    That is called an adjustable reamer, the problem is getting it perfectly centered.






    there is a post showing a member removing gas check shank with a drill bit a drill press vise and a drill press, go figure!

    Bonus points if it fits an RCBS case prep center or Wilson trimmer.
    Lyman makes one, look in their catalog about $11.95.
    I just saw the post byChrisX, that is the one, but I didn't know they made a crank handle for it.

    ChrisX1, get a hard hat or learn to duck! I always leave the handle in the down position before I take my hand off the handle.

    I had a thought this afternoon as my arm was getting tired from holding the mold will casting. I switched hands and realized just how much of a righty I am, but it occurred to me that I don't recall seeing a bottom pour with a left handed lever for the spout. Is there one made?

    It really doesn't look like it would be hard to bend up a left handed lever for my Lee pot.

    I wish someone would come up with a carbide type die for tapered and shouldered cases so I wouldn't have to mess with lubing the cases. I get lube all over my fingers and when I pick my nose it causes an irritation which causes me to sneeze and whoosh...there goes all my gunpowder!!

    I would like to have a rifle die set up like a case trimming die but longer, set up so that you could insert a loaded round and and adjust the die to change a pointed bullet to flat with a file. This way better hunting profiles could be created and bullets could also be made more appropriate for lever actions.

    There are two theories to arguing with a woman .. . Neither works.

    Women always say that giving birth is way more painful than a guy getting kicked in the nuts.There is no way to prove that they are wrong.

    But a year or so after giving birth a woman will often say "It would be nice to have another child".

    You never hear a guy say, "It would be nice to get kicked in the nuts again".

    My driveway sweeper pickups everybody's brass, but that's OK. It beats bending over.

    I modified a fold-up umbrella I got at the dollar store to help catch brass. It's real windy where I live, so I took off the fabric and replaced it with a big piece of netting from the fabric store. Prop it up on the bench with a couple sandbags next to where I'm shooting. Not perfect, but deflects them downward and close by. Saves a LOt of time chasing them!

    an inexpensive way to reload 410 shotgun.

    I know I can't be the only one that has a kid with a 410, that will likely "trade up" in a year or two.

    I just can't justify the expense of buying the full MEC setup for a shotgun that's "temporary"

    Lee doesn't make a lee loader, or a shotgun press for 410. In there FAQ's they point you to MEC for 410.

    It should be possible to make a die set for a rockchucker, or similar press, to do 410 2.5"
    you would need an extended shell holder to clear the larger shotgun primers

    Somebody was talking about making up a Lee Loader type thing for the .410 a few months back. It may have been Lathesmith. I don't really remember.

    I had written a letter to Lee a few years ago asking them to please either bring back the .410 Lee Loader or else bring out a Lee Load All in .410. I never got a response.

    I had a quick go at doing that sort of thing myself a while back. My results were sort of OK on the first try. You can see what I did, starting around post #16 in this thread - http://castboolits.gunloads.com/show...highlight=.410

    The part that I didn't get done was finding a place to buy crimp starters in .410.

    very interesting question,even more so with ideas,so heres mine, id like to see a see through window in my lubamatic 2 press letting me know the level of lube left. hense air gaps ,and time to clean it out. theres alot of load data books out there,,how about a lube formula book,with directions,and differant resipies,this i think would be nice to have on hand,and should be on every load bench. i think it would be a hot ticket. also how about a offset adaptor to convert a single stage press into a 7hole turret press. also how about a brass holding clear tubes,most guys are either bagging it, or boxing it,how about clear plastic tubes, the diamiter would be 6cases in a circle inside the tubes,and the tubes marked=6 for the fist level,next level up 12,next level up 18,and so on,making 50 and 100 round tubes,with srew cap ends,this would stop the counting of brass,and save time for knowing exactly what,and how many needed. these tubes can be made for all caliber handguns,rifles. if tube gets knocked over so what,theres not going anywere,and can be seen exactly whats what,and how many with a simple look. no more bags, torn bags,boxes,counting,spilling,ect. theres my sugestions. i think the lube formula cook,resipe book,and the brass tube holder will be hot sellers. i have more!! im loaded-lol

    If you read the description of the dies from Dillon you still need to lube their bottleneck carbide dies.
