    Chris, I don't think they did much big hole drilling either and I thought water soluble oil and water would be hard to beat for cooling and lubrication both in cost and effectiveness. I also see our tombstone is designed with a pretty good...

    I think you have an error. You have the Lee 205 90775 listed as a 309 mold. I think that one is an 8 mm , .329 dia. mold ? ? Ben

    Chris, That's real good advice. The fellow who ran it for the county said he did not use it because of the mess. They used some stuff from an aerosol can ... the empty can is on the tombstone. I don't think that would very economical. But...

    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, 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...
