    this guy is really sharp. takes a good, proven product and figures out how to make it better.

    in this case, a new roller handle for my 550B, and a roller handle for my square deal B.

    the roller handle for the square deal is really neat. i like it 'cause it is more ergo for me and the cool factor is off the chart.

    the roller handle for the 550B is a huge improvement. i was having to bend over a few inches on each and every stroke. if you load 350 rounds an hour, that means you have to bend over 350 times in that hour. for an old timer like me, that can be an issue. with the new handle, i get 5 inches of less bending over, or i can pretty much stay upright. it is hard to 'splain, but it really is a big difference.

    the guy also sells all kinds of neat stuff, lighting for your presses and gunsafes, handles for other brands of presses, and all kinda gizmos to make your reloading 'more better'.

    check out his website

    oh yeah, i ordered this past thursday, got the handles, today on monday. he was even quicker when i ordered my lighting for my presses. he also answers e-mails and returns phone calls, quickly.

    was goin' to post some pics, but they were too big, or something. but.....there are good pics on his website.

    other than doing business with the guy, and giving him my money, i have no other relationship with this guy or his company. i am getting nothing out of giving this glowing endorsement for great products and service. just want to give you guys a heads up on what is available.

    Post a report on the roller handle for the Square Deal, it looks interesting.

    there has been stuff posted about dan's lighting systems, but i have found nothing on the handles. if my post on the handles is not the first, then the search function forgot all about it.

    i do not understand why folks get their knickers in a twist when they think there is a duplicate topic post. if there is a duplicate post, it is not really all that dreadful.

    there are some things out there worthy of consternation, but a duplicate topic post is not one of them.

    If you get your press set up at the right height you have at least for me no bending at the waist using either the ball or aluminum roller handles. I also load standing.

    I agree, If your bending over the press is simply too low. Dillon's handle is also nicer by a large amount. I word raise the press and get the Dillon handle. Trust me, that is the right direction to go.

    The compound bends he uses should make it more likely that the handle will twist during the downstroke.
