Never liked any Lee reloading stuff except the plastic dippers and the original reloading (neck sizer) knocker model.  Most was junk.

But I hate primes jumping on to the floor when depriming.  and the black carbon with that.

BUT I saw a Lee App press, seems to work great for just decapping opertion.    https://www.grafs.com/retail/catalog/product/productId/8287

Has anyone used these????

Yes on the dippers 
Nay on the rest

Agreed on all accounts Bear. No use for Lee dies. Only Lee tool I have is the hand primer. The progressive presses are chintsy junk. I have a set of dippers, I don't use them often, but I have used them.

Lee has some good products. 
I have a Lee Handpress which works great for decapping my BP brass prior to cleaning it using a Lee Universal decapping die. Also, the Lee FCD & RFC dies are good products. The Lee Pro-Auto Disc powder measures are a good product & I have mounted them on some of my Dillon presses. They work fine. 
Can't verify this statement beyond finding it in an old "cast boolets forum post"...
 As a matter of fact, Dillon pays Lee a royalty for use of their powder measure technology on every powder measure that Dillon sells.Oct 9, 2006
With Lee products you can pick and choose and get some good tools.Thumbs Up
