Taper crimp die
« on: October 03, 2012, 12:55:54 pm »
There is a .45 tapper crimp die on Ebay that does not look like any die I own or have used. Also, it is shown with a box that says Star Mass. I do not understand this. Is it a shortened die to use with a round ejector? Is it a Star product at all? I am sure there are several on here that have all the info on this. Please explain. Thank you very much for your help.

IT will fit an older tool that had a small hole.

The last position in an older HEAD had a .375" hole. It was not threaded. Marden was a company that made an after market TC that utilizes that hole. I have an older machine with one in it.
