Looks like a Lube-a-matic. But I've never seen one quite like that. It should have another tube in the back to hold the lube. Interesting though...

Maybe it's only a sizer and not a lube/sizer like most...

Maybe a single stage shot shell loader?

That was my guess.

Does a shotshell rim fit that recess in the base?

Single stage shotshell was what the gun shop thought also but we somewhat ruled it out as there is no place for a shell holder that we can see.

Single stage shotshell reloader , I am in posession of 2 of those , and use them.
On the bottom of the press you will notice a small set screw , yours may be missing , it takes the shell holder. You can still find them ( Herters type works) if you search.

They also have shell holders for many other rounds , they have an extrem amount of leverage ( have used one to full length resize a 50 BMG).

Can also be used for lube , swaging with the proper adapters. They are/were one tool does it all type.

Thanks for the lead on the shell holder.
I would be very happy to use this as a sssr. It is a prety nice pc. of equipment.
Also thanks to the rest of you folks for you insight. This is what makes this forum a nice place.
