Topic: New primer feeders???
Replies: 21

I guess I'll order a couple of new primer rigs, I was able to "straighten" the crushed one out well enough to finish.

BTW. I use my case feeder when loading .40, .45, and 223.

thanks,
Ken

New primer feeders???

OK, haven't been shooting for a couple of years, so the LM has been idle. I have the old white primer feeder, and crushed my primer slider tonight loading some 223. Couldn't get the primers to feed with the new slider and finally figured out that I had crushed a small and was using a large, so the p...

I just can't go back to a slower method. You pointed out an important fact about trimming. It's necessary to measure trim lengths periodically to check if the cutter or some part of the system has a problem. Amen to checking the case lengths. I probably checked half of the first 350. I finally got ...

I concur that it is a fantastic trimmer and very accurate too. But why not just crank the handle by hand? For me it is almost as fast as doing cases on the TrimMate with the Lee trimmers. I'm certainly not against improvements. Please don't take this question as criticism, but why fix what ain't br...

Update on the trimmer. I trimmed about 350 cases and had gained about .002". So I pulled the cutter out and found that the "lock" nut was grinding against the stop. I cleaned everything up and added a couple of drops of oil to the cutter, sleeve, and face that the nut was grinding aga...

Workbench sounds good, especially with the aluminum plate. Just keep an eye out for corrosion if you put it in the garage. I used a small window unit in the exterior side door of my garage years ago when I was making custom knives. So you are casting ignots for casting lead boolits? I've been lookin...

Fixed the last sentence in my previous post (the carrier is supposed to be aligned with the toolhead/dies, not the ram! :roll: ). Also note (for other readers -- Sparky already knows this) that you really do want to do the last part of the tightening with a torque wrench to the value specified by L...

I would keep it all indoors if possible. Humidity is going to cause rust. Yes the turrets are aluminum, the dies maybe stainless, but even if they are you will get oxidation on the aluminum. Also different metals in contact with each other can cause corrosion (can't remember the term). The press is ...

"motorized" my L E Wilson trimmer

I thought there was an adapter to motorize the wilson trimmer. None showed up on my internet search. So I was thinking I could make an adapter without much trouble. However I didn't feel like moving "stuff" in the garage for a couple of hours to get to my lathe and other equipment. I pulle...

When I removed the die from station 2 entirely several cases popped out of the shell plate at an angle. All of them had a crooked primer insertion, or didn't get a primer but a crushed one was left in the feeder. This slop isn't as significant with the large pistol primers because the larger primer...

There would have to some kind of stop on the "handle" side of the cutter or the micrometer setting would have to be reset with ever trim....rather tedious. I looked again and was obviously wrong about a "commercial" adapter to motorize the Wilson trimmer. One could easily be mad...

The Wilson trimmer can also be "motorized" by removing the crank handle and attaching a drill motor. God bless, CC You know i did not know this when i had mine or perhaps my older model was not capable. Oh well i'm still satisfied with my current system. I may have mis-spoke on that. I ne...

I probably can't load 100/hr on my LM. But it shouldn't be about the quatity but the quality and doing it safely.

500/hr sounds to much like HARD WORK for me.

God bless,

I've also had the same problem and had to "deburr" the shellplate. Worst problem was on a 223 shellplate. Think their machining is off a little or worn to the degree it doesn't get all stations the same. "Nature of the Beast"???? Made me wonder if they cut all the slots with the...
