    At a recent auction, I acquired what appear to be a cased Dillon 550 shellplate with locator buttons, and a Dillon toolhead. Is there any way to identify which machine the toolhead fits? The pictures on their site seems to show a similar toolhead for the 550 and 650 as well as possibly other older models.
    I don't own any Dillon presses, so I'm trying to sell this stuff off.
    I'll try to post pictures later.

    How many threaded holes in the toolhead? If 4, 550b, if 5, 650b, if 6, 1050b.

    like he said about the tool heads and the shell plate should have a number stamped on it and if you go to dillons web sight they have a chart. If its a 4 hole tool head Id be interested email me at lws43@hotmail.com with a price

    It is a four hole toolhead. Lloyd, I'll try to send you an email this weekend with a picture of the toolhead. I also have a 550 shellplate with locator pins that I'll sell if anyone is interested. It has a tiny patina of rust on one side. I'll try to get a picture of that up too-in the for sale forum of course!
    Thanks for the dillon lesson, gentlemen.
