    Is there anywhere that sells replacement RCBS parts, besides the manufacturer? I found a rockchucker JR3 in the scrap iron today and its missing the Handle. I'll have to post some pics but after sand blasting it and painting it defiently doesn't look like it belongs in the scrap.

    Does it take the same size handle as the Rock Chucker? If it does I should have one lying around here.

    Paint it blue, and Dillon will send you parts for free.. :)

    Have you checked Ebay? Other than that, your best bet is probably gonna be RCBS.

    No, they have different part numbers. I have a lathe I may just make one.

    lol, I like the idea but I've already painted it red, and don't want to have to sandblast it twice.

    Doesn't Red and Green give a lifetime warranty as well?

    Seriously, it's easy to make a handle on the lathe.

    Whats size is the hole on the press?

    I have a JR3. Awesome little press. Super tight tolerances. I love it. I can take any measurements you may need.

    I don't suppose you know what the thread pitch is?

    Give me a 1/2 hour. We're just sitting down to supper. I'll check when we're done.

    It's 18 threads per inch. And I didn't just use a ruler and count, I have a gauge. I didn't have any dies in the garage that were 18 x 1/2 in, so I don't know how common it is. You may have to buy a die just to thread it.

    1/2-18 is common enough, I didn't have one in my set at home but I think I do at the shop.
