It's a So-Mar indexer. I think they are long out of business.  I have two working on two machines and bought the last one from Rich Daniels.  I haven't found an auto-ejector for the set-up and the finished round must be ejected by human finger.  I'm sure some one on this site will have one for you. tt

Star Reloaders / Top PLate

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

Pictures really help in pricing and save written descriptions.  There are many experts on this site that can and will give a correct estimate of what you have.  tt

I talked with Jerry and the mold is still available.  It seems a great price for a 10 cav.  tt
