What's the ram size on the HF 12 ton press? 1 inch right? Just double checking.

I have the Homier version of the HF 12 ton press, and even though the ram is 1 inch, I had to grind down the casting marks first to get the barrel pin press adaptor to fit. Quality Chinese craftsmanship there.

No, he's just saying he had to grind the "Flash" off to get his kit to fit the ram.

Jinxx knows what Im talking about...When the part is cast a small amount of the metal flows into the crack where the two parts of the mold meet. Most manufacturers will grind down this metal and smooth out the cast part...not so with the one i got. It has these 2 ridges on either side of the ram that I had to grind off before the adapter would fit....Go with the standard 1 inch version....just understand a small amount of grinding may be in your future.

[quote="Tx Dogblaster":k1y7h8ti]I believe you are correct.

I think the 20 ton model is 1 1/4"
No, the 20 ton is 1 1/2" had to go to my local HF to be sure.[/quote:k1y7h8ti]

I stand corrected...

Damn that's the 1st time I've EVER been wrong about ANYTHING. I hope it's the last... :lol:
