Star History / Powder Shut-Off
« on: January 21, 2021, 04:20:10 pm »
A old progressive press showed up on e-bay this week.  It has a Star metal tag on the outside edge ot the tool head. What was different about this machine was that it had a neat powder shut-off built into the powder slide housing. Had not seen anything like this before in the housing. Anyone else seen this before?

Star Reloaders / Changing a 45acp to 45LC
« on: December 27, 2020, 03:59:46 pm »
I see some dies for sale that have been re-stamped over the .45 acp and changed to .45 LC.  How is that done?
Not the stamping but the changing of the bore? Is that a hone? Or is it done with a super hard cutter in a
boring bar?
The carbide is hard so it must take a real hard tool to do it.

Star Reloaders / .223 Super Stars Conversions

If the .223 Super Stars Conversions are worth so much or costing so much how come we don't see more copies of them?
Are the links, the powder tube, and the dies the only difference?
Just saw a conversion on flea-bay and the asking price is 1850 dollars.
Seems a bit steep?


Star Reloaders / Powder Slide Housing Cover
« on: January 02, 2019, 11:52:17 am »
There was a listing on ebay for a tool head and the powder slide housing cover had a hole drilled in the top which looks like it would be above the drop tube. What was this hole for? Just a visual to see if powder was thrown?  Anybody else seen one like this?

Stars Want to Sell/Want to Buy / need Taper Crimp Die in .44mag
« on: March 31, 2018, 11:52:01 am »
Setting up a new to me machine in .44mag. It came with .44 special dies so I should be close to what I need?
Can I use a 1/2" powder slide or should I plan on getting a 5/8".
Any other problems I might run into?
The hole for the taper crimp is the star threaded type.

Stars Want to Sell/Want to Buy / Need Adjusting nut for a taper crimp die
« on: October 09, 2012, 07:04:28 pm »
Does anyone have a spare knurled adjusting nut for a taper crimp die that they care to sell?
I bought a die off of flea-bay and the adjusting nut must have been cut off off-center or crooked
because it sure turns funny.
Let me know.
