Lyman Tru-Line Junior turrent press
« on: November 01, 2009, 11:15:28 AM »
A guy at work fount this press in thebasement of a house he bought and asked me if I wanted it. I said ok and he put it in my pick up last night. It's rusty and needs a lot of cleaning. It has two 30-30 dies in it, but the dies are of a smaller diameter the the RSBS dies that I use. The shell holder is different also. Is this thing worth cleaning up or is it a door stop?

If it is using smaller dies, its probably a door stop. I am not sure of anyone making the old smaller diameter dies. I have  afew of those doorstops myself. Mount it on the wall in your shop, and keep on going.

Hey, you never know... there might be some poor kid who wants to reload 30-30 that might want it off ebay... possibly...

But if the dies are rusty, it wouldnt be conducive to a harmonious outcome.
But, it might be worth a shot to give it a whirl on Ebay. I have been suprised selling reloading stuff on there before, with some stuff bringing great money for what I thought was almost junk.
