    Not real sure but i had a pair of Lyman handles that i modified to fit the rcbs mold. Im sure you could do the same if it dont fit.

    Making a set of handles is pretty simple, if a bit time consuming, with basic tools. A bench grinder is a big help, in getting the metal ends to fit the slots in the blocks.

    Hi buddy! Nope, at least not the moulds I have; the Saeco is a longer mould block and the holes don't line up on the Lyman handles. You could use the mould block as a guide and using a drill press, drill 2 new holes in the handle about 1/8" to 3/16" forward of the original holes. Should work then. Or, grind a bit of a slot in the rear of the mould block at the handle location to let the blocks set back a bit. You don't need much! I have adapted handles to fit odd moulds by redrilling the holes or a bit of judicious file work. Emery

    drobs, from the number of posts accredited to you, you are are (or should be) a person who is in the position of helping a relative newcomer out. I find your response distasteful, inaproppriate, and offensive. Lighten up!!

    Drobs is referenceing James Lyle in his post. He is not trying to be inflammatory towards the new person. Just trying to make the new person aware of the fact that James Lyle does not know what he is speaking about. Drobs really is a much better person then his post might reflect.

    Accepted. So what would you do for mould handles if it was you Allen. I have used Lyman and Ideal moulds and custom moulds for over 30 years. Got lots of them. Thinking of getting a Saeco Mould. Would you modify a set of Lyman or go a set that was posted that goes for around $9.00?? How about sharing some of the knowledge that you have! God Bless and hope to hear from you.
