Title: NOS Universal
Post by: JTR on June 16, 2017, 12:40:30 AM
Just picked up a NOS Universal packed in the original box with newspapers dated April 1978. It was quite a thrill to pull out and look over, brand new never used.

I have one Star set up for 45 ACP I purchased from an older gentleman who was moving and I was new to reloading. He was extremely kind and generous and I purchased five cardboard boxes of various reloading equipment and many extras. Since then I've aquired a beautiful rebuilt Phelps progressive machine set up for 9 mm with an adjustable powered measurement bar and taper crimp.
I also recently purchased a very well maintained Phelps chambered in 38 caliber . Maybe 357 if I manually add powder or change the powder measurement bar.
Love the forum and thanks for sharing.
