The Ram:






Back on the welding table again. I had a supply of 1/4" x 3" scrap brass flat bar so I used some of it to make guides which, optimistically, would reduce ram friction when heavily greased. When all the ram parts were cut and fitted I glued the brass to the ram faces and welded short keepers above and below to hold the brass in place under load.
