:t

There was a time I'd done it as I collected PMs. But now I'm more interested in consolidating and creating a more efficient work place out of my self inflected downsizing.

So are there any other defunct Lee tools you are looking for? As mentioned I'm downsizing and have a couple of now obsolete Lee gadgets that no long are required.
An ignorant person is one who doesn't know what you have just found out.

RanchDog, so you got it?? I see that someone grabbed it.
Was looking at the bracket and it mounts on two screws that thread into the bottom of it. The Auto Disks have the same mounting holes on the underside, unused. It actually looks like the base is the same between the two, just they added all the auto stuff to the Auto disk. Just pulled the trigger on an Auto Disk to give it a try.

Yeah, I bought it.

Kind of hard to know until I see something I don't have.

About the only thing, I've bought that I let go was the Pistol Machine Rest. It really doesn't do you any good if you don't shoot a firearm that Lee had the magazine inserts or grip replacements machined for. I used it with a 1911 and had a couple of revolver grips for it. A fellow saw it and offered me a bunch of money for it so it was gone.

Just saw this one, short amount of time left and it doesn't look like it has it's cap, 3 of the disks, box or instructions.

Lids should be easy to come by. I received a notice that mine was delivered to my PO Box in town. Probably will pick it up Monday. It's a 102° out right now and it is supposed to hit 105°, just don't feel like driving to town!

Finally pulled the Safety Disk out of the box. Cool item of the past and not much to it over the Auto Disk. It uses the Perfect Powder Measure stand and the holes that are on the bottom of the Auto Disk are drilled and tapped for the sprue plate screw used on the single and double cavity molds. The handle is unique to the unit as is the machined powder funnel.

You can see that I plan on using it with the Micro Charge Bar.

It also has a stop screw that is not on the Auto Disk. It keeps you from over extending disk from the body.

Would love to have one of these, makes load development even easier, when you can use the actual measure you'll be using to loading later on. Unfortunately the dippers and the cavities in the auto disk are not the same sizes. Never seen one of these to sell in Germany.

Is is "safe" to use the Auto or Safety Disk with black powder?
