A-Square tooling

Not at all sure if this is where this should be posted but wanted opinions. I recently purchased 1600 lbs of tooling that A-Square Ammunition used to manufacture their brass. They had a factory in Chamberlain SD and recently sold out. I have no idea what machinery was used with the dies and all I have are the dies. Anyone have any thoughts on what I should do with this stuff? I could just weld pieces together and call it art :-)

I was oing to say that's expensive at, but not really! It sounds like yu have questions about what you actually have..... Is ther anyone from the place you purchased it from still around to ask questions?
What was your intent when purchasing the tooling?

That's a funny thing I really just wanted the shelving and the containers that held the individual dies. There isn't anyone that I know of to ask about it but your right I have no idea what I have. Here is a link to the lot that I bought.

Definitely nice shelving.
Post up some pics and I am sure that someone with some factory ammo manufacturing experience will come along that can shed more light. Perhaps you can someday convert some of the tooling into more of a manual or semi automatic brass case press or be able to sell it to recover some of your expense.

Tooling

Send that link over to these guys, maybe they would have an use for, at least, some of it. Maybe you could recoup some of your money
