I have been loading on a lee turret press for more than 20 years. Anyone who uses this press probaly knows of the eventual problems with indexing caused by the ratchet clamp 'collapsing' due to 'overtightening' (according to Lee). I have been dealing with this problem using one of the 2 suggestions from lee; by shimming the ratchet hex nut with masking tape. However, this solution no longer seems to be working for me so I want to try the 2nd method suggested by Lee, which is to 'grind down' the nylon ratchet itself to a slightly smaller diameter so it will no longer by clamped tightly by the clamp but can rotate freely. Does anyone have any experience grinding down the nylon ratchets? I would sure appreciate suggestions for grinding down the nylon ratchet.... any good methods that have worked for anyone?
