    Swage press II

    Been watching a lot of YouTube about swaging, reloading, and machining. I've seen people make vices, lathe compounds, lathe and milling components but not a lot of swaging dies or swaging press, not the huge welded behemoth's like up north's, walnut hills, D. Corbin's or even the swage press like the one in the stickies. Just a milled one like Blackmon's or Smith's or one of the original cast ones like the Corbin's. Just a random thought. I emailed a YouTube super star machinist about swaging dies and his response was rather weak and very standoffish.

    One could always downsize Aneat's castboolits press.

    Corbin's S2 press has a lot of ability. Could be reproduced with a bandsaw, lathe, welder and drill press.
    I recently bought an old but hardly used Redding press at a gunshow for 60 dollars. The link pin has two positions, and the press is a "C" frame but it's husky enough for swaging. Giving some thought to building an auto eject with on rigid bar that slides on the priming arm pin.
    To lazy to chase arrows.
