Re: New owner of Hymac 580B

Andy; firstly yes they can be turned down to fit just make sure you get a nice interference fit; when I get up to my machine I will measure the bushes on it and on the newly reconditioned rams that I intend to fit, the problem that I have is that the part where the pins fit into the actual frame loo...

Re: New owner of Hymac 580B
