    WTB - Lyman primer tubes

    Gents - Looking to find some factory, Lyman primer tubes, Large or Small - 1 or 2 of each would be great - Picked up a newer 2nd hand, T-Mag turret press from a fellow member here, a few months ago and now that good weather is finally upon us, I'd like to get it up and running. Even if it's the full assembly with the tube feed, I'd take it, as I have a spare turret. The small ones are around on the market, but large ones are no where currently - so I thought I'd ask here first. Thanks to all - Bill in MA

    Don't know what the OD of your tubes are, but for my Dillon I used tubing from McMaster Carr for my primer tubes. Large primers are .210" in diameter and this tubing from McMaster Carr has an ID of .215" making it a perfect fit for primer tubes. Hope this helps.....

    Johnny V - Thanks for the heads up on that, I'm just learning about the Lyman, but the tubes are different than the RCBS ones that I'm accustomed to, as these have a stepped alloy collar, as opposed to the straight wall tubing of the RCBS ones. Bill

    Bill, if you could find someone with a lathe they could turn a stepped collar. Looks like a fairly straight forward lathe job. Hope you find some....

    I have a bunch of primer tubes here. If you have a pic of the proper ones I will see if I have a match here.
