ID:	66231Promised I would get some pictures of this. Took a little bit of figuring to get it to work with the standard punches (shell holder style) and the modified punches (screw in). This is what I am going to offer for sale so far.

    1. U.P. North Swage and Reloading Press. Makes swaging less of a chore and with fine Precision.

    2. The Auto-Ejector System. Eject the Swaged projectile on the down stroke. This will work with the rockchucker press and other presses with a 1" ram.

    3. Conversion Kit for CH-4D dies. Works with the factory stock dies(shell holder style punches) and the modified ones(threaded punches).

    4. Both the Standard and Screw in Punches. These will be offered two ways (your choice), but both will me made of tool steel.

    Wow, that is a very large press! Looks great. If you could get some close-up photos it would help.

    Soon as I get some extra money I will be getting a press from you! Gotta sell some receivers and parts first when I get back.

    What caliber molds you plan to offer?

    BTW, maybe this thread should be made a sticky if you plan to keep offering stuff.

    I have the prototype press that UP made and it is a beast of brilliance. I swagged some 44 boolits down with ease and did some heavy sizing with no sign of stress on myself or the press.

    Not a very good deer season here in the U.P. . Out of four people hunting one spike horn shot (and not by me). Well guess I will get to go out with the muzzleloader this year. Or maybe try the late season ruffed grouse hunt (I am leaning more towards this). Got a .444 diameter point forming die cut today(for a blackpowder cartridge gun paper patched) and it turned out very well. Time to heat treat and lap it. I will keep you all posted on the die progress.

    Tim has been very good about responding to emails and PM's. Initially (4/28) his phase convertor went out. 7/13 - should ship this week 9/26 - will ship Friday
    11/28 - UPS delivered to wrong address. Was dropped and damaged.

    Tim is going to send me the one out of his completed press. Should have it by next week an all will be good.

    I am not complaining about taking so long. Things happen out of our control that delay things. I am use to waiting on parts as I do a lot of one off parts, custom barrels, swaging dies, and NFA stamps.

    sounds good, and I'm glad it's all working out.

    I'm the one that usually has all that bad luck. Glad someone else took over the Bad Luck Department.

    I might be needing a swaging press at some point when my RockChucker stops doing what I need it to do.

    I am not a person that likes excuses, but when things happen out of our control I am very sorry. I have been putting alot of effort into this and hopefully it will pay off. I have got a optical comparator I picked up a month ago which really helps in the making of form tools and laps. I have been checking on a few machines to help the process out, but at the current sales rate getting them are a ways yet. Materials keep going up and up so in the end we all suffer on that. The core molds if you guys could give me the sizes needed, I could make them at a good price.

    I would be interested in one at .218 if the price is right.

    I want to say that I've dealt with all types of machinery from pistols to tanks and artillery pieces my entire adult life, and I'm familiar with fabrication methods and can recognize quality work when I see it. Tim does top rate work IMHO, and I can heartily recommend him!

    If anyone here has been sitting on the fence, it's time to fish or cut bait! This press is a massive machine, and should be easily capable of anything that a hand-operated press should be used for.

    Just figured I would post some of the feedback I have received.
    I am finishing a press and dies for a fellow member on the forum.
