    Walnut Hill dies

    I recieved an email from Corbin manufacturing that they will be making dies to fit walnut hill and sea gurt presses. They will also support, repair and offer press parts. D

    Got the same E-Mail. Although I do not have Walnut Hill or Sea Gurt products; it's always nice to know a product has not become an Orphan with no support available.

    That's actually pretty cool, though it doesn't effect me.

    Would you guys mind copying what was in the email, I haven't bought from Dave so no email, and I only saw adapters listed on his site. Thanks!

    just emailed him about a week ago asking about stuff for the sea girt and he said only special order, must have got to thinking about the business he was missing out on now that his brother is out of business.

    The email is a little un clear, I emailed and specifically asked about the reason for the .458 size limit on the "dies to fit the SG/WH presses" and he stated that the email is about using the S die adapters and S dies in the SG/WH presses. He did say that they would build a "custom set" of WH dies but you have to send in a set of dies you already have so they can measure them and make a copy in the caliber you want.

    Thanks, that's a bummer I was hoping had start making compatible dies but figured it was the adapter and the S dies.

    That's excellent. I already have a couple of Corbin point form dies I use with a 5/8"-7/8" thread adapter and Walnut Hill punches. I'd like to pick up a few more point form dies for different profiles (452 3/4E, 357 1E, etc)

    I wish someone would fire up a Baird transfer punch press (like Richard was using) and make jackets. None of this fifteen cents nonsense. No reason the jacket should cost more than finished bullets cost..

    Has anyone asked if Dave plans on offering a WH size press? For a hand press, the h dies are quite large and the s dies small the wh sized dies are great in size.

    I'm sure the answer is no. I've talked to him extensively about his presses and he feels they are all perfect as is for the job they are designed to do.

    Looks like Richard is coming out with a new press. It looks similar to Dave's CSP-1 but the ram is threaded 7/8-14. Too bad I got 3 Walnut Hills, a CSP-1 & a CSP-2 & a Mity-Mite plus his Hydraswage. I'm still interested as soon as he prices them.
