Star Reloaders / Paint Match for Stars
« on: August 11, 2011, 03:56:32 pm »

I hope this helps Someone who needs to paint their Star Re loader
As I was throwing out some old cans of paint I discovered a pint size can of touch up paint given to me by the bodyshop when I had my "dark blue 88 GMC Jimmy" repaired after a fender bender. I noticed that a small amount of paint on the outside of the can was a very close match to my Star re loaders, decided to touch up a few scrapes on one of My Stars and after drying the paint was as near a perfect match as you could have.

Loading Data & Reloading Procedures / Re: Setting the taper crimper
« on: July 16, 2011, 12:44:13 am »
Ken
A re sized Case inside dimension is slightly smaller than the bullet, and when the bullet is seated/forced into the case by the seater die there is sufficient friction to hold the bullet in the case.  So the Taper Crimp die is only used to return the belled portion of the case back so that it lays flat against the bullet but not forced into
the bullet. (Leaves a ring) So You should only adjust the taper crimp die down just enough to remove the Bell. (And enough that the finished cartridge fits into the gun
chamber.) Hope this helps.

After a Hundred Years of Near Perfection, Someone came along with a bright new Idea to change something that didn't need changing, I wonder if OBAMA had anything to do with these small Primers ? Oh well, Just a thought.

Doc
Thanks for the Pic's. I'll have to get busy and get five of those ordered. I have been using plastic waste basket bags with a hole cut in the bottom for the handle to stick through. That works pretty good to keep the dust off the machines but no rust prevention.  Thanks again !

The Instructions for installing the Hulme case feeder has at the bottom of the page the following statement:

"THIS DEVISE IS LUBRICATED WITH LUBRIPLATE, KEEP IT LUBRICATED"

Star History / Re: Cool old picture
« on: May 15, 2011, 09:22:25 pm »
The Salt Shaker was probably A storage bottle for either grease or oil to lube the machines. it would have a cap without holes in it and an Ice Cream stick or rod of some
sort to get the lube out and applied to the machines. But , That's only a guess on my part.

Yes that is a cool old picture, Thanks for posting.
I'm still using a Saeco lead pot identical to the one pictured.
Appears to be a portable casting and loading set-up, perhaps for a police range, looks 1950's or so.

Could it be:   A roll/squeeze pin, with a cotter pin through the hole in the middle ?
                   Probable need a pair of Dyke's to get it out of there !   Anyway,,

« on: April 12, 2011, 05:44:55 pm »
I don't know if these tubes are an exact match of the original Star tubes, But I have been useing them for years and they work just fine. Thicker walls are also available.
They come in 6 foot lengthes but must be cut into 36 inch lengthes for shipping. Current prices are subject to change.   Hope This Helps.
                   Inside diameters are:
