    Lyman bullet lube sizer! Now, what do I win?
    It is missing the handle for the lube cylinder and has no top punch or sizing die in it! Oh yea, you painted it the right color!

    Yep it indeed a Lyman lub and sizer.. A #45 to be exact..Got one just like that back in the 60's and it is still in use.. Must have run a couple of million cast bullets through the machine and it just keeps on doing it's thing .. Probably worth more now than when it was new..

    At least someone knew what it was. I never saw one myself.

    Hard to believe that almost no one knew what it was..Why back a few years ago it was an important part of the reloaders equiptment..If you didn't cast you didn't shoot much at all,there wasn't much to be had in store bought bullets..
