My Old Lyman Orange Crusher Press

Postby reloader762 » 02 May 2021 08:01

Bought this press in a kit back when I first started reloading back in the mid 80s, no telling how many thousands of rds. of rifle and pistol ammo I have loaded on this press. Has some time yesterday so I took her all apart and cleaned everything up and give her a new coat of paint. I think it turned out pretty decent and I still use it quite often.

A lyman press on a Lee bench plate. Did you have to drill new holes, or did it fit?

It fit without drilling new holes, just slightly off center but it worked.
