The wedge is set a half inch too close. The ram hits it every time and goes "PING".

needs a little work good idea i like it he does need a lab to go fetch the parts when they go flying an hdpe cushon at the bottom of the ram would be a lot better that or a blow off hole so the ram dosn't slam in to the end
