    Hello all- I've had quite a few of you ask about the Hornady Ergonomic Roller handles, and they haven't been available for a while.

    Well, I do have a batch I'm working on that are available for pre-order here:
    http://ultimatereloader.com/?p=340

    From that page:
    Update: 03/10/2010 – Now available for order! Items will start shipping by 03/19/2010 (hopefully before)

    **I don't have bullet trays available yet, but I'm working on it.

    Thanks!
    Gavin

    So that's where the crank handles on my lathe disappeared to! :evil:

    They do look nice.

    I took my press handle off and stuck in in the hole on my pickup bumper and put a bend in it! Works nice but i might have to try this.

    I used a big vise to bend mine. Worked out well. I bent mine lower, to mimic the old Projector.

    No offense, but

    Guys, please don't rain on his design. While I applaud your ingenuity......let him have his day. He is someone trying to improve on a design. Don't squash the inventive spirit.


    (please post your discoveries in another thread)

    Just my 2 cents

    Placed my order last night. I've always envied the roller handle that Dillon offers for their machines, and can't wait to for the package to arrive. :)

    Can we get just the handle? I built my bench based on the original arm so that has to stay.

    Roccobro- Can you elaborate on what you mean by "just the handle" ?

    You shouldn't have a problem with the bend in the arm- it will clear any bench as long as the edge of the bench is straight (not curved around press or anything non-standard like that).

    Thanks,
    Gavin

    I think he means can the roller handle be attached to the original straight handle?

    Yes, thank you Mongoose. That is what I meant.

    Gavin- Rereading my post I was not clear on the part I was asking about. Also, I know your bent arm would "clear" the bench. I just have the height of the bench set up for the lowest part of the stroke to be just right.

    My roller handle arrived Friday afternoon.... very pleased with it. It's a lot more comfortable, and though it may just be in my head - it seems as if it takes less effort to get more leverage. Definitely recommended.
