    Got a Tanner mold on order and was planning on using some Lee handles from some molds I have. However,I noticed they are held by some sort of pin and not screws. After reading I found I need the large Lee handles. Got those ordered and was wondering what screws I need to get to attach them . Thanks!

    The regular Lee mold handles are pretty much permanently attached. Tanner's site doesn't show the attachment point on their molds but I would assume they supply the screws. Why not simply contact them and ask? Their contact info is on the site.

    Tanner molds have slots in the side of the molds for handles. They also come with screws to secure the handles, (at least the two molds I have did). You may have to re-tap the handles to match the screws provided, or supply your own screws.

    I have several Tanner moulds and they all use the same set of (swapped about) Lee large handles. The moulds come with the screws and they pass through the Lee handle holes to engage with the threads in the mould on the other side. No problems.
