Need help with Corbin swaging setup

    I have been asked to help liquidate the gun accessory part of an estate. Everything is pretty straightforward except for this, and I'm hoping for some help.

    It is a Corbin setup to use 22 rimfire cases and swage them, with lead cores into 224 bullets. There are 2 large swaging dies, 2 punch dies, and one unit that I think is used to cut the lead cores to size. I don't know how much to ask for this unit, but have been told that the setup cost many hundreds of dollars when new.

    There is so much on the Corbin site, I couldn't tell what dies these were, but I presume:
    1. Swaging the 22 shell into a jacket
    2. cutting the cores from lead wire
    3. swaging the core into the jacket
    4. swaging the ogive onto the bullet

    So I still have 2 pieces remaining that I don't know what they are for...

    Does anyone have any suggestions for a price, or is this kind of unit even of interest now that bullets are readily available, and reasonably cheap?

    Thanks in advance.

    The problem with that type of setup is that it is expensive to buy when new, but much cheaper used. Much cheaper.

    Not to mention the limited market.
