The handle on the old man's Lyman loader broke off and he's wanting to get another one so he can still use this old loader. Anybody know where I could pick one of these up at? I'll try to call Lyman tomorrow but I'm not going to hold my breath for them having parts for a 30+ year old loader.

Thanks,

Take the threaded end to a machine shop and get a piece of all thread and cover with tubing. I've got two of the old Spartans and understand why he wants to keep it. They could also just thread a piece of shaft for you. I think it's a fine thread 1/2", RCBS JR broke several years back and it was a 9/16" fine thread which is hard to find. Machine shop made me one for 5 bucks. If it just broke at the threads they can just thread the end and you wouldn't loose but about and inch in length.

Thanks Enios. Looks like I'll have to take it to a machine shop as Lyman said they are out of parts for that loader.
