Anyone make their own Dillon 550 toolhead stands?  I'm thinking about making a lazy Susan type stand to hold 6 toolheads.

Anyone make their own?

Post pics if you have.

Good thing I counted, I currently have 8 tool heads so at a minimum I'll need to hold 7 tool heads.  I should probably build it to hold 8 or 9 because I want to get into a 6.5 Grendel and .300 WM.

Maybe two lazy Susan's each holding 5 ( 4 around the edges and one in the center).

Not mine.. but interesting.  Not $60 interesting, but here's one idea.







Same seller makes these, too... might give you an idea.











There was one earlier this week that was just the studs to support the tool head - 5 studs, each threaded for a mounting bolt.  Just add them to your bench, or a nice piece of oak/walnut, aluminum, etc.  That's the one I was looking for.

On that second link, it's worth it for me just to get the dillon from grafs for 23 bucks.  That way I have a shell holder and pin holder area.   First idea is kind of cool if it rotated.

Until the cat knocks the stand over and the pins end up on the floor, or in the drain in the mechanical room. Ask me how I know about the cat... LOL!!

LOL, cat.   Wouldn't own one but nothing wrong if you do.   Mine sit on the top of my gun safe in the garage.   Pretty "safe" area.

I'm now thinking of just taking a hardware swivel kit like This and putting an 18" round 3/4" thick oak board on top and mounting my existing tool heads to it. That way I can swivel it around but I still retail the shell plate and pin holders.

Just a thought, but might lay out your tool heads and see just how much space you need... then add another slot or two for future growth.  


 



The lazy susan is a pretty slick idea.

That swivel is exactly what I was thinking.   You can buy round wooden plates or cut yourself some hardwood circle for the mounting platform.

Here's mine.  Simple design that holds four 650 heads. Starts to get heavy and cumbersome beyond that with the trimmer motors.   Wood base with some delrin standoffs I turned on the lathe.

Sorry, I don't have a Dillon, but are they to heavy and bulky to just hang up?
