I am about to install a Lee Case Collator to a Star Press
« on: July 24, 2010, 11:08:43 am »
I am about to install a Lee Case Collator to a standard (.38 Special, only) Star Reloading Press. If anyone has done this and has any suggestions I would appreciate any tips you have. I'll have to make some kind of bracket to hold the Lee (the press has the Hulme case feeder attached, so I am good there).

I'll be watching for any help you can offer.

I use Lee Case Feeder/Collators on all three of my Stars.  I have tried a couple different arrangements, and the one pictured below has worked the best.   I use the Lee case feeder for large cases for everything from 32 ACP to 45 Colt, and use the appropriate Hulme top plate for the caliber I'm loading.

Star, the original blue Press.  Made by machinist, not machines

rbwillnj;
Your set up sure looks well thought out and a very practical approach to the project. Did you fabricate the bracket yourself?

By the way, thanks for your response and photos. That should help a bunch.
