Never heard of that one, but it might be a good way to go. If you have a spare, I would definitely be interested.

It is amazing how much stuff is on Ebay once I have a couple good key words to search on.

Wood lathe should work, just turn the maple part the size you need it and put a hole in it, then make a recess for the mec finger bushing. Then head off to the local hardware store with a wad in hand and find a washer with a hole large enough that the wad passes thru. Drill the holes thru the washer and use wood screws to hold it in place.

That's how I do it - MEC 600 and a roll crimper of indeterminate origin. Yields the most perfect square roll crimps.
BTW The wad guides at Southam's are Barclay's Patent - I made several when I was building case tools.

I think you can modifie a mec single stage press by drilling a new hole in the square shaft to lower the loading head .

Brent, look at this and skip to 3mins. 30 secs and you will see the object I mean. Easy to shorten one if required if one can be sourced. I'm looking for a spare that I think I must have somewhere. Lagopus.....

I think.im on the trail of something very similar to that Lee die. I will build a wooden arbor for it and I'll be good to go.

I've made a lot of different tools for loading this gun. 4 different case trimmers, a priming press, a depriming
tool, roll crimping setup, spring loaded wad compressor. They work surprisingly well and are fun to create and improve.
