A very rare12B redecapping tool. No markings. Can anyone identify this tool? I have never seen one of these before. The decapping pillar has a spring loaded decapping pin operated by the lever at the base of the tube. The tool is made from nickel plated brass. From the style and construction I believe it is a British manufactured tool but it is unneccessarily complicated to perform a relatively simple operation. There are two screws on the upright part that could be where some other part fits?

A rare James Dixon & Sons climax loading machine patented in 1887 for loading 100 cartridges with powder. All these machines are individually numbered and this one is 781. Good condition and in working order but does need a little restoration and cleaning. The glass window is missing from the bottom of the front of the tin plate hopper but could easily be replaced as it slides into the channels in the hopper. A screw is loose at the rear in the wood. The machine comes complete with a 12B loading tray and a 12B wad board both marked James Dixon. This is very heavy and is only available for collection and would be too expensive to post overseas.
