I got the Idea from a picture posted by FC60 on the forum. I tried it on one machine and it worked so well that I decided to change them all. they work well with all the cartridges that I'm set up to load, .38 spl, 357 mag, 40 S&W, .45 ACP, 44 spl and 44 mag. I have four machines and one extra head. and they work well with a taper crimp die in the last station.

Good Shooting

I used a Dremal grinder with a cutoff wheel to carefully cut away the railing on the base and then finished up with a file to remove material down to and flush with the base floor. (see Pic's)
Then drilled a hole slightly larger than the wire about 3/4 inch into the rail for the wire, (located as seen in the pic's)
Drilled and tapped a hole into the side of the rail to secure the wire in place with a 6-32 set screw.
Shaped the wire as shown, tested, re-bent the wire slightly until Cartidge exited properly.

I have modified four machines so far and have had no issues with thier operation.

Hope this  helped

You prob. know about this site, but if not, go to (http://stevespages.com/page8d.htm) This will give you dimensions of the 9X21 case and several hundred others.
the 9X21 is near the bottm of the page in the metric area.

The .38 special shell plate can be used to load 40 cal.  Although I could have used the .38 shell plate as is, I slightly modified the top of the opening where the case
slides into it by grinding a very slight bevel to allow more room for the case extractor groove to fit. I did this with a round stone on my dremmal.

Thanks for the info.
I wasn't aware that 9mm would work for the 40 cal S&W , but if it will thats a good thing.
If someone has a shell plate in 9mm they can spare please let me know By Email.

(found One)
Shell plate .40 S&W ACP
I'm thinking about changing one of my Star Universal's from .45 ACP to 40 S&W and could use a Shell plate in 40 caliber.
If someone has one to spare, perhaps we could do some trading. I have a complete M-A Systems Eject Ease with all Instructions,
A complete M-A Systems Roto Ease with all instructions, Misc. replacement parts, etc, etc. Prefer to trade but if the price is right,,, Cash.
Please let Me Know.

Could You post some pictures of Your Star loader, it would help to identify the exact model and assist in determining a value.
