View Full Version : RCBS lube/sizer tip

Here is a little tip some of you may find helpful. Go to sears and get your self a 12 point, 12 x 13 metric, flat ratchet wrench. On the lubricator's feed screw file a very slight taper from the turrning rod to the top of the feed screw. Using the 12 mm wrench, center it on the top and tap lightly with a hammer.

The hardened steel of the wrench will engrave into the softer feed screw. Now you have a ratchet type handle like on a Lyman. Make sure you have the wrench set for counter clockwize as it can be hard to remove the first couple of times.

I have found this to cut down on the time I spend sizing by not having to switch hands to turn the feed screw. It's always in to position that works best for you.

wcshooter---RCBS sent me a ratchet and a new feed screw to modify mine. My gunsmith/machinist friend milled a hex to fit the ratchet. He milled it right below the holoe the toggle goes through. You are correct it stays in the correct posistion and is light years better than the toggle.
