    Got a sweet deal on a nicely rebuilt Lyman 450 so i had a friend make me an aluminum plate mount and got it setup on my casting bench. Got some .452 and .358 sizing dies on the way and Im ready to start lubing the easy way. Started off with tumble lubing, then PC now this should speed up my low pressure plinkers.

    Im gonna use a clothes iron on the plate in cold temps to get the lube flowing well.

    I plan on using white label lubes blue carnauba for almost everything. Their 2500+ lube may end up on the 35 Rem loads and maybe some 300 Blackout[​IMG]

    Nice.
    I keep intending to make a heater for mine. Then I just put a little lamp right up against it instead.
    I'm using Randy Rat's lube, I think it's Tac 1 but I'd have to make sure.
    Need to drill my pins for cotter pins too, it came with push nuts and they just don't stay put. It all looks original and was barely used, but IIRC dad got it at a yard sale so who knows.

    Nice, I got either a Lyman 450. Got it used back in the mid 90s but didn't start using it till 11' . Also use couple Lee push thru sizers for Tumble Lubed bullets. Older picture when setting up. On left to right Lyman sizer/luber, MEC 650 Jr, Dillon 550B, powder stand and RCBS RS2 single stage.

    I did notice that the base on this sizer wasnt flat, so i hit it with my 1" bench belt sharpener and got it flatter. Probably why it was sold. The guy who sold it to me replaced the threaded center rod, the orings, and the die nut and everything is ready to go. Even gave me a tube of 2500+
