    WTB Reloading Press.

    Hi All,

    I've just sent my reloading press to the heap. The poor old thing gave up and broke a bit like this. Name:  BrokenLeePress.jpg

    Has anyone got an old single stage or any kind of press gathering dust they're willing to part with. At a young fulla friendly price of course

    With that is there anyone in South Dunedin (or there abouts) that wouldn't mind me sitting in their shed for a box of beer?

    Was that a lee press? I've got a set of the 'thingymebobs' in the garage, ordered them after I broke the originals. But we welded it up and hasn't broken again since. I think I broke that two years ago

    Yeah it's a lee press. The press is about poked even if you excuse that damage. It had a very hard life before coming to me, one of the link hands was missing, the ram was bent, one of the holes for the mounting bolts had been snapped off. I just don't think it want's to play the game anymore.

    hmm yeah sounds shagged alright. I thought for $10 it sounded like an easy and cheap fix.

    If it was just that I wouldn't think twice about fixing it. I'd been planning to get some molds from Titan so might get a press from there too if no body has one around.
