Re: Easier 9mm case collator fix

Just figured this one out. Obviously the fix is to make the holes smaller. I have tried the plastic and screw bit and although effective difficult to keep around when you need it and it takes a lot of cutting to the right size. Try this, easy breezy and effective. All you need it a penny and .22 ca...

Sorry I've been gone for a while. I have a lot of spinal cord damage which causes many unexpected and unplanned health issues. This has nothing to do with the primer arm or its return spring or the turrent being cracked. The primer pressing pin fails to retract completely out of the plastic. It act...

Re: the fix

A great fix, the biggest challenge was getting the hole drilled in the center of the penny. But I got it and it works great loaded about 300 9mm tonight with the fix. Great Idea! :wink: I used a lathe and chucked the penny. Center drilled and drilled using a 1/4 inch centerdrill and a #2 Drill (.22...

prs My square rod is not nickle plated. Could mine be an early version. Very possible. My original one was bent when I got it second hand. Lots of parts were buggered-up. When I called Lee, I got Mr Lee as my telephone helper. He went way beyond the call of duty and had me explain what I could see ...

As far as the press goes it is working great! I have loaded 850 rounds so far and I like it! :D The only bad thing that I have to say is that I got a bad 2L shell plate that I ordered with the press and it is just a bad part that should have never been shipped in the first place. :x Lee asked for s...

Re: Modification Goals for My Lee Loadmaster Project

Hi all, :) Disclaimer: I would like to say right up front that a good number of these ideas came from reading this forum and listening to what you guys have had to say. So let no one accuse me of being less than honest by not giving credit where credit is due. Many of the ideas and how to implement...

[quote="Horseman"]I'm loading large primers only at this point, 45 colt and 44 mag. I'm going to be gone for a while so I won't get to the photos on what I did on my primer setup. My best friend in the whole wide world for over 40 years has just been diagnosed with stage 4. All through his...

4. You won't find plastic tougher than what they use now for their "plastic" parts. It's tough stuff! 15. Billiard balls! They are GREAT! This. I'd add: machine threads onto the end of the handle so that you can screw a billiard ball or other ball into place on it. Make the threads the sa...

Wanted: Lee Loadmaster for Project.

I am looking for a Lee Loadmaster for an upgrade project. Although the press comes from the factory in sound mechanical condition as a professional machinist I see improvements that can be made. My goal is to rival Dillon and Hornady. Well at least in my own little world!! I am unwilling to use new ...

You have missed one of the most beneficial mods. One that was designed for convenience, but that through serendipity keeps the primer punch well clean; thus the convenience pales to the improved reliability. The spent primer catch tube is a simple and highly desirable mod. prs I will put it on the ...

Thanks for being so generous with your post. I found your review helpful in my decision to buy a Lee Loadmaster. I too plan on writing a review after about 5000 rounds or so myself. I hadn't considered a long term review until now. One of the reasons that I hesitated to take the plunge was because o...
