Ernie- I appreciate the link, but that is for the small hand held tools, not the BENCH reloading tools. The bench tools are heavy cast iron units, with a massive one for resizing, a slightly less heavy and cumbersome bullet seating tool, smaller depriming press and primer inserting tool and a powder measure with a large funnel. Total weight is probably cost to 75 pounds, and due to the handles or levers, and the box of dies etc about the size of the hand loading set you linked to) I am mystified how all this stuff was supposed to fit in the crate. There may have been supports or blocks or something, along the lines of teh butt and muuzle blocks in rifle chests, but I just don't know.
So, still looking.
