    Lee Turret press problem

    I love my Lee 4 stage press, but recently it stopped cycling with each stroke. I have no problem operating it manually; turning it by hand, but I would like it to run as intended. I can't figure why it is not advancing. Any ideas?

    I had a 3 stage Lee back in the 80s, the "ratchet" mechanism is made of nylon and wears out. Lee use to ship a couple extras with each press, if you don't have an extra call Lee they stand behind their product.

    +1 on the nylon bushing... it wears out, especially if you try to turn the turret without lifting up on the handle...

    I had the same problem, a little oil on the center shaft that goes through the bushing made all the difference.
