Cylinder reloading press
« on: October 17, 2013, 06:05:33 PM »
Been thinking about this for a while, so cobbled up this press. I have two snubbies, Colt and Remington, so made loading rods for each.

"Cobbled", my foot! That looks like a well-thought out piece! Far better than the cheesy junk that Cabela's calls a cylinder loader.

Thanks! Lets just say that if I make another one, I will have a better idea of how things should progress.

You should make a few and put 'em up for sale here, Emery.

Thanks for the offers; if I do make some, it won't be for a while, and I would have to make some jigs.....Too labor-intensive to build them like I did mine.
