Does your press have a dangle?

That is, do you let several beads of the bead chain hang below the bell shaped clip under the powder measure like Lee shows? The purpose is to let the extra chain act as ballast to that the chain does not ride up with the carrier on the upstroke. I never saw a need for the counter weight until I sta...

I used to use a boolit feeder, but even then it seemed like almost as much trouble to load the feeder as it was to simply hand feed. It would work well with my .45 Colt ("long Colt") rounds using Ideal 454190 or Lee 452-255-RF cast boolits. Then I had a specialty boolit mold made to my spe...

You can keep it from backing out by wraping a layer or two of Tefelon plumber's tape around its threads. How's that for easy?

Impressed with the unofficial manuals

I really am impressed with the fine work you folks have done in preparing the video supported and PDF version of the unofficial manuals. It’s a shame more new and prospective owners are not aware of them. I bet it would raise those dismal consumer ratings the LoadMaster gets on Midway USA and such. ...

Agree with it being two issues. I've had the pawl arm of the case ejector get too stright to engage the detents in the shell plate and that allows the index rod to move the shell plate backward as you start your next upstroke. Goofs-up all the timing. I've also had the square part of the carrier get...

bushmaster; Thanks for pointing that out to me. I just did refer to the page 6 you referenced and you are right on! I went back and made an edit to hopefully avoid misinformation. When I first got my press, it was a second-hand wreck and no instructions. I called Lee and Patrick helped me set it up ...

Ya mean I should buy a camera and learn to use it? LOL. My last camera was, well, long time ago and it used stuff called film. Ahhh, maybe my phone could serve.

Thanks for the wonderful videos!

I enjoyed watching the intro and set-up videos. Very well done indeed. I wish I had them when I was getting mine ironed-out and when I was trying to help a couple of good freinds get free of the crushed cases and tilted primers. They went Dillon and I felt guilty about having referred them to Lee a...

Thanks for the welcome mat! I may have to try to figure out just how many years I have had with the LM (its gotta be 8 or more - time flies when having fun. Been reloading since 1976.

One of the oddities I noted in watching the set-up video (Darwin, that nice piece of work is your own, right?) was that the index rod was shown with the bevel down. I thought it should be to the operator's left ( I was WRONG) -- that is toward the little round "bosses" on the bottom of the...

Oldie, but newb.

I am a new comer to this forum; but have been runing my LM for quite some time now; time flies, maybe 10 years or more now? There was no real support group for the LM when I was in the frustration stages, but I evidently got 'er figured out. I will watch the video and read the unofficial manual and ...
