Metal


I decided to try to mount a handle on my press, mainly to stabilize and properly seat primers. I got to tinkering today, whipped this up. It is a work in progress, But I like it.
Still more to do. It's not as big as the pic makes it look.

How does it work?
I haven't gone into a reloading session with it yet. My thoughts are, that it is going work out very well. I took it off last night, and filled the handle with epoxy. Plan to remount and give it a go.
Likely be a few days before I really know.

You know I have to ask......is this for hand/upper body strength,force multiplier for you or to compensate for a weak bench top,mounting? Those were my fist two thoughts.
I can honestly say that my lee loadmasters could probably benefit from such an adaptation because of both of those two factors I mentioned. Doing 5 different thing at once and the addition to a weakish/long term temporary (yes I know,it’s just how it’s been) bench,tends to find some movement.

Primarily the bench setup that I have could be much stouter.

Edited to say: Not everybody has a rock solid stable bench, and as I have watched a large number of videos, many seem to be having a similar issue.
I watched one guy using two hands just to pull the handle.
Being able to use two hands on the press, allows one to be able to use their strength, and it's sort of like a fulcrum. Use what you got baby!
Especially when five stages are in progress.
