broke my Lyman 4500

Well, actually just one of the bolts connecting the linkage.

Thankfully hardware store had 1/4x20 half threaded of correct length to replace it.  I went with Grade 8 and plan to be a little less ham fisted.

Sizing these Lyman 429244s.

I ended up putting a heater on my Star lubrisizer.   It really cuts down the amount of force needed to size and lube at the same time.  If you don't already have one it's worth checking into.
