It's a bit of a drive. Road trip!!!
I like the reference to "Soviet Russia level desperation". I remember reading some of the extremes they would go to. Give me a roll of gorilla tape. A good made in America multi tool, Some bailing wire, Bubble gum and I'll build you a space ship. I just hate to give up on something just because it's not quite up to spec. Last night I was going through a box that had been in the back of the shed and found a shoe box of shot 9mm (I think I now own more 9mm cases that the Idaho National Guard) so I do still have a use for a decapper die pin and an empty space in my press head for Mr WestKentucky's fine gift.
Correction. It's what's left of a Lee sizing die.
Contact me through PM and I can fix it for you.
Once repaired, use only a 6-point socket or 6-point box-end wrench on that collet bolt.
That’s my suggestion.
Ahhhh yes......one of the 3 little sentences that'll get you thru life.....
Joking aside, round file ...........
I have always wanted to see, Idaho!
Looked hard enough and was willing to take out a 2nd mortgage.
So far we're up to $3.22.
Naw, that was kind of a joke, albeit maybe a poor one at that.
I laughed. That alone should tell you it was in poor taste.
Like the old saying, "I'd never belong to a club that would have me for a member."
Sounds like me, sometimes I'm the only one in the room laughing at the dumbest jokes.
You....laugh at something in poor taste....well of course, those are usually the funniest.
I'm really not a fan of how Lee puts that decap pin in a collet like that. You sometimes have to really give it some torque to keep it from shifting. Obviously, the proper tools(Cresent wrench , metric or standard ) work the best. Looks to me like that jam nut was tightened with a pair of vice grips with worn out teeth........
Give us a shot of the bottom of the die.
I had a .308 die that stripped the threads. I sent it back to Lee and they replaced it for free.
