    My Lee 3 hole turret press broke!

    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Like the title says. The connector piece broke. However, I am by no means complaining. This press has been GREAT. I got it used from a friend back in the mid 80's who literally abused the crap out of it. I have loaded thousands of rounds on it since. Today at the end of resizing 1k 9mm rds the handle shifted and got real loose. I took it apart and found the connector had broken. A quick search on the net and $10 later the replacement part is ordered. Got to like this press, all those years of reloading and only having to spend $10 on it now. Lee makes a great product IMO.

    The same part on my Pro1000 broke years ago. They upgraded the part with a steel one.

    M&H. For any fuel catagory it is still GoodYear. If it is circle track racing they could run on wood for all I care:wavey:
