Fairly simple: have the piston sized and adapted to the base, and die sized to fit and threaded into hand loader!
          You do know he's making percussion caps from soda or beer can strips, right (but with far less effort and stress - as well as far quicker - than normal by hand)? Only thing left then is filling them (this would probably help for that).
                                   Only thing I'm curious about is whether or not (by using the mechanical leverage of the press,) is whether or not it would be possible to substitute a sheet of thin brass sheet instead of aluminum.
