    Drewski, those are very nice presses, but just be aware that not all dies fit into the slot. Might just be a locking issue, someone on here that has a co ax will probably be along shortly...

    I have a Forsters Coax press, I have Lee, Lyman, RCBS and Forsters dies and have not had any difficulty fitting these dies.

    And yes they are a very nice press that will last a lifetime.

    Buy with confidence, good luck finding a second hand one.
    Workshop Innovation have always been one of the sharper prices domestically for a new one.

    Extremely nice presses. The only issue I am aware of was that with the introduction of Redding Comp dies in longer case lengths the press handle would not clear the top of the die/the micrometer adjuster. Maybe other tall dies also gave the same problem - I don't know. Fixed on later press models.

    I got a heap of collars for my coax that allow any dies I have used to fit.
    Haven't had any issues with calibers that I have used. Redding dies come with collars that also fit the press.
    I can see really long dies having trouble clearing the gap under the handle but it could be modified to allow them if you really needed to use them.
    Bought my press in the early 90's and it is still going strong. Paint has faded a bit.
