    Default one arm squeegee holder

    I've had this one arm press for a while, i got it about 8 years ago and when i finally got around to using the arm i realized i didn't have the right piece that holds the squeegee in place. The attachment i have has two bolts that are suppose to go through the arm, the arm i have did not match so I drilled a couple holes into it. Now i want to move the holder but i don't want to drill more holes into the arm. I have not found anywhere to buy a new holder I wanted to ask if anyone here knows where to get an attachment that works with this arm.

    In my experience with these, it has two pressure bolts where you've put two fly nuts. See on the arm where you have rust marks going to the back of the press? Those little circle marks? Those were left from the pressure bolts that were threaded through the holes.



    You can grab these from here, but you need to measure the threaded bolt holes before you buy anything.

    2 short regular bolts would work too. Add a nut to each to use as a lock nut. You would need to use a set of wrenches to loosen and tighten. Nicholas' bolt with knob eliminates the need for wrenches, but you don't want a bolt with a 'foot' it needs to be flat where it contacts the arm.

    this is assuming the nut welded to the top of the holder mechanism (where your wing nuts are) are not stripped. if they are, take it to someone who can cut off the old nuts (or drill them out) then weld new nuts on the top that match your new pinch bolts.

    That's a good design, with the masterframe.
