    I have this Hollywood press.............

    ..........that I inherited a number of years ago. It's an iron Universal turret in what appears to be new, unused condition. I base that on perfect black wrinkle paint, clean machined surfaces, no marks from any shell holders or dies, etc. It has two primer seating punches for the old concave primers. The punches DO appear to be used, but I doubt in this machine. Looks like they were added later.

    Here's the rub. I've had this thing sitting in a corner for years now, just like my old mentor did (I think he picked it up at a gun show in the past). I mounted it to my bench and tried to love it, honest! However the upstroke motion just leaves me cold, so I've decided to part with it.

    Now comes the embarrassing part.......I've always hated guys that join a forum just to ask "what's it worth?" only to never be heard from again. However I'm asking for an honest estimate in order to come up with a value. I won't sell it on Ebay......too much hassle. Not offering to sell, just want an estimate.

    Thanks guys for your help.

    We cannot give you a value w/o viewing it, as your description is vague. Please post a pic or two.
