    I got one of these off ebay. Wondering if anyone has the manual or knows where I can get one. I already emailed Lyman and have not heard back. Its the hand press.

    Thanks Todd

    Hey Smilin,

    I don't have a manual for the Lyman Acculine hand/bench tool, but I do have one, and I may be able to answer questions for you about it. It seems they stopped making them some years ago, and it would also seem they did not make them for too many years. I don't know why they would not have been a decent seller for them. They still make the Lyman 310 Nutcracker hand tool and special dies for them. I also have several Nutcrackers and a few die sets which are pretty neat to show folks how you can reload shells while sitting on the tailgate of your truck. However, the Acculine uses regular shell holders and regular dies and is less work to full length resize than the Nutcracker which only neck sizes.

    Let me know if I can help you.'

    Best wishes,
    Dave Wile

    Do you have access to a scanner or can you copy the manual and I will reimburse you any costs.

    Thanks for the link. The Acculine I purchased is a no longer sold hand press. I was unable to find the manual. Todd

    I have got the manual thanks for all who helped

    Hey Smilin,

    One or both of us misunderstood something here. I do not have a manual for the Acculine hand tool, but I do have and use the Acculine hand tool. I meant to tell you that I am familiar with how it works and would be willing to help you if you stumble over something along the way. Now it would seem from your last post, you found a manual for the Acculine.

    Best wishes,
    Dave Wile

    Sorry, I didn't read your post well. I see now that it is a PRESS you want a manual for and not a trimmer. Didn't know they made the acculine press. Knew about the trimmer though.
    I see you may have found a manual from a Cast Boolit member.

    No problem its all good. Its just one of those things I found to go along with the other single stage I had. I got the manual and I am sure I will have some questions. Thanks for the help.
