Agreed. Compared with the Treso AMPCO nipples I've added to my Dance and a couple Pietta Remingtons, the flash holes on my R&S are much larger in diameter.
I used "K&S Precision Metals 6020 Soft Annealed Copper Foil, 0.005 Copper, 36 Gauge, 12" Width x 30" Length, 1 pc, Made in USA" from Amazon to make these caps.

Binder is definitely needed, found that the hard way. No matter how much I shake the little jar, nothing comes out of the caps. I too started re-reading all the other posts and even found the link to the TheOutlawKid's original posting on making caps.
Black Jack, if I do end up welding the top base, it will be just a quick tack weld with my mig welder. Also thinking about Welding on a 1" shaft collar on the end of the Quick change, probable a split one. I also ordered some of the Lee Lock Bushings, they have the collar built in, but the unit is aluminum. I will decide Friday what will work best when my order gets here from Midway.
If this does work like I think it will, others will be able to use it on their non-Lee reloading press's. Lee make's an adapter for them to fit most.

MR Dave K&S makes the same thing in brass reported to work well and just a bit harder. That would stop the flow back in your caps.

I could have drilled out the Lee, and JB'd the maker to it, but that old 30 year thing still has sentimental value, even if I haven't used it in years.
The 3/4" union is what I came up with to hold the punch.
