    This is a old reloader that my father used in the 30's has anyone seen one like it or used one.

    He had 100 of these brass shells that he would reload, I asked how long it would take, he said it seemed like forever.

    Sir
    I load,reload,and shoot blackpowder shells----the primer seater,wad starter,wadcutter,were all used for brass,and paper shotshells---the roll crimper(tool on the right) was only used for paper shells...

    The overshot card for brass was usually sealed with"water glass"(sodium silicate),or bees wax/candle wax--etc.

    And,yes---I do use the old original tools---I have complete sets for 10/12/16/20ga

    I've got them too, but that sure is a neat way to display them.

    Tom,

    Thank you for the info,

    I found all the items in a old power can.


    I put it on this board for display, next to my Spolar.
