Not really a loading error, but... was pulling the ram out of my rock chucker for a cleaning and re greasing. Loosened the screw in the bottom holding the pin in place, pulled the pin and... forgot to catch the ram as it came out of the bottom of the press. It landed square on the loosened screw with enough force to deform the threads. Had to drill and tap the ram with a larger screw before I could use the press again. The old screw now sits in a jar on the shelf as a reminder.
