    Disassembly of the new style Lee bullet molds

    The old molds were quite easy to disassemble but the new style have ,what looks to be, allen head set screws. Anyone know what is required to remove these?

    These look like allen head set screws but are actually a helical cut pin, pressed in, and into a blind hole none the less. The only trick is to locate the blind end of the other side, drill it through and knock the pressed in pins out. Really not a horrible task but you might end up drilling/tapping the blocks to take another arrangement to "pin" the blocks back on the handles afterwards.

    After you beat it enough to try to get the bullet to drop, the pin just falls out. Ugh.
