Never thought of using that type of arbor press, (the 1/2 ton). The picture in the link appears a little off. Does the ram come down in the center of the base? How tight are the tolerances? I have been giving the arbor press a look see for reloading and I just might have to give this a go. I will be going with Wilson dies. If this press works I figure I can get the press and one set of Wilson dies and base for about $167. That would save about $75 as I had it figures before.
