    Lyman MAG 25 Broke

    My Mag 25 started dripping around the nozzle. Lyman said they couldn't fix it but for 175.00 they would send me a new one. Glad I kept my six Lee pots

    Wow, really a leak in the weld around the nozzle... not just a drippy nozzle. They will not send a replacement pot? That is a black eye for them.

    I was once considering buying one but got a Master Caster instead. Not very good support from Lyman. Hope you new one works out better for you. I would try to fix it. Maybe a good welder could do it. Then sell the new one.

    This is the Lyman I know. I had heard good things about them recently. It looks like they're slipping again.

    Its Chinese made. We need a few other mag 25 owners to look at their nozzles and tell us if they see welds or metal puddy around their nozzles

    That's lead dripping out took me by surprise thought the PID unit would go first. They should have how to make the pot down pat after all these years. Won't being getting another one but it was fun while it lasted. Some of my Lee pots are 30 years old and still going, but they are China pots too.

    The MAG 25 only has 1year warranty and no spare parts in US.
