Star Reloaders / Re: Star reloader storage covers
« on: November 28, 2011, 04:24:37 pm »
I have been using the clear plastic, Wastepaper basket liners, they are cheap, reusable and do a good job. Just pull it over the machine, tear or cut a small hole for the handle to slip through, gather it around the bottom of the machine and stuff the gathered part into a nook/cranny and your done.

I have H&G molds that are 10 cavity, and Your right about them being heavy and hard on the hands and arms. But they do make a bunch of bullets in a short time.

Take a look on the web page I listed on My above Post to You and You will see that the 9mm bullet dimensions vary a great deal. from .354 to .357 depending on the
country, gun type, etc., etc.  There are many different so called 9mm's

38 Super Automatic bullets are .356 Inches diameter , that's a couple thousands larger than the bullets from Your Stash. They would probably work OK if You can get them crimped tight enough , but I'm thinking accuracy may suffer. My 2

A used Hulme Case Feeder Just Sold on Ebay for $193.59, and without tubes.  With prices like that, it might pay someone to tool up and make a few of them !

Star Reloaders / Re: Powder Hopper Thread Size
« on: September 18, 2011, 06:30:27 pm »
Doc
I must side with Dave , I measured all Five of mine and the thread appears to taper about 12 thousands over the length of the thread and under magnification has
the threads flattend as per the spec's for dry seal pipe thread. I also think Star may have chosen this thread to make it easy to start the threads when replacing the
powder measure, Also the threads seal without having to bottom out on a flange or other device.  That's My Two Cents,, Hope it made since.

Star History / Re: Lifetyme Dies - History
« on: August 30, 2011, 09:59:40 pm »
Hi Dave
I looked very closely at one of my Lifetyme dies and it was stamped "Pat Pend" so someone has applied for a Patent. Perhaps You could find info on the Die from that
source. It also had a "Oval with capital P followed by Capital K" enclosed within the Oval which could be a Trade Mark, again this could be a clue as to who made them.
Good luck in Your search.

Spray can of Carburetor cleaner with the long plastic tube on the nozzle, couple squirts followed by a Q-Tip.  WD40 also works, followed by Q-Tip
I lay a rag under the die to catch the goop that come out.

Here are the  Paint Numbers for some General Motors paint that comes about as close to matching the Star re loaders as You can get.

General Motors Paint, Dark blue, WA7349
 
You should be able to purchase this paint from any automotive paint supplier from touch up pens to gallon size or larger.

Hi Doc
Don't know the the name of the color, But it is the same as on the dark Blue 1988 GMC K-5 Jimmy.
I suppose a automotive paint dealer could supply the correct color if you gave them the above info.
I'll try to find more on this and be more specific on next post.
