lil' cheaper darwin base plate

Postby carload9 » Fri Apr 26, 2013 9:53 pm

Ok, this smaller turret press i saved some money unlike my LLM base plate. This is hardwood darwin base plate on the cheaper easy side. It did the trick.

Mine is the original (aluminum) Turret Press. I just bolted it to a length of 2x10, which I mount to the work bench with two C-clamps.

Its a rig-ment of my imagination. Its cantelevered out back with those 4 bolts. Over-kills good, its is much solid over the lee base mount. You saw my overkill plate on my loadmaster.

Gotta get on the LLM and make some 45's, bout shot em all,, xds running 100%.
