    Hi, guys.

    My Lyman 2500 just died :uhoh: after rendering pretty good service for a couple years.

    Time to buy a new one - I can get another Lyman 2500 (I replaced one two years ago, after IT died :scrutiny:) but I can see Graf's sells one of their own and it may be a close comparison.

    I can't find any reviews on the Grafs though. Anybody care to share opinions before I buy? It would be nice to have a cleaner that'll last longer....

    Thanks!

    Nice. I just bought a Lyman 1200, after my Frankford Arsenal unit went Tango Uniform. Probably have to get a small cement mixer if we want something that'll "last".

    I bought the Cabela's tumbler to replace a Harbor freight tumbler. The Cabela's is a larg capacity, is light weight and very quiet. You can buy them for $45.

    You might want to look at the Berry's tumbler. I've been using one for about 10 years now, along with two Thumler's UV-18's. Here is the link for the Berry's:

    Hope this helps.
