    watch Craig's list. I know of one that's brand new in the box, and is part of an estate sale. It's the old one from Bananza, and has the older style priming jaws. Bud bought it and never used it! Anyway last I heard his family was going to put all his stuff on Craigs list. I'd like to have a couple of Bud's Supermag Dan Wesson revolvers!!

    -- I'm thinking on selling my other Forster CoAx press.

    I'm thinking on selling my other Forster CoAx press.

    All of my dies are set up for my RCBS press anyway.

    I'll take the Co-Ax press off of the bench - then clean and oil it - and take photos to post an ad.

    I'll figure a price on it...
