    So I don't like the stock LnL handle. I didn't want to bend it. I couldn't find a 5/8-18 die so I found 5/8-18 all thread.

    What do you think? The roller part is just 3/4 brass pipe. It spins freely.

    I think it's overall too long. It seems to hand past the press more than the InlineFab one or others Ive seen. I can screw it more into the press and then bend up on the handle, that should help. It was $12 including 4 5/8s nuts, so getting another piece isn't a big deal. Beats $55 for the new ones. Plan on painting it black or finding 1/2 heat shrink tubing to go over the whole thing rod when I'm done

    What's the length in total for those with the inlinefabrication handles?

    Here's a screen shot of them side by side, mines not too bad. Needs a little tweaking.

    Mine is similar to the inline fabrication handle.
    Before making the bend where the roller handle goes I used a pair of vice grips to act as a handle helping me determine the position of the last bend.

    I think the way your handle dips down and back adds too much reach into the motion.

    I'll try to post some pictures tomorrow after work.

    Here is another hepful modification.
    No more dropped cases.
    I didn't invent it. I just copied it.

    What ever works for you. There not for me, they put your wrist and elbow at an unnatural angle which is bad for repetitive motion. I sit when I reload but could see where they may help if you stand. But it gets down to having everything at the right height for maximum comfort. Elbow straight when the ram is full up, this takes the stress off it.

    I put a little tweak in the original handle, I like the way the ball rolls in my hand.
    Maybe if one stands and loads, the roller handle would be a benifit, I sit when I load.

    I prefer the original handle. It's comfortable for me and works well.

    I replaced the original ball with an 8 ball (pool table balls) that were being made by a member from another forum. I think I paid $15 shipped. Best upgrade to my LnL AP.

    I thought about the roller handle and tried one. Didn't work for me.
