    Do any of you know where I can get a D handle for my MEC reloader? I have a 650 and I beleive it will take the same one as the 9000. I have never seen one in person only here on a loader that was for sale. I would rather buy one but if worst came to worst I suppose I could build one. Thanks in advance. Paul

    Thanks John
    I have never seen one. I have problems with numbness in my hands and thought a D handle might lessen that. Let me know how you like it if you do. You can use the private message on this site or this forum. Paul

    The above number is not a working number. I will do some research to see if they have changed it or they are just gone. Later. Paul

    The old guy (Irwin) is now about 90 years old. I had a conversation with with a gunsmith at Score High Gunsmithing in the same industrial complex. He told me he could remember when Irwin was making them. At the time they did not sell to well. So enough said till next tome. Paul

    It is the same street address. This is an industrial complex with several suites within 9812 street adderss. This is what the Gunsmith told me this AM. He works out of suite #2 I think is what he said. Paul

    UPDATE: I met one of our youth shooter's dads from this years squad. He is a machinist and a shooter also. He made me several D handles that will fit MEC, P/W, and Hornady presses. I will post pictures when I get a chance. Have installed a D handle on my Grabber and love it. Notice the HUGE shot bottle from Basic Design Machine on the shot side. With the D handle and the larger shot bottle, I am going to be forced to put on the 200+ primer tray since I now run out of primers before anything else. I don't even get tired anymore. LOL Y Handles M V, Y Bottle M V Omaha

    Check out the pictures on the link above. It comes without the OSS on the handle. We just did that for Feebay purposes. I have one on a Grabber and love it. Omaha
