back in the box it goes and will be on my table for sale at the
next show. My Lee's will out last me as I just turned 78.

That is in Western PA. Usually go there to a gun show with a friend from Meadville when I visit. West of Grove City and north of New Castle.

That's about how long I have been using mine. No creaks or cracks but the tray lid has gotten a bit loose.

You ought to try the Hidden Valley Gun Club's show. Mostly members cleaning out their old stuff and a few dealers. Have found lots of good deals there.

I was stationed in Pittsburgh (Picksburg) and lived in Monroeville while there.

Not me. Kills my thumbs. If I hand prime I use and Ergo Prime. It works pretty well. But most stuff gets primed on press.

Folks also need to be aware when buying an older Lee Auto Prime that they need to buy the special shell holders as well. Around $20 or so.

The new Frankfort Arsenal tool uses the same flat Lee shell
holders and the Lee's will interchange with it.
