Star Reloaders / Top PLate
« on: April 13, 2014, 03:09:40 pm »
I now have a 9mm Top Plate made by Bruce (rbwillnj).  The machine work is wonderful and it works flawlessly.  This is a must have part for 9mm.  Thanks Bruce!

Has anyone, including Bruce, considered making a clear primer tube #34?  Clear plastic products may cause static electricity?  It's just a thought.  tt

Star Reloaders / Problem with the primer assembly
« on: December 03, 2011, 06:40:39 pm »
My universal in .45 ACP has been giving trouble for sometime now. There was a partial lockup or hitch in the area of the #48 Primer Slide Angle Lever. It would not pull through and if you felt the Lever, it was locked.  I would let off and pull again w/o problems.  Needless to say, this was annoying, so I finally looked at it.  It appeared the #48 Lever was returning too far against the stud in the housing (not numbered on the diagram).  I found a very small coiled gun spring and slipped it over the stud. This fixed the problem.  It couldn't be more than 1/32" spacer, but it was just enough. I thought about bending the stud but was concerned about breaking it off flush with the housing.  Anyway, I am in business. tt

We had Turkey Tetrazini for lunch, I hope that's the end of it!

Anyone ever see a .45 ACP headstamp of  "TZZ"?  Any information as to origin?

My second Universal in .45 ACP, came with a black #15 sizing die with the word "Perfection" on it.  I don't think it is Star and probably Phelps.  Any information would be greatly appreciated.

Star Reloaders / Primer Problems
« on: March 13, 2011, 03:49:44 pm »
I reloaded about 400 .38 Spl. and had three (3) stoppages at the primer station on my universal.  I don't know what caused the problem as I took the primer feed and set apart to clear the stoppage.  Small pistol primers were old CCI.   Anyone have any ideas as to the problem?
