    Hi. I have a Classic 4 Hole Turret Press, and was wondering if anyone here could tell me if the Classic Cast Breach Lock Single Stage can be installed in the same holes on my bench.

    Thanks.

    :)

    Interesting. I'll have to take a closer look later.

    Thanks! :)

    No. They aren't the same bollt holes. I know because I have both of them mounted on my bench.

    Lee has a steel base now. I wonder if it would work with a Dillon. I would not use a wood base on a larger press or any Lee progressive. Movement is really bad on a progressive press.

    I didn't see a steel base. Where'd you find it?

    Thanks.

    It's in the link UncleBob posted. The black thing with all the holes in it.

    I should have said Metal not steel. For all I know it's aluminum.

    :embarassed: Sorry. I guess I 'saw'it, but didn't 'look' at it. It must be the pre-drilled base they refer to in the description.

    Thanks again.
