I'm wanting to add a roller handle to my press. I don't want to replace the entire lever just the handle. Anyone know where I could source the handle shown on Gavin's site. http://ultimatereloader.com/?p=340

The handle Gavin is selling won't attach to the stock Hornady lever. (?)

I'm only looking for the chrome handle not the entire arm. I figured I could weld a nut onto the end of my existing handle to thread it into. I'll probably just break down and buy his setup, I'm just cheap.

I made this for about $5 and it works really well. It's just a bent piece of aluminum, a bolt and a piece of PVC tubing over a piece of aluminum tubing. I had grand ideas of putting cartridge bearings in the ends of the PVC instead of having the aluminum tube inside, but it really isn't needed.

I'm a tinkerer without a lot of spare cash, so I enjoy doing stuff like this. I'm in the process of adapting a Lee case feeder to my LnL because I don't have $300 for a Hornady case feeder.

Now that's happiness right there. :)

I've been thinking of this as well, as I have 2 Lee case feeders. Please keep notes and let us know how this goes.

That handle is killer!

I found the roller handle http://mortonmachine.thomasnet.com/viewitems/handwheels-handles-handknobs-handles/metric-revolving-handles?

I just need to figure out how to attach it.

Hey thanks for that link. It hadn't occurred to me to look on youtube to see what others had already come up with. I got some good ideas from watching that video that I'll have to incorporate in my version. Did anyone else notice the ground wire he's got attached to the press mounting bolt? Static prevention?
I'll post what I come up with, but we're leaving on our annual two week vacation in a couple of days (WOOHOO!!!!) so it won't be until some time in July.

Hey Guys,
This is what I did.
I bought a new Lee Pro 1000 cylinder plate and case feeder tubes.

So you just use it to collate? Grab a case, slide it over by hand, repeat.

I ordered a roller from McMaster, but do not remember which one.

Added grip rubber liner and AC cooling insulation tubing to make handle kinda open gripped. All for ergonomics. Ease of production = less effort, more shells in can

Any pictures? I found a roller on fleabay pretty cheap but it's only 3.25" long. I'm not sure it will be big enough for my mitts. I still need to figure out how to attach it.
