    It appears to be homemade using a Brown Bair press as the frame. The top plate and shell holder plate are not symmetrical in shape. The shell holder adapters are Lyman J adapters. Who know, it might actually work. Go for it Sal.

    Whoever made It , there seemed to be a lot of time spent on machining or casting if it will work properly. the shell holder adaptors will take standard One that will lock in with the lock nut. The maker must have had a lot of time on his hand
    There also seems to be a remnant of a primer feed in the rear. But I give the Guy a good idea
