Vintage reloading equipment I’m curious if any of this worth anything as collector it

Wanted a few things but had to buy the whole lot
It all still works fine most of it is from the 50’s could take more pictures if that would help Wasn’t sure where the best place was to put this mods please move if you think it would be better in the reloading form

The powder drop is an rcbs & has a metal top

Fill up your tank and get a box of 308’s for 39 cents how things have changed

I think you have a CH press and some models used propriatary shell holders. Don't know if the dies were propriatary for that press thread pitch or not. It looks as though you have both RCBS and CH shell holders displayed in the photo.

If it suits your specific caliber reloading needs and you have room for it, use it. The press looks hellforstout.

Just guessing, lots of water under that bridge. Try it.

That press is sure beefy doubt if it would be possible to wear it out
I didn’t need another single stage but that thing is so stout I might sell my rcbs and keep this one instead
It takes regular dies and has an adapter on it to use the regular shell holders
I was wondering what the other shell holders went to thought he might have had more stuff he forgot about but they are all for the press
I bought it for the dies steel 38/357 and a set of 308 to neck size only brass and the trimmer but after cutting ¼ off of two.556 that I made into 7.62x25’s was enough need to get a lee guide or something else that I can use with a drill
Could have bought just what I needed cheaper but got all of it for $125 seemed like a pretty good deal
Hopefully I can sell some of this so that I didn’t get it all just for a couple of sets of dies

I have a CH press also but mine is a 3 stage, takes standard dies and shell holders. But CH doesn't have a primer feed for mine. I believe you got a decent deal, I have seen the 3 stage CH press go as high as $170.00 for just the press alone on ebay.
