    ah, I never make it over there.

    have interesting stuff, but never much liked the people who worked there or their prices.

    Well, i hopefully picked the last fly out of the ointment,.
    This old press used a j type shell holder, so I had to find a j to x shell holder conversion. That would allow standard shell holders to be used.
    It was a lyman 7095762, the priming posts are 7095763, but I'm not going to try and source them now..

    Mid 50's early 60's if I had to guess, I'm just glad the turret has 4 standard 7/8" holes for dies.
    I have another that was dad's that has 3 standard holes and a oddball size one relating to shotgun stuffs, now tracking down an adapter for that would be a challenge. But I know folks with a good skill set that could help if absolutely needed.

    Dads press is in a bit more used condition than this one.
    But back in the time when stuff was American made.

    I was finally able to get that elusive set of molds

    Hooray, missing puzzle piece showed up today.

    Only took 10 days to go from middle Tennessee to here.
    Now the one from graf's has not even gone through processing yet.

    But this will complete all things needed for my friend to get started.
    I'll even let him borrow a caliper.
    Took a while to get it together thanks for the help brothers
