    I now own a version of a Single Stage Press. :faint:

    Gio was generous beyond belief and gave me a Classic Lyman Turret. Like his poor 550 it needed a little TLC. The shafts were frozen up, had a little rust and it was missing a handle. I was able to get the shafts to move a little after some WD40. Then I was able to remove and re-lube all three primary shafts. My friend Lizard made me a handle out of bar stock and put my Dillon handle ball on it. It now runs like a new. I use it for sizing cast bullets and probably am going to get a lead hardness testing kit just to drive me nuts testing alloys. That way I have something else to obsess over. ;)

    A huge THANKS to Gio and all his help getting me up to speed casting and for this wonderful press.

    You could make flawless diamonds with that thing.
