Ebay has clear acrylic tubes that will work, that's where I got mine. For .44 Magnum/.45 Colt etc. I use tubes with 18mm OD and 14mm ID.

I didn't know Inline made mounting plates for the Star, I can't find them on the website. It looks really neat.

I got it sorted out. I tried from another computer on the same network, and I could access the site. Very strange. I deleted all my browser data, and now I can luckily access the site again without using a US proxy.

I get a message that my user is banned. Did the forum block foreign IP addresses? When not logged in, I get a message that my user (Guest) is banned too.

Thank you very much.  I thought about the possibility that they were part of the accompanying Luber/Sizer but didn't see any info on that one either.

Very much appreciate your reply.

EDIT:  Now I see it :  the 5101 die extractor pieces.  The bullet remover was threaded in the wrong way.

I am very happy to help!

They are the parts in a die extractor for a Star sizer.

A forum member here made one for me a while back, and it works beautifully. I have not experienced that the powder drops change over time.
I might be interested in a couple more if you decide to make extras.

Bruce is invaluable to the Star community. His wealth of knowledge, passion and helpfulness is mainly why the Star community is alive and kicking. The Star brand could not be in better hands. I bet there are more operational Stars now than there have been in many years.

Contact Bruce Williams, rbwillnj here on this forum. I'm sure he can set you up.

Hey FOR_Star,
That's right, I purchased quick change plates for all my Stars. I believe Dan had the template already, or I sent it to him, I don't quite remember. But anyway, I like to operate my Stars turned a little sideways to easier seat bullets, so I drilled new holes. They work very well, I have no complaints. Dan makes excellent stuff.

I have been loading Hitek bullets on my Stars, and have had zero problems. You need to apply a little more bell to the case mouth than when loading jacketed or naked lead bullets in order to protect the coating. Here you can see me load some 44-40 with Hitek-coated bullets.
