    Sizer dies for Herters/ Weseca lube sizer?

    Do the saeco/Redding dies fit, look very similar? Thanks, hc18flyer

    Herter's offered different lubesizers at different times, I had one that used Lyman dies. I know they also offered one that used dies that were similar to Saeco, but I recall they were different enough to not be interchangeable.

    Mine uses the lyman dies. Has a small thumb screw in the front to lock the die in the casting.

    Can you post a picture of the sizer?

    Excuse the beat up old bench. Herters sizer purchased about 1976, currently setup with a .4515 die

    The original thumb screw to hold the die in has been replaced with a socket head screw, but the one for the nose punch is stil original.

    I have a herters M 49 which uses dies similar to saeco -- saeco dies will fit but the lock nut on herters dies are smaller dia.
    saeco is about 7/8" thread, herters is about 3/4" thread --
    I think saeco could be made to work by drilling/threading for a set screw as lyman/rcbs -

    I have the same sizer as the above picture and both Lyman & RCBS dies work in it.
