    Who sells one for $10.00?

    The reviews show that several people adapted this to other press handles, including RCBS and Lyman.

    I've been happy with my RC IV

    This is an interesting read --
    THE HISTORY OF HANDLOADING: NOT JUST A FAD ANYMORE

    RCBS WAS FOUNDED FROM A HOBBY BY FRED T. HUNTINGTON IN 1943 IN OROVILLE, CA
    RCBS was founded in 1943 by Fred T. Huntington in Oroville, California. Huntington was a dedicated shooter, but found it difficult to obtain quality varmint bullets. However, after reading about making a die to swage .22 rimfire cartridge cases to form jackets for bullets, he began to craft his own dies in the back room of his father’s Oroville laundry and dry-cleaning business. Because the resulting bullets were used to shoot rock chucks – a varmint of Western North America – he named them Rock Chuck Bullet Swage dies, later shortened to RCBS.

    RCBS soon outgrew this modest beginning in the back of a laundromat, and by 1948 Huntington relocated to a small shop. The business continued to grow rapidly, spilling into his garage and then a new building in 1954. By 1958, RCBS was expanding again, first to a 7,500-square-foot factory that quickly grew to 50,000 square feet. As the years passed, more expansions have occurred, but RCBS stayed near its roots. Today, Oroville is still RCBS’ home for state-of-the-art production.

    RCBS was acquired by Omark Industries in July 1976 and became part of the Sporting Equipment Division. In 1985, Omark Industries was purchased by Blount, Inc. Alliant Techsystems (ATK) purchased RCBS in 2001. In 2015, Vista Outdoor Inc. spun-off from ATK as a leading provider of outdoor sports and recreation products. And while RCBS no longer manufactures bullet-swaging dies, we are the leading manufacturer of ammunition reloading equipment for rifles and pistols, offering reloading equipment throughout the world.

    ...and 5 years ago it was only $7.50. The RBCS one I quoted above comes with an offset steel handle too.
    If it was easy, anybody could do it.

    I'm sure a Ball End could be added to just about any press handle.
