Loading Data & Reloading Procedures / Re: Expander plug depth
« on: April 30, 2013, 09:16:02 pm »
No I think you're right. Seems like some of my brass were being bulged out in the process. I've since adjusted the plug so it doesn't extend so far into the brass.

Loading Data & Reloading Procedures / Expander plug depth

Is there any reason to run the expander plug any deeper than the seating depth of the bullet ?

Star History / Its for sale
« on: April 20, 2013, 08:59:35 pm »
Went to get a look at the Star 10th Ave location, and it's for sale.

Anyone know if this is the same building as the machine shop, or only the same location?

Star Reloaders / Re: Another new guy with a couple questions
« on: April 05, 2013, 06:42:00 am »
Welcome to the forum. I'm also a newbie here ,and the amount of information and knowledge here is really great.  I have learned a lot from reading the back posts and learning from others questions and answers.

It looks like you have a really nice unit....congratulations. I'll add to the list of people who recommend Bruce's work. I recently received a rebuilt Universal from him and it's better than I expected.

Best regards and again welcome.

What a great find. Interesting use of machined billet steel to replace the castings in the Star....

I greatly appreciate the skill and it takes to transform hunks of metal into a machine like this.

Can you summarize what you had to modify to implement this? A video would be great if you could post that.

Star Reloaders / Re: Advice for the n00b
« on: March 23, 2013, 07:56:09 pm »
Here's the new/old Stars.

First is a beautifully refurbished Universal in 45 ACP (Thank you Bruce). The Progressive is a Craigslist find (CHPD? Wonder what police dept that was/is?). It's in nice shape, and doesn't seem to have much wear, though it's getting a good cleaning.  

There's also a picture of a threaded "what's it" that came with the Progressive. Any ideas?

I'm really glad to own these!

I took everyones input and did ....both.

I bought a restored Universal from Bruce. It arrived yesterday and is spectacular....far better than I expected, and I suspect, cheaper than finding the parts and pieces to assemble one. I'm truly grateful to own this machine.

Secondly, I bought a Progressive off of Craigslist. It seems in very good condition, and since I own 4 S&W Model 10's and a Model 36, I'll get a lot of use out of it. It was packed very carefully and arrived with no damage whatsoever.

I'll post pics if anyone is interested. Thanks for your advice! I'll own these machines forever.

Star Reloaders / Was there ever a date code, or...
« on: March 06, 2013, 08:12:46 pm »
Did Star ever date code, or serialize their equipment? I guess my real question is there a way to determine when the reloaders were built?

Thanks

Star Lubricator & Resizers / Re: Index of sizer die P/N?
« on: February 25, 2013, 07:14:55 am »
Thank you, that's good to know!  I've seen pix of them electro penciled ... if they were frequently semi-custom made, that makes sense.

I have a lot to learn about these machines

Star Lubricator & Resizers / Index of sizer die P/N?
« on: February 24, 2013, 05:06:35 pm »
Is there a list of Star catalog numbers for the various die(s) for the lubi-sizer?

Thanks

Star Reloaders / Re: Need an adjustable powder slide
« on: February 13, 2013, 08:18:40 pm »
I see those on Ebay and they look nice.

Can you interpret the sizing for me? I don't understand what "0" and "00" etc stand for in regards volume

Thanks
John
