Probably nowhere, I don't see many of them turn up in the classifieds, which tells you something...
I have been using one for several years now, replaced a very old rockchucker with it.
For swapping dies in and out what I do is this:
Take a spare piece of brass (I keep a spare "setup" piece in the die box for each caliber) and run it up into the die with the die set screw in the top of the press all the way loose. Now just barely finger tighten the set screw, don't even use the short end of the allen wrench for leverage, just he shaft. What this does is centers the die over the jaws and holds it there while still allowing it to float and produce low runout rounds. It also gives you a little bit more consistency when sizing because the die always gets the same "slack" in the vertical direction.
I sized some 7-300WSM cases last night, I usually push the shoulder back .001" on this brass and I did not have to make a single die adjustment. (Brass is annealed after each firing).
