Lyman spartan question

Inherited the above single stage press. Unfortunately the set screw on the piston meant to lock the shell holder in place is missing. anyone have one and/or know what the threading is on that screw?

Hoping to avoid buying 15-16 different sizes at the hardware store. Thanks in advance!

If I had to make an educated guess I would say it was a 6-32 but honestly I just don't remember what mine took. It may have been an 8x32.

Call Lyman. They will send you one, maybe free, or tell you what it is.

That would been the obvious thing.

FINALLY

FINISHED.

Found the right size screw (10/32) and did a lot of painting and detail work.
