Hydro-Press Head Plate (top)
Hydro-Press Head Plate (top) Quantity in Basket: None
Catalog No.: CHP-HP

  Optional 1.5x12 alignment jig ($149.50)
The "head plate" or "top plate" is a steel rectangle mounted at the top of the press support rods, with a threaded hole for the punch holder (or reloading die or adapter bushing). The standard CHP-1 press, and CSP-2 Mega Mite hand press, have a 1-1/2 inch x 12 turns/inch thread.

  • Thickness: 1-inch
  • Width (front to back): 3 inches
  • Length (side to side): 6 inches
  • Mounting hole spacing (for support rod) center to center: 4 inches

Smaller threaded dies and tooling can be used by getting one of the many adapter bushings available. A 7/8-14 adapter comes with the press, to use standard reloading dies. But you can get 1-1/4 x 12, 1-in x 12 or 1-in x 14, and other bushings from Corbin.

Larger threads, or even the same size hole with a different thread, can be handled by removing the standard head plate and replacing it with a custom made head, having the thread you need for a special application.

Usually, these special thread head plates are not in stock (because there are so many possible sizes). We make them to your custom order.

The custom head plates are listed as "CHP-HPC" on another page. You can link to it below. If you order here, you are ordering the standard 1-1/2 x 12 thread head plate. This plate fits both the CHP-1 Hydro Press and the CSP-2 Mega Mite press.
