If I ever get my lathe running again I will make you all you want.

Give us some measurements and we'll see if any others are compatable.

Yes the diameter of the small section needs to be known.

I have lots of extra RCBS, and Forester pilots on hand, will measure them in the morning and post their diameter

Drop me a PM.

I have made several over the years.

I used my lathe.

But one can ever use a drill press and file if one has the time.

The RCBS pilots I have are a 5/32" ( .155" ) diameter stub.
While the Forester pilots I have are a 3/16" ( .186" ) diameter stub

If you only need one, you can make it yourself on a drill, file and sand paper.

That is how we made things we needed before we got a lathe.

Breaking out the caliper. They measure .190 diameter.

Close enough to Foster (should have thought of this--which i have)
