    When I was in trade school we had two 13" Bridgeport gear driven lathes. They had nylon gears. I hated them. Given the choice I always used either the Bridgeport belt lathes, or the big 17" Bridgeport. Only thing with the 17 was, it had no emergency...

    Because chics dig it. I always wanted to, and when my best friend's wife made him sell everything she deemed to be "in the way", I got his equipment for $50.00. That was all it took. Sent from my VS880 using Tapatalk

    I got a responce. Jim: You are correct that we have a new progressive press in the works. It will be a 4 station press that you will be able to customize to be as progressive as you would like. The priming system is similar to the single...

    That would be easy with a regular metal lathe. Probably take ten minutes to groove 15-20 dies once it's set up. Sent from my VS880 using Tapatalk

    I have some handles with an extra set of holes. They were a gift. I think you can drill a second set. I think Lee six cavity handles will fit them too. Sent from my VS880 using Tapatalk

    It wouldn't hurt to put a groove on the bottom of a piece of round stock, and test it. If it worked, you could add grooves to the bottom of your sizing dies and use O-rings on both ends. You might be able to make a press in bushing to seal it...
