Im just wondering why and what happened to all the old companies that made great reloading and casting equipment like Potter, Herter's, Hollywood Gun Shop, Hensley & Gibbs, Modern Bond, Saeco pots, etc, etc. Its a shame that all of this stuff is lost over time and noone has taken them over to manufacture what they used to because it was mostly great quality stuff that lasted forever compared to the new junk thats imported. What would it take to buy one of those old patents and start making something again that was made a long time ago? Im just so supprised that a company like Herter's wasnt bought out by someone that had money to keep the ball rolling because it seems that they were the king of mail order in the 60's. Plus they made real good reloading equipment that was made to last for generations.
