Two additional accessories for a Star - what are they?
« on: December 29, 2021, 03:51:21 pm »
I have searched all over trying to find the answer about what these two parts are.  They came in a box with other items for the press (small primer slide, decapping pins, etc) but I can't figure out the two that aren't the Primer Punch Bushing Screwdriver.

The smaller one has a threaded hole in the top, the larger one is solid.

They are the parts in a die extractor for a Star sizer.

Thank you very much.  I thought about the possibility that they were part of the accompanying Luber/Sizer but didn't see any info on that one either.

Very much appreciate your reply.

EDIT:  Now I see it :  the 5101 die extractor pieces.  The bullet remover was threaded in the wrong way.

Greetings,

The "tee" handle wrench is to remove the primer bushing when changing from large to small; or, vice versa.

Cheers,

Dave

Thanks, someone else on this board had called it the "Primer Punch Bushing Screwdriver" and I found that as #51.  The drawing in the picture from the original manual is much different.  Luckily, the estate from which I got these had kept all the original documentation and receipts, so I was able to match everything else up (including the extra 6 decapping pins the person bought and never used).  I was there for 45 ACP brass when they told me to take these too (Luber/sizer and the press in 45ACP).  Based on the documentation, this was bought in 1968 with some very minor usage and then packed away for 50 years.

I am very happy to help!
