    I dew this up so I could mount some LED lights to my press. Then printed it out with my 3D printer. Only took two prints and works great.

    Serious talent. You should show this to Lee. I'd buy it.

    Great idea. I supposed that if you really wanted to wait for the print to finish, you could also add a tail for the wires to crawl down to the base.

    Forgive my ignorance.

    Where is the best place to purchase LED lights for press lighting?

    I began looking last week at home improvement stores and Harbor Freight and Amazon.

    One of my presses is a Lee Classic Turret, very nice.

    Pretty effective $1.00 LED solution at Dollar Tree. Clamp fits the vertical posts perfect too. For a dollar I saw it in this video

    Thanks. I had looked at book lights. I will give a gooseneck book light a try.

    Hornady makes a press light kit that is quite inexpensive. I found mine on sale for about $7.50 if I remember correctly. It comes with an AC adaptor with a long cord. I mounted mine on the front vertical turret support of my LCT so the light shines back to the case & away from my eyes. It's crazy bright! I'll try and post a pic so you can see how it looks later. Good luck! ImageUploadedByTapatalk1452462263.825183.jpg ImageUploadedByTapatalk1452462280.256195.jpg ImageUploadedByTapatalk1452462291.140180.jpg

    Single most important addition at any press I believe. Great work!

    Saaaayyy, how come your LCT rotates clockwise? Mine rotates counter-clockwise!

    If you live below the equator, the press rotates the other way.

    Inline Fabrication case ejector kit! It comes with a reverse twist index rod, case kicker, and a base that fits under the press that holds the 2 bins on the left ( bins included, too). Allows you to keep rt. hand on the press lever and it kicks the finished case into the bin on the left. It's a well thought out system & eliminates a lot of hand motions.
    (Sorry for the thread hijack!)
