Neat set up.

If it happened on two different Star machines then it might be external like humidity? For Star made a lot of good points. I would run a dryer sheet thru all of the powder delivery components. I have never had that happen in 250,000 rounds of loading on my Star.

Like Dave I always remove powder from the hopper after reloading. I also shake the container of powder before filling the powder hopper. Never had anything but perfect loads thru my Star in 250,000 rounds. My hopper has a Star baffle.

Would love to see shop photos of Star. How about Bruce with some photos of your shop and Dave wilson also.

Forgot to mention my Star is fully equipped with all MA System attachments including bullet feeder, case feeder, shell plate rotator and eject- ease.  All primers were perfectly seated and never a squib load or double charge.

I've loaded 250,000 rounds on my 1986 Star and the only broken part was a primer slide spring. The machine still looks new because I deprime and resize on a Dillon 550 with a case feeder to reduce wear on the base of the Star from burnt powder residue.

Do a search for Bruce Williams he now owns Star Machine Works. He has everything you will need. Dave wilson will make any set of dies you need.

I think the price was low being in that condition.

I've loaded 250,000 rounds on my Star Machine and have never had a primer issue meaning perfectly loaded primers every time. Both Star and Bruce's followers are works of art. They were designed as Bruce stated ,and I am always very careful lowering the rod with both hands.

That does not appear to be a Star base.

Star Reloaders / Re: Hulme Case Feeder Plate M-2
« on: September 04, 2015, 01:59:40 pm »
In 1986 the Hulme case feeder that I purchased with the machine from Star in .45 Auto came with a M3A plate and came with this note. To change caliber of feeder to .45 Auto., .38 Auto., or .45 Auto Rim reverse the Selector Plate end-for-end on either the Mark3 or Mark3A.

Call Bruce Williams at (908)-750-6312 he is the owner of Star Machine Works.

Star Reloaders / Re: Protective shroud around primer tube?
« on: April 20, 2015, 01:04:09 am »
This is from Handloader Oct.1992. Elard Mock recommended after testing, a protective mild steel seamless tube that slips down over the brass primer magazine tube as
 far as the knurled ferrule. It's dimensions are 7/16-inch O.D. x .049-inch wall x11-3/4 inches in length. Also a,stainless steel protective collar encloses the primer magazine socket with dimensions of 1/2-inch O.D. x.028-inch wall x1-1/16 inches in length. the collar cannot extend higher, otherwise it would interfere with the tool head at its lowest operating position. Also, the collar may not clear the knurled ferrule in some cases of tolerance built-up. If so file down the knurled ferrule to fit.
 Hope this is of benefit to you.

Yes there is and I have made the adaption. I"ll try to hunt up the info.

Star owners are fortunate to have Bruce as the owner of Star. Parts are comparable if not better than original.
