    Do any of you have experience or knowledge of this reloader? I do not believe they are still in business so I wonder about availability of parts (if needed). I believe they were made by a family company in East Liverpool Ohio.

    Never seen one of those. That loader looks very stout to say the least.

    Good luck on finding a source for parts and stuff.
  3. The unit was called The TOOL. It was very well made and eventually they fully automated the unit with a motor drive and and an OMRON controller. So,e units had dual handles for operation. I know Of one commercial reloader that has one.

    I saw two of these the other day. They are no longer in business, but one of the two owners is still alive. They went bankrupt and I have not idea what happened to the spares.

    There are no spare parts available. You would have to have new parts machined.

    Not quite, Kevin--

    I purchased a fair quantity of parts for these thru a previous owner of the company.

    I am pulling a list together. Anyone needing parts can contact me. Maybe I have what you need.

    Thanks Fred. I'm starting to spread out and get away from that THAT place!! Rules and regs and FEES are killing me. They nailed me hard for listing an empty gun box. I've about had it.

    It's the San Francisco mentality, Rick. They don't have a clue what the real world is like. The unfortunate part is they have the huge audience and good search engine, which none of the other sites have.

    With that said, it's great that you've got parts for the OP's press. That's the value of these forums. That, and the sharing of information and experience.

    And where are you located?

    I have some investment in this platform so I guess you could say I am interested. However, as Kevin asks, my interest is somewhat dependent on your location. It also depends what you have (specifically) and what you want for it. These reloaders have not been made for many years and the parts are hard to come by. I know because I have squirreld some away. Drop me a PM or email and we can talk about it.
