Lee Die Lock Down Tool


Buckshot Bear

Recommended Posts

Here's a really simple solution for those who use the black plastic Lee Die Lock Down Tools and who are forever (like I was) looking for them on a messy reloading bench.

I just tied some fluoro brickies string to each of them and now they are easy to locate.

Good idea. I keep mine in a plastic container in a tool box drawer with other “stuff”. They seem to want to be at the bottom of the pile when I want them. Maybe the cord will still stick up so I can retrieve them quickly. 
 

Thanks!

Oh, mason's or bricklayer's level line.   I get it now.  

 

OK, I'll throw you a "line" back - know what "555" cord is?  

 

good luck, GJ

Close.  What most people in the states refer to as 550 cord is this.

Genuine MIL-SPEC MIL-C-5040 Type III Paracord has 7 inner cords each made up of 3 strands.

There are several commercial variations along with tacticool designs that have things like wire or monofilament line added to the core.
