    hand turning a drill bit in a press would cut it out too. 5 minutes with a dowell and some sand paper, some lapping compound, your pocket knife, whatever you got. the worst that could happen is you make it a little too big and have to size it down...

    But who makes a new cast iron or steel C press?? Like I said I do not need a press, just thinking one of the old c presses would be handy for some things. If I needed a single stage press, I would probably go with the lee classic cast.

    Ah, missed the window, that just sucks. I actually lost one once, I started up a steep hill on an old logging road and it just rolled out the back, it hit on it's wheels so no damage to either truck or wheeler.
