    There's no mention of a Canadian warrantee shop on their site. Contact 'em.

    Yeah but annoying to send it back. Parts ordered and will be fixed soon.

    Email LEE a pic and they will send out a replacement part. I've had my LEE press going on 30 years and only had to replace one part IIRC and LEE sent it out to me for free.

    Well I guess I went blue face and beyond..All that force and it still twisted.

    All I can say about Lee is that I broke 2 of the unbreakable decapping pins.

    I did just that with a broken decap pin, and had 2 free replacements with a week from Lee.

    People like to crap on lee equipment, but you have to admit, they usually try to make it right.

    Maybe if they doubled the size surrounding the opening?

    A quick zot with the welder would attach the handle to the square block, that should stop the twisting.
    I wonder if welding the block into the toggle would help prevent splitting in future?
    Or, would the heat from welding just set up stress cracks?
    Install the handle with 401 locktite; it will no longer twist, no fear of stress from the welder; but you will need to heat it to get it apart in the future.
