Do have any idea of what it was called?Not long ago I was searching "ebay" for turret presses. As I recall there was one or two either the same or similar for sale. One had the handle and the other was missing the handle for rotating the turret.
Once I find some info, I will ask my friend if he wants to part with it.Beautiful piece of American history right there if you ever decide to move it along to someone else who will appreciate it for years keep me in mind.
I attempted another Ebay search but no luck.Do have any idea of what it was called?

RE: Post #9 and #12:A friend has a similar turret press . It's handy . It's a Texan turret press .
I have an old Herter's press , it will accommodate RCBS dies , and I bought an adaptor to use RCBS shell holder .RE: Post #9 and #12:
I think I recall a reference to a Texan Press. After a little search just now there are pictures that look very similar to the one in the OP. It may have two different size holes for dies to accommodate the different thread sizes available in the 50's and 60's! I think Herter's dies and shell holders may have been different. (Than RCBS!)
I did a search & it took me to E-Bay but it was not shown. It is indeed the one below.Texan turret press
Progressive Boat anchor indeed. :smile2:It's also an overly complicated boat anchor.
Yep, that looks like a press we would make here in Texas.
