Studying the machine, looks to be impossible to modify to case-actuated operation. Oh well..........

Greetings,

Dillon, there may be other brands, has a case actuated powder dispensing system.

One of the reasons folks have moved to the Star.

The Star dispenser is remarkably consistent. Especially with very small charges of powder. i.e. 1.25 grain of TiteWAD.

Cheers,

Dave

I am new to Star reloaders, just bought my first progressive. It seems to me if someone were to come up with a case-activated powder measure for the Star it would be very popular? Just a thought!  ;D

Kenn,   I think your 1909 birthdate is more plausible than the D&B reported birth date of 1926 which would have meant Elard was 13 when he joined Star.   Not impossible for a relative of CR Peterson in those days, but not likely.  I know he passed away in 1996 and had spent some time in a nursing home prior to that.

Elsewhere it has been reported that Elard worked for Star for 57 years.   That would line up fairly closely with a join date of 1939 depending of course on the length of time he spent in the nursing home.

Also spelled Ellard.

I noted a related family history associated with a Mary Hambaugh of Colorado where Elard was born.
It notes he was a resident of Sam Diego and earning a living as a machinist.

Bruce

Had found a listing of an Elard G. Mock of San Diego, CA, that was born 08/09/1907, and passed away 02/10/1996.

May be a different person, but not sure how many persons were named Elard. It is somewhat unique.
(Have also seen it spelled Elord)

Puts him more into the date range of the patent.
