Ideal Reloading Tool
The Ideal diamond crimper, the successor to the well-known Spangler closer, has frames, cranks and levers made of semi-steel castings. The lever is furnished with a pivotal crucible steel grip, making it a practical straight line feed for standard length of shells. The improved crimping-head permits the use of interchangeable pins, to form the square and round crimp. Sportsmen who use a single-shot rifle and do not desire to crimp their shells, but seat the bullets in the barrel in advance o? the shell, will f nd the Ideal re- and de-capper a most handy tool. It opens on the side. The die "A" rests upon a perfectly machined seat, and is held in place with the screw "C." The de-capping plug "B" is also interchangeable, being securely held by the knurled set screw "C." Re-capping dies and de-capping plugs for any caliber from .22 to .50 can be furnished to fit the same tool. The levers are polished and nickel-plated. The implement weights complete but five ounces. The Ideal "straight-line" de-capper will de-cap and re-cap all shot-gun shells with a central fire hole, brass or paper, domestic or foreign make, whatever the inside shape may be, high or low base. It will seat any and all sizes and shapes of primers, straight in the pocket of the shell, positively all the same depth, without concaving the head, or disturbing the fulminate, which causes miss-fires.
