    I didn't really modify one. Mine is a old used Dake (made in USA) that I got at a scrap iron yard, I cleaned it up and since it came without a Anvil plate, I made a custom Anvil from two 3/8 steel plates, to hold a FCIII gas check die.

    DukeInFlorida replied to a thread Swage-O-Matic Specs in Swaging
    Mine is also put away at the moment. However, you have the mating threads that you can measure. It's really a simple design, so it would be difficult to mess anything up. I'm not so sure that anyone would ever have taken the time to completely...

    I totally agree. and I'll add, a deformed boolit will still be accurate enough at short range. But once you start shooting past 25 yards the poor accuracy will be obvious.

    If this happened to me, and this new dealer was remorseful as you said, I'd take the full refund and not accept the holster. Then I'd remove the FB post if he requested that. I'd probably still go to this fella's shop, but would be leery about...

    I haven't investigated the bottom of the Lee pot for a bottom mounted TC, but I would think it would be thin enough for mounting via a "through hole", with a nut on the inside. I wouldn't trust any JB weld or epoxy, unless it was rated for 1000...

    nah, that's the 50 cal (C501-440RF). When you look at the cavity size in comparison to the block size, it's difficult to imagine those blocks could be used with a larger pair of boolits...I wish Lee would have either made a single cavity, or used...
