    Disappointed in Forster CO-AX paint job. *Update 11/2

    Just picked up a brand new one from Scheels. For a $365 press, this thing has the worst paint job of any press I’ve ever seen. Including the cheapest Lee presses. And before the whole “it doesn’t effect function” crowd. I get it. But for a top tier press their paint department sucks. Or the...

I dont know why I do it, but I have a habit of overtighting things. I had it on there plenty firm, but decided to...
