Designed to give lasting trouble free service , the Ram & mating Pinion are manufactured in high tensile steel with machine cut teeth to ensure full tooth surface with a central accurately aligned to the center in the ram itself.
The ram can be fitted with adjustable depth stops and slide way gib adjustment.
