Yep did those as well. I also ground down & polished the raised "LEE" letters on my aluminum LoadMaster frame, so it looks like my Challenger Breechblock (they should do that at the factory), looks killer! In the photo you can see 1 of my 2 primer-vibrator switches (this one switches on at the up-stroke, on other side there's one at the bottom that switches on at the down-stroke), magnetic counter pad with magnet tripper, and blue LED no-primer warning light under the shell plate at station #3.
On a side note, LOVING and I mean L-O-V-I-N-G my 2 new Auto-Drum powder measures... maybe the best Lee product ever!!!

This is how I roll...
1) Pin-Tumble all brass (nothing dirty touches my press, ever)
2) Turret #1, Decap Only (using case feeder, typically 500+ cases at a time):
Station1: Universal Decap
Sration3: Case holder pulled back, brass flings into improvised paint roller tray
3) Pin Tumble again to clean primer pockets after depriming (no biggy with dehydrators)
4) Turret #2, Reloading:
Station1: Universal Decap (just in case I miss one)
Station2: Full length "U" sizing die
Station3: Powder & Flair
Station5: Factory Crimp

Just curious, but what does polishing the top side of the shellplate do?

It's just a smoother surface for the extractor to ride on, I polished the center hub area mostly and hit the rest just a touch. Cuts down on the amount of lube needed. Be careful not to take off very much material though, that could lead to a sloppy fit. Another advantage is it all cleans up easily. You'll also see I stamped the plates w/caliber for easier ID (have three right now), as the Lee numbering thing is not rational.
