    Chris, Thanks again and for the pics! Your point is well taken about even a 5 hp motor geared down and the devastating results if things go wrong. My order of priority will be people, the press and tooling ......... and in our line of work...

    Chris, You are likely right on bit size ......... the largest size twist drill in the cut down apple bin of bits was 2 7/8" and the scale on the run of the machine ends at 3". I also understand the reality of boring larger holes and needing to...

    I like my RCBS hand held tool that uses regular shell holders .... the holder does have to be of the newer manufacture ........ you can tell if it's the right one if it has the bevel on the underside of it where the new primer rises through it. I...

    It sounds like you made a great find. I also understand you are happy with the trigger ..... 2.5# is nothing to sneeze at if it's crisp. But just for point of reference if it's a three screw or the older four screw, you can set the creep to make...

    Chris, Thanks for the kind words on the state of the purchase. I felt pretty good about it after the biding was over and very good as it sits on our "turf" safe and in one piece. I have to confess, I took several pics on the trailer as it...

    Chris, I did put the press in our hay barn but was not planning on running it there. First, there is no power so I'd have rig up our 3ph generator. Second, we'd have to rig up some sort of temporary base to mount it on and all of that would...

    Chris, I googled the mounts you referenced and they certainly look viable. So I assume that would preclude a solid tie down of the press? Is it viable to drill or line bore with the drill when it's not directly over the base when the work...

    I have the Hornady LNL, a Dillon 550 and a Dillon 650. I agree that the priming system on the LNL needs attention sometimes but it still cranks out ammo at a respectable pace. On the upside the Hornady case activated powder system is the absolute...
