I want to mount a RCBS powder throw on top of my Lee classic cast press to drop loads straight into Lee pour thru dies. Anybody tried this? I guess I'm going to have to make my own mount. The press has two threaded holes behind the die hole. does anybody know the size/threads of these holes?

Looks like a 10/24 to me, I don’t have a tap that size to try, could buy a screw that size and see.

I saw a tool at Home Dippy...a Greenlee hand tapper...at least 4 sizes-looks like a screwdriver...will screw into the threads or re-tap bad ones to the next size up....in the electrical dept....may help....

Yea Wiz, I've run across a few that look like they may work, I just hate fork'n out $$$ on maybes. I'm working on a design that will swivel, so I can turn the spout over to drop an occasional charge in a pan for weighing. I'll post some pics when I get it set-up.

Drum Roll Please!!! Introducing The Latest Gadget From Deadeye Engineering!!! :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :mrgreen:

"The Drop A Load"!!!!

Here she is folks mounted on my Lee Classic Cast Press & supporting my Little Dandy Powder Throw Steady as a Rock over my Lee Powder Through Expanding Die in .44Mag. But please folks hold your applause untill the end.

Here she is in Swivel Mode ready to "Drop A Load" in the pan for weighing.

I made her from just an old piece of 3/16 thick X 1 1/2" wide X 6" long (was going to cut it to just what I needed but then thought what if I wanted to add something else later) piece of plate steel I had laying around. Then off to Home Depot for a piece of 3/8" allthread, 4 nuts & washers. I found 2 10-24 (XLCH was correct) hex head screws & washers in my "Left-over nut & bolt can". The rest of the project was just a little Measure'n & mark'n then off to the drillpress. The top plate is just the standard RCBS flat mount with one of the small holes drilled out to accept the allthread. All total time wise it took me about 4hrs. including Hunt'n, digg'n & H.D. Out of pocket cost was $2.06. And I just love that I made it myself!!! :D :D :D
