    Very good. Normally I make what I can. Never though about the trickler!

    re post #30

    You lost me..... What does a couple of shell holders and a trickler have to do with the cost of a bullet puller???

    I made something that does the same thing out of some 1/4 inch aluminum in about 1/2 hour. In other words, make your own version. :)

    I guess you will have to draw a picture.;)

    I'm failing to see how a shell holder and a trickler can replace a bullet puller....o_O

    They were just examples of diy projects just like the puller could be. Here's the picture. :)

    image.jpeg It can have lots of looks. In this drawing the pivot hole is probably too close to the left edge.

    Even I could make one of those with a bandsaw and piece of flat aluminium.

    Thanks! Now it's clear.
    I was having trouble with why you were showing a loading block/dribbler when the discussion was about bullet pullers......

    (Still won't pull my deep seated wadcutters.:p)

    image.jpeg Not sure if it would work as well but if you went to a pawn shop and pick up and old wire crimper/stripper for a buck, clamped it closed and drilled your holes it would be the same idea.

    May not work as well because it wouldn't lay flat.

    So what is the pivot hole pivoting around?

    It just allows the two arms to flex so that you can grip the bullet. It doesn't really pivot, it just gives a bit.
