Ram Rod Pipe Holder
« on: May 03, 2023, 09:36:31 PM »
I made this ram rod holder so that I can easily hold the ram rod pipes while I clean up the flats. It is not my idea, I just borrowed it from someone else I forgot who. I made one out of brass and one out of steel no particular reason. It is 3/8 inches in diameter and about 4 inches long. It is drilled and tapped for an 8-32 screw that is 1-3/8 inches long. The front section is drilled for a clearance hole one drill size larger than the normal clearance hole for a #8 screw to allow for movement of the forward section when tightening. It is held in a vise as you see here and rotated to the next flat position when one flat is completed. I find it works very well for me and it just might work for you also enjoy.
