The Deluxe is aluminum vs cast iron, has an vertical opening a full inch shorter than the Clasic, does not handle spent primers nearly as well and has a linkage that is not as strong.
The old handle, maybe. Lee upgraded the handle and linkage
of the Pro 1000 and the other turret press. That's plenty strong.
