Maybe someone else had this issue and can save me some investigating. I picked up another LNL (brand new), bolted it down to the bench, cycled it by hand a few times and noticed that something is dragging\binding at the primer seating portion of the stroke. The ram stays stuck down in the seating position if you let go of the handle.(Spring is installed) It isn't the primer slide assembly It seems to possibly be the brass tube that the spent primer drops thru is not inline with the hole bored for it in the press frame. (So it binds when the ram brings it closest to its hole in the press frame) The ram looks good with no obvious drag marks or scratches. I lubed everything and cycled the hell out of it and it still sticks down. I think I might have to knock the tube out of it and see if that helps. Any thoughts? Wanna kill these ads? We can help!
