actually... they no longer stock the parts I need as it is a older press. Just wonderi9ng is anybody here has tried putting riley hopkins parts on a older hopkins press? Are the parts interchangeable? They look really similar online but I don't want to spent the money to but a complete head if it does not fit.

How old is your press??? I have a REALLY old Hopkins International & Chris said they have all the parts unless it was the original casting of the print head. All bolts and stuff are readily available. If it ever breaks a print head, I'll have to upgrade to the newer style. I saw the newer Riley Hopkins heads are almost the spitting image of mine and was wondering the same thing. They are 1/10th of the price compared to BWM-Hopkins....

i have a old 6 and 4 hopkins and a workhorse mach 8 and 8 that im building and there are a lot of parts that are interchangeable. the heads are almost identical and the center shaft and bearings are the same. i needed to fab a bracket for the mach to hold a hopkins head but everything lined up. look for old workhorse parts. they seem to be a bit more obtainable.

Hi savage

I’m attempting to upgrade a 6/1 workhorse to 6/4 and wanted to know where you are obtaining parts?
