CSP-2 Press Rod Extensions
The CSP-2EXT press rod extension kit adds another three inches of "daylight" or total space between the base of the press, and the position of the press head. This additional height does not change the press stroke (which is adjustable from 3 to 6 inches). It is useful when reloading long cartridges such as the 20mm, or for seating long .50 BMG bullets. In some cases, a special shell holder or priming tool might take up too much of the available opening height. The extender kit can give you enough extra space to accomodate special tools.
The kit consists of two carefully machined threaded rods, polished and deep blued. The rods have been matched for length to avoid any tipping of the press head, and to maintain perfect alignment. To install them:
Note: The CSP-2 press uses grade 8 hardened "aircraft grade" hex nuts and hardened steel washers so that you can secure the head with greater torque, without moving the head. This helps maintain close alignment during the replacement of the head. The Corbin CSP-2J Alignment Jig can be used on either the CSP-2 or CSP-2H Hydro Junior, or on the CHP-1 Hydro Press. The CSP-2EXT extensions can also be used on the CHP-1 or CSP-2H hydraulic presses. However, the CSP-2H and CHP-2 have a six inch full power stroke and do not usually require additional daylight or head to base opening space. Hand presses, which have a fixed stroke starting and ending point with a log power curve, develop full power at the top of the stroke, so position is more critical.
