Very nice setup. I have been considering making a bullet collator, this has given me a little more motivation.

MacTrap can you explain a bit on how you got the case feeder to work. I see you had to mod it so that the feeder tube is stationary.

I ... am ... speechless.

And that is VERY unusual. MacTrap, that is stunningly phenomenal.

Thank you :D
It is perhaps somewhat exaggerated but for me it works perfect meanwhile. I load all my 9mm IPSC stuff on it.

I used a kind of telescopic feed tube. The lower part is fixed in the cylinder plate of the press. The upper part is attached to the feeder. Both tubes silde into one another. The lower tube is just as long that there is about 5-10cm distance between tube an feeder when the press is in topmost position.
The electronic control ensures that there are not too many cases in the lower tube (max fill level is lenght of the tube).
I hope I've explained clearly :)

Yes you have. I noticed there was a tube on the bottom part of the feeder but I couldn't see if it feed into the top tube. That's easier than what I was thinking of doing. I had thought of a spring loaded plate to drop one shell as the ram was in the full forward position and close as it went down.
Thank you for sharing all this info.
