JKilbreth, I just checked mine out. It too would not rotate by hand. I used a flat bladed screwdriver inserted into the slot in the front of the ram where the primer toggle would go, and it rotated readily with very little force. I'm glad I tuned in and viewed that little video. I didn't even know that the ram rotated like that, and I've had that press probably 10 years or more.

I just fixed an annoying problem.

Thanks guys.
The screwdriver idea worked perfectly! Can't believe I never thought of just getting some leverage!

I posted a response video on YouTube if anyone wants to check it out:

Many thanks to all!

It pleases me to see it working for you. I can imagine your frustration level. Take the piece of duc tape and mount it on the wall behind your press for future amusement.
