WARNING: Machine tools present a safety hazard. Improper operation can result in severe injury. These topics are for non-laboratory study only and are not to be used in conjunction with the operation of any tool or machine described herein. Never use a machine tool without the supervision of a qualified instructor.
The ram can be moved in or out atop the turret to accommodate difficult to reach positions or to increase the rigidity of the machine by moving the head further in towards the column.

To move the ram loosen the two gib bolts. Crank the ram forward or backward with the crank handle. Re-tighten the gib bolts.
