Re: Mod for powder return chain??

"Note: there is an option with this system that eliminates all chains." What is this option? I have that powder drum and I see no way to make it chainless. Not real sure what your question is. If you are referring to the Auto Drum measure, per its instructions, it may be run with chain re...

Re: 6S or 19S for 9mm?

Yes, modified 6S works just fine as mechanical centering method. Most just use 19S and move case retainer out to get proper alignment. I use a 19S with wire inserts glued in to hold case centered properly. (was much easier for me to do than 6S modification) I prefer a mechanical centering method ove...

Re: Is anybody out there?

I check this site every day almost. Do not login, just look. Not really anything to report other than shooting and loading. Being now fully retired every day is Saturday. :mrgreen: Life is good and LMs just run. I have to many of them now so might let a couple go, well maybe not, they did not cost m...

Re: Primer rocker arm not coming back up

Like said, LEE will warranty it. They also are charging just shipping on many parts these days, make a "cart" on their site with any wanted parts, go to payment page and it shows $0.00 for most/all parts and a shipping charge. This can happen if the primer arm is adjusted to try and push p...

Re: Primer rocker arm not coming back up

Do just like you said. Clean, clean, clean. As well as check for primer pin and pin spring being installed properly and everything real clean. No binding on primer arm. Look for cracked carrier, clean real well, lube arm with the smallest amount of light grease on sides and pivot bolt, test for func...

Re: Carrier adjustment .

I have never broken a carrier yet and I use a lot of "range" mixed brass which should/might have a little different depth primer pockets and cause additional force to be placed on the primer arm. Just lucky I guess. Knock on wood. I take a random piece of brass and seat a primer with an Au...

Re: Carrier adjustment .

Okay, I will take a crack at it. My problem is the nomenclature. So here goes a clarification. The flipper is the plastic piece on the end of the index rod which has a cylindrical "body", a top "leg" and a bottom "leg". Now, at the bottom of the stroke, handle going up,...

Re: changed carrier today

My guess is the press cost you about $1.00 per thousand rounds. Darn good return on investment I'd say.

At the current rate it will take another 9 years for me to get that many rounds produced on a single LM but it will interesting to see how it goes over the years.

Well done.

Re: Smiley faces when loading 40 S&W

When looking down from the top through to the primer pin. It appears that the pin comes through to the left side of the hole. Just a little. It is not centered. Sort of like the shell plate needed to go just a tad farther when indexing. Got any ideas about how to fix that. Mike discusses this on hi...

Re: Smiley faces when loading 40 S&W

The thickness of the rim, the top of which is held down by the shell plate to shove in the primer. This might change the bottom of primer pocket in relation to primer pin in the all the way up position. I always hand prime one case, measure primer set and then use it to set the primer depth. I do th...

Re: New owner needs help!

The 19S shell plate and 9mm have provided this issue all along. Some make a 19S plate with wire shims in back just for 9mm and others move case retainer out to center case on primer pin and have centrifugal force slide it out to proper location when indexed. I use a "shimmed" plate which i...

Re: New owner needs help!

Lee has been packaging the progressive "Really Good Buy" RGB dies for a while now. Same carbide three die set but no shell holder or dipper as they are not needed with progressive press. The frame ramp is correct and has been machined in there for a long time now. No lube or grease should ...

Re: Pro Auto disk with adj bar not throwing well

Degaussing is the process of reducing or eliminating an unwanted magnetic field (or data) stored on tape and disk media such as computer and laptop hard drives, diskettes, reels, cassettes and cartridge tapes. By rubbing a dryer sheet (I use used ones) it seems to remove the static charge on my pwd...

Re: Pro Auto disk with adj bar not throwing well

I do that too. I didn't know it was called degaussing. It really is not. Removing a static charge is much different than "neutralizing"/degaussing a magnetic field. In my former life (having to work for a living) we had to deal with a lot of static charges on plastic materials running at ...
