    a few items from my Herters collection




    I got some of these items from a local fellow, that purchase started my reloading hobby, as well as my Herters collecting hobby. I got the homemade funnel from him...that thing is priceless.

    Another Ideal #1
    This has been repaired by a bubba, but I'll be danged, he did so in a way to maintain as perfect alignment as my best lubesizer...it's so ugly, it's tough not to love it.

    I posted this in another thread, but I think this is a better spot...

    Picked up a Texan Reloader... I have no idea if there's a model number for this... Anyone know anything about this?? In spite of some surface rust, it's tight and smooth... Haven't used it yet, but expect it will be an excellent press...

    Hey Jon did you take a pic of my Herter's scale and trickler?. I ordered mine from them in 1965. I use it 99.5 % of the time over the others I have including a older RCBS 10 10. I was at a match a couple years ago with a old guy from your neck of the woods in the Twin Cities area, well actually 2 years older than me. First shot of the day locked his bolt and took the primer pocket out. After he got that one beat out he touched #2 off and same thing. Long story short red on chrome is not good for old eyes. He was one notch heavy on the scale. That night he was busy drinking beer and pulling bullets with a impact puller and dumping the powder into a Styrofoam cup from the coffee maker in his room. When he told me I knew exactly what happened and since then I have my wife take a pen light and double check me every time. He had power spilled all over and it sounded like woodpeckers invaded the motel until the owner came out and put a stop to it. Some how I have a feeling a book could be written about reloading at night while away from home. Herters had some good stuff dirt cheap.

    I have the same Herter's scale that I ordered from them in 1959. I use it all the time. I love that simple little piece of bent metal that stops the beam from moving. I have an RCBS # 5-10 & 10-10 but I only use them to weigh bullets over 350 grains because that is the heaviest the Herter's will weigh. I also have Redding & Lyman beam scales.

    Great find! You have a Texan Model 101 -T, later on they changed the base to a wider, more stable one called the Model 101 - T II (2). Some literature printed 101 - T II and later some printed 101 - T 11 (eleven). It appears that the printer made an error and hit the #1 key twice instead of the Capital i twice. I'm not sure if Texan just left it alone and called it the 101 T eleven going forward, or kept the older designation of 101 T 2 with confusion?

    In my photo below, the 101- T 2 is on the right.

    Yes, you have a Texan 101 -T. Some were indeed red, including other presses in their line as well.

    That sure is a nice prize you have there Ken. That's a unicorn I've been hunting since you first sent me that same/similar pic years ago.

    Cougar & Hunter Micro Pistol Master inline press

    This is an uncommon one. From my research only about 250 were ever made and sold in the late 70's by Cougar & Hunter, Flushing Michigan. Apparently they were a sub contractor for CH making parts for the CH Auto Champ. They figured they could make a cheaper and better version so they manufactured these. If anyone can add to the story please chime in. I purchased this from the original owner and it came to me with CH .38/.357 dies but also came with the .45ACP and 9mm conversions. It had sat in his workshop for several years forgotten. Note the price on the manual. That was a lot of money in 1978. After cleaning up the tool, it functions very well and produces a nice loaded round. It's quite small and compact and the best part is that it came to me complete.
    Second pic is from the seller and this is how it looked when I received it. Note the powder magazine that I have since replaced with a polycarbonate piece. I couldn't do anything with the original decal on the powder magazine so I improvised. Third pic is of the conversion/spare parts that came with the tool and last pic is of the tool cleaned up and ready to go.

    This is an impressive find. It's 38 years old so the owner still possessed all the pieces and remembered all the details. I Googled the value of $595 in today's dollars and found the purchase price is now $1000 - $1047. Fantastic clean up job. This is a piece of equipment to be proud of.
