Re: New issues with reloading 9mm

If the primer trough is not contacting the two little bumps on the frame as the ram rises I would suggest that as a fix.

Re: New issues with reloading 9mm

The top cover of the primer trough should be level with the tops of the webs. You will have to apply some pressure (as the shellplate would) to check it. If it was sticking up as high above the web tops as you say yours is I don't see how your press could possibly operate correctly. Something has to...

Re: New issues with reloading 9mm

Check the small half-moon shaped shoulders surrounding the square boss on the carrier that prevent the case ejector plate from rotating. If they are protruding above the face of the shellplate, the nut and case ejector cannot hold the shellplate down against the webs in the carrier and it will rise ...

Re: Should I try the priming system?

If the lion is peacefully sleeping, I recommend not poking him.

Re: No oiling hole?

You can, if you are so inclined, take the ram out of the press and drill and tap a hole for a grease zerk. If you do this, I would recommend that you use a Dremel tool or the like with a 1/8" diameter ball cutter in it and grind a groove around the bore of the press from the hole and back to al...

Re: So I've gotten Mike's goodies...

Now that you have the shim thing figured out you can actually not use the turret locking screw as the five setscrews in the stabilizer plate will hold the turret in place. Because of this you may now "clock" the turret into proper alignment with the shellplate if needed. With the stabilize...

Re: So I've gotten Mike's goodies...

It appears if I understand what you are saying, that the top surface of the turret is slightly below the top surface of the press frame when the turret is pulled up against the locking lugs in the frame. If this is the case, when you put the turret stabilizer on and install the dies the turret will ...

Re: So I've gotten Mike's goodies...

Octopuss, Did you not get the instructions for the Turret Stabilizer and the Billet Turret? If not, let me know and I can send you a PDF. If you install the turret alone in the press and it does not have any vertical play then Mr. Lee's machining is the culprit. Imagine that! When the turret alone i...
