    I still have my Lee Zip-trim.
    Had to replace the string once.

    Those three jaw chucks are a bit of a trial alright! A bit of cleaning, a bit of lube and some practice to get the case centered while firmly held in the center can strain one’s patience!

    Since yo have a zip trim, if you are interested, I can check how I fastened an 8-32 threaded shank tool in a pistol case and PM you or post the answer here.

    Like most things Lee, automatic as long as you provide the "motor."
    I still have a pair of those. I no longer use them, but I'm keeping them just the same.

    What I really think it's missing is an allen set screw so the chuck doesn't slip threads and readjusted again the buna O-ring just isn't enough. Easy to do, just never got around to it.
