1. We have added the ability for anyone to 'bump' threads that they have created. This is mainly useful in the classifieds area where posters constantly bump for sale threads to bring it to the top. This allows them the ability to do that without having to clutter the thread with extra 'TTT' and 'Bump' type posts. To bump it, go inside your thread and click on 'Thread Tools' at the top, then select 'bump'. You can bump only once per 24 hour period.

    For more detailed information please see this post: Thread Bump Functionality.

    I need a GOOD 12 ga collet for my Lachmiller sizer. I just finished redoing it, however it would not grip the rim of the hull tight neough to withdraw the hull from the sizing die and while trying to undercut the gripping surface on the lathe I broke one of the jaws off. So it is now junk.

    Looking for a good collet. I don't need a junk one. I need a good one.

    OK,,,, I got my new collet from Huntington Die Specialties and also got a new ejector spring which is significantly stronger than the original.

    http://www.huntingtons.com/ They have parts and complete machines for sale as well.

    The tool functions perfectly now and is a useful part of my reloading bench.
