Stars Want to Sell/Want to Buy / Star parts needed
« on: April 08, 2015, 06:20:05 pm »
I would like to find an angle lever screw, and an extra large, and small primer slide, new or used for a Universal.

Please PM me here and I'll PM back.

Bruce will machine you a wonderful powder slide and bushing that fits tight and works well! Two thumbs up!

That's a very nice job. Do I understand that this unit is a Progressive that you modified to Universal-like performance?

Those look nice. If I didn't have one on my Stars already, I'd be tempted!

Good luck with them.... the case feeders are great

New member here from Canada.
I just wanted to say thank you for a wonderful website and a big thank you for keeping the Star Machine legacy going. I got into the reloading hobby late in life, but i'm quite fascinated by the Star Machines and with any luck I'll be able to acquire one so I can experience the ownership aspect instead of looking in from the outside. :)

Welcome to the forum .... and I'm and old guy who's new to Stars as well. I'm enjoying the ones I have now, and use them often.

I'm not sure what Star shipped in this small fabric bag, but it was fun to find it with a recent Star acquisition .

Thanks. I lived in Albuquerque and recall it just east of Carlisle Blvd on Central Ave (old Rt 66) on the south side of the street . I bought several guns there, and remembered it even at the time (30 yrs ago) as an "old school" gun store.

Sorry to hijack the thread, it's just that the world is a small place these days.

Indeed! Thanks to all who have helped me get my Stars running by providing parts and advice.

Merry Christmas !

I'm pretty sure Lee will still turn dies for the Star, though I'd much prefer getting mine from Dave!

Star Reloaders / Hulme feeder mouting hole
« on: December 14, 2014, 10:38:18 am »
Star brothers, what was the process when getting a Hulme case feeder in regards the mounting hole for the feeder itself. I had assumed all Star bases came with that hole drilled and tapped , but a recent acquisition proved that incorrect. 

Is there a template for positioning this hole or am I better off sending it somewhere to get the mounting hole machined and tapped? I'm not a machinist but I'm pretty good with tools (there's a dangerous combination!)

Thanks and Merry Christmas
