    Let me start this by saying that I am far from new to reloading, I just can never pass up a good deal on good reloading equipment.:) I recently sold an old Lyman T-mag to friend of mine because I needed the money and he wanted the press. I have regreted it from the start even though I hadn't been using it. A couple of days ago I got down to one of my favorite toy stores, Kittery Trading Post. In the used reloading section I found a like new Lyman T-mag press with primer feed attachment. The primer feed was new in the bag. The price on it was a hundred dollars but, when looking it over, I noticed that someone had seriously buggered the ram. It looks like he took a torch and a hammer to the part that holds the shell holder. Thinking quickly,:) I found a number to call Lyman in the package with the primer. I called and found out that a new ram would cost a whopping $12. I love cell phones, don't you. I took the press to the desk and got them down to $65.:D As soon as I got in the car I called and ordered the part, it should be here monday.
