Press Brake Ram Guide

Pokie Parmidge December 2004

Problem - After years of abuse by industry, the ram guide on this Whitney-Jensen press brake broke. To make the old press usable again a new ram guide was needed. The age of the press made buying a new guide out of the question, the only way to save the old machine was to make a new guide from scratch.

The broken ram guide.


The new ram guide finished and ready for fitting to the ram of the press brake. I made the new ram guide from scratch starting with just a lump of raw cast iron.


The new guide bolted to the press brake ram, adjusted and ready for action.
