Fly Press Sizes?


Recommended Posts

Aha.  This explains my confusion perfectly. I should have expected the trade standard of "there is no standard"!

Thanks guys. Now, if anyone has one they want to trade for a case of beer, just name the place and I'll start drivin'. I hear they're awful dust collectors and I'd be happy to unburden you!

How to estimate the fly press capacity
Some fly presses have no number cast on the body.

You can make an estimate of its capacity by measuring the diameter of the screw.

See below.

Size 2 to 4     screw diameter 44 mm  / 1-3/4"

Size 5 to 8 screw diameter 54 mm  / 2-1/8 "

Size 10 to 12 screw diameter. 64mm / 2.5"
