I'm new to this great looking forum and I think I'll be able to get some help. With the way things are for all of us gun owners, I'm going to "graduate" from shotshell reloading to rifle and pistol reloading. I dug out my father's Lyman All American Turret press, dies, scale, case trimmer, etc etc. About the only thing I couldn't find was a manual for the press. I went to Lyman yesterday and they were NO help. The receptionist was very pleasant but she just referred me to the internet. Does anyone know where I could download or buy a copy of the manual? The Speer Reloading Manual that I found in with the press is #5 dated 1961. I guess I should update that too. Thanks for any leads or advice. Ed in CT
Welcome to Marlin Owners from a little piece of Heaven,Sullivan County, Pa.
I also need a manual and some parts for mine, but can't find any. Yes, you should update the Speer manual.

Welcome to MO! I also have a Lyman All American turret press. First thing I did was order a Lyman shell holder adapter from Midway. I wasn't keen on the old Lyman style, but now it will accept any standard shell holder. The press is pretty self explanatory, but Cornell Publications (just google it) makes reprinted manuals for guns and related items going way back.
