I want to install a counter on my LNL AP, does anyone have an idea what i should look for??
I would like to stay with a mechanical counter.
Thanks, Floyd:)

Take a look through the sticky's for "What clever little things have you "invented or discovered" that you can share?" I have seen a few in there. Also may look under the reloading bench sticky. Clever stuff in both, and I have seen more than a few posts there.

I've had this one on my RCBS for about 40 years.

Works perfect if you can remember to re-set it.

Just mount it and hook the spring or arm to something that moves.
On this one, the toggle arm just pushs on the lever each stroke.

You should be able to buy one at any industrial supply place.

rc, thanks, I did a search and yours is the only mech counter I can across:)
There are some on E-Bay that may work.

Thanks again, Floyd

Granger & McMaster-Carr also have tons of different models.
But not for $12 bucks!

McMaster Carr Mechanical Counters. (http://www.mcmaster.com/#mechanical-counters/=k9k74l) All sorts of mechanical linkage mechanical counters. You would also think somewhere out there there are boatloads falling off a boat from China for the cheap.

<Edit> and now I see where rcmodel already hit McMaster. </EDIT>

Similar to RC's counter. Will work for a progressive press handle and counts pulls.
When just getting the press set up for changes, you could disconnect the counter very easily until ready to load and keep a running tally.
