I have been quietly gleaning knowledge for quite some time now
and am really grateful to everyone responsible for this forum and
for all the that is shared. I have a question that I
would appreciate some help with.
I am considering purchasing a new hydraulic press, but the two I
saw have rough surfaces around the top part of the ram part way
down from the top and a few nicks that can be seen and felt with
my fingernail. My understanding has always been that the ram
should have a smooth polished surface. Question : Will this
eventually cause damage to the seal and make it leak. The
seller claims that the finish on the ram won’t make a difference
if it is smooth or rough or even threaded.
Any advice would be greatly appreciated. I wouldn’t want to be
stuck with a leaking press after the 1 year warranty expires.
