on top of the lube tube you should have a cap that is no more than a loose fit, remove it, the threaded shaft is installed through the bottom and is held in place with the piston, to remove the piston rotate the feed rod clock wise, instead if the rod threading in, the piston backs out. the piston is a finger locking split ring, something like a dry seal. after the piston is removed the feed screw can be pushed out the button, again the feed screw is similar to a headed feed screw held in by a counter sink hole in the outside bottom of the well and the piston.

the threader rod is threaded through the piston. it is like steering with a compound gear box, turning the rod clock wise would thread the rod in, because the rod neither goes up or down the nut (seal) moves up.

When the rod is rotated counter clock wise instead of the rod backing out (raising) the nut (seal) lowers and puts pressure on the lube.

"I do not understand how turning the top hex rod can put
pressure on the lube unless the threads on the rod work like
a screw auger?"


"Does the rod come out?"

Yes, just push it out the bottom

"Does the lube tube come off ?"

Yes, I don't

The lube travels through a hole drilled through the press, access can be gained when the set screw and bullet sizer is removed, with a wire, clean the galley then clean the grove that surrounds the bullet sizer die.

Life is easier when long fiber grease is not used.

ugotit33, again the only thing that holds the threaded rod in place is the piston/disc, if the rod can not be pushed out the bottom the piston/disc/nut is buried in the bottom and will not back/out because it has bottomed out.

Righty/tighty? Righty (CW) should cause the disc to back out/rise.


"Try not to take the rod out and it isn't necessary" if the rod can not be pushed out the bottom the rod can not be pushed out the bottom the think that looks like the bottom and is rotating with the shaft is the piston, if the piston locks onto the shaft after it hits bottom the finger locking seal can get crushed.
