Hi:
Came into a Lyman Easy Reloader. Like many of these it is missing parts.
Specifically, I need the wad insertion tube and the crimp starter.
I should be able to modify a working crimp stater using one from another maker.
Some idea of size would help.
The crimp starter is another story.
I have a lathe to make the aluminum tube, but need inside and outside dimensions.
Anyone have one of these machines and can accurately measure the crimp starter tube?
Thanks

I have one in 20ga.

I threw it all in the scrap pile just yesterday. I think it was complete, but I didn't sort through all the parts that came with it.

You can have it all and measure it yourself if you pay shipping.

So, not sure what gauge your question is about but I have some old reloaders and the crimp tubes measure as follows:
20 ga ID .695"/OD 1.065"/.185" wall thickness aluminum
12 ga ID .805/OD 1.015"/.105" wall thickness plastic

There are a number of forum privileges you won't have until you participate in some threads with meaningful posts. It's one of the rules that keeps the quality of trapshooters forum very high.

Read the forum rules, and don't get in a hurry and post a bunch of nonsense. Welcome to ts.

It was 12 gauge. I have seen 3 in shows over the last year or two.
The last appeared complete, but I did not examine it closely.
Cheap loaders do not sell readily unless in 28 gauge or .410.
Most people buy flats of 12 and 20 gauge on sale, rather than reloading.
I load black powder shells in 12 gauge because I cannot buy them locally.

I'd never seen one until I got the one I just tossed. It came to me as part of a package deal - to me, it was not worth the cost of shipping. The bushings seem to be a bas***d size - not like p-w or hornady.

I got 8 or 10 bushings with it, most are made of steel.

To someone who wants to load a few turkey loads, experiment, or low volume whatever - it's a bargain. It will work as well as any single stage.
