"Thanks is a fantastic book. It’s what I need. I read
the alignement article its fantastic. Today I made the alignment of the press using the method of cable, Kennedy's
book , and has improved extrusion and ram movement back furthermore the pressure into auxiliar cylinders and container is
less. I suppose that contact between container liner and ram (dummy) is less." Francisco Damian Lorenzo

I have read your Extrusion Maintenance Program from the net and find it very helpful for my type
of job. Can I request a copy of these files [maintenance schedules]? Efren Gonzales, Doha, Qatar
I have purchased your precious book “The Extrusion Press Maintenance
