the other small issue is the threaded ram arm keeps loosening. I think I will try some Lock tight thread locker...
If you are referring to the handle, it is easy to tighten down. There is a hole in the handle shaft. I place a philips tip screw driver in mine then tighten the nut. It works well for me. I use the original ball handle and that hole provides me a way to be able to really crank it down if needed.
