

The 2 bolts in the front cover are used to adjust the amount of slop forward and backward on the ram.  Need to tighten enough to remove the slop, but not so much to lock the ram making it difficult to move the ram.
