Dillon 550 I need to pet one...
Hi all, I have a machine shop here in Anchorage, and I am making single stge diversions for Dillon presses.
I need to see a 550 in person to verify dimensions. Will bring specified beer.
Please drop a line to firstname.lastname@example.org, or call 562-6873
Artic Ammo on Palmer-Wasilla Highway has multiples and parts Iím sure you can get your math there. What is it your making?

I am pretty certain Dillon won't be wild about it because I can do an end run around their Big 50 pres with a couple inexpensive mods....as well as convert 650 and 550 to standard single stage for smll benches like most of us have...
But thanks for the tip, I will try to look them up tomorrow.
Oh, I donít know, sounds to me like it might sell more presses for them. When I was in Phoenix we made a lot of parts for them. They are business savvy folks, design and prototype it and they may well buy your parts and paint them blue.

I live in Chugiak, if you want to stop by and play let me know.
That was my first thought too, ďwhy for?Ē But I learned the hard way too many times that just because I donít see something doesnít mean it isnít there. So now I always wonder what Iím missing and get curious.
Well yeah. That's part of why I would let him mess with my Dillon as maybe I can learn something from it. It does have my curiosity running full tilt.
