    On page 311, of the Midway Master catalog number 33, (the new one) there is a Franklin Arsenal ad. And in the ad there is a single stage press with a Frankford Arsenal sticker on it. It looks like a beast. And nice too.

    But I really hate it when ad's contain products that don't exist!!!:banghead:

    I looked it up on their own website, midway, and else where...Nada.

    EDIT : Frankford Arsenal, not franklin. Couldn't change the title....

    Frankford Arsenal is one of Midways many trade names for products they sell.

    This right here was revised in 2000, ten years ago.

    Don't know if they are bringing it back, or what.

    I did notice the other day that Graf & Sons is selling big old Chinese reloading presses now too.

    I think they photoshopped the whole image to create an appealing advertisement

    The case tumbler appears to be 'floating' a half inch above the bench top. It appears to be the same picture at the bottom of the page, inserted into an old photograph.

    Also, the man in the photo is holding the digital caliper with the display facing away from him, how on earth does he expect to read the display?

    I have been using Frankford Arsenal dial calipers for about a year now and they work great.
    I just bought my friend a Frankford Arsenal digital caliper , so we will see how it does.
