Are you one of those people (like me) that want their cake, and you want to eat it too? When it comes to press mounting solutions, I want a setup that’s *both* totally rock-solid *and* super quick to setup and swap presses with. In this post, I’m going to cover a product lineup from Inline Fabrication called the Quick Change Press Mounting System. With this upgrade, you can have the solid features of the UltraMount press mount, and swap out presses that attach to the UltraMount in about 30 seconds.
Let me show you how this works in this video:
As you saw in the video, you get everything needed to convert your UltraMount to a quick-change configuration. Here’s the side-by-side showing the UltraMount in “stock” configuration:
With the Quick Change Base Plate, you’ll get the following:
- Quick Change Base Plate
- Base Plate mounting screws, washers, nuts (utilizes longer mounting bolts compared with the “stock” top plate)
- Quick change thumb screws
In addition to Quick Change Base Plate, you’ll need Top Plates for each of the presses that you want to use with the Quick Change Press Mounting System. In the video above, I showed both the Dillon 550b, and the Lock-N-Load Iron presses, which each required a top plate. These plates are specific to each press for mounting hole layouts and come with the appropriate mounting hardware for your press, but there’s also a “Blank Top Plate” that you can drill your own holes in for a variety of devices including bench vices, etc.
I like this system a lot, and have worked with Dan from Inline Fabrication to save you all some $$$ on this system. For a limited time you can use this Ultimate Reloader exclusive coupon code to get 10% off on ALL Quick Change Gear from Inline Fabrication:
