Removing Turret on older Lyman T-Mag

A friend at work gave me an old Lyman turret presss. It looks just like the T-Mag II, but the turret is different. Does anyone know how to get the turret off? It's got a big slotted head in the center of a knurled ring.

Removing the terret
You may have an old Lyman Spar-T press if the terret leans at an agle.
Go to E-Bay and type reloading presses. There are T-Mags and usually a Spart-T press there.
The proper size wrench should remove the terret and all the parts under it.
