Indeed the Setscrew is  10X32  by 3/16 long,  In the distance from where I measured it, to my computer keyboard it somehow changed from a 10 to an 8.

The two Screws are common hardware items and should be available from any good hardware store.
The setscrew for the locating strap is a 8X32 slotted setscrew about 1/4 inch long.  Most setscrews made today are allen head.
The one that holds the handle on is a square head bolt 3/8X16 about 3/4 inch long.

Not saying this will cure Your primer problem, but one of my machines started doing that once and I found A simple cure by running a cleaning patch soaked with a little Hops through the primer magazine tube, followed by a couple dry patches. I now make that a regular part of my maintenance.

Star Reloaders / Re: #74 Thrust Nut Clamping Screw

I had a problem of with the slots on the #74 clamping screws getting buggerd-up , went to the local Hardware store and picked up a 6-pack of Socket Cap Screws,
1/4"- 28 X 3/4 , ( $0.69 ) The head will not fit the the hole in the trust nut but its a simple thing to correct,  I chucked the screw into my drill press, took a file to
the head  of the screw and turned it down to fit the hole.  now I can  use an allen wrench to tighten the nut in place. Took about five minutes. works great !
That's My bit of trivia for today, hope it helps someone.

Star Reloaders / Re: ALUMINUM POWDER MEASURE
« on: March 03, 2011, 10:16:20 pm »
Anodizing, or anodising in British English, is an electrolytic passivation process used to increase the thickness of the natural oxide layer on the surface of metal parts. The process is called "anodizing" because the part to be treated forms the anode electrode of an electrical circuit. Anodizing increases corrosion resistance and wear resistance, and provides better adhesion for paint primers and glues than bare metal. Anodic films can also be used for a number of cosmetic effects, either with thick porous coatings that can absorb dyes or with thin transparent coatings that add interference effects to reflected light. Anodizing is also used to prevent galling of threaded components and to make dielectric films for electrolytic capacitors. Anodic films are most commonly applied to protect aluminium alloys, although processes also exist for titanium, zinc, magnesium, niobium, and tantalum. This process is not a useful treatment for iron or carbon steel because these metals exfoliate when oxidized; i.e., the iron oxide (also known as rust) forms by pits and flakes, these flakes both fall off as well as trap oxygen-bearing moisture, constantly exposing the underlying metal to corrosion.

Anodization changes the microscopic texture of the surface and changes the crystal structure of the metal near the surface. Thick coatings are normally porous, so a sealing process is often needed to achieve corrosion resistance. Anodized aluminium surfaces, for example, are harder than aluminium but have low to moderate wear resistance that can be improved with increasing thickness or by applying suitable sealing substances. Anodic films are generally much stronger and more adherent than most types of paint and metal plating, but also more brittle. This makes them less likely to crack and peel from aging and wear, but more susceptible to cracking from thermal stress.

The Lever sticking out there is part of a M-A Systems  ROTO EASE  Indexer.  And is the only part of the indexer that mounts on the star machine.
The rest of the Indexer mounts on the bench next to the star.  perhaps the PD still has the rest of the Indexer laying around somewhere , I think I would be asking !

Loading Data & Reloading Procedures / Re: How to set dies

Don't know how other folks do it, but I adjust my resizeing die down to almost touching the shell plate with mabey five thousands of an Inch clearance.
I'm thinking it may save some wear on both  the Die and Shell plate, It works for Me, but Others here may have different methods.

I suggest You continue without change,  I look forward to reading Your updates as it contains good info, and I'm sure Others would agree.  So as far as I'm concerned,,, continue to march.

Another plus for this machine is that it is drilled and tapped for a taper crimp die in the last station, which may be a handy thing to have if you need it. It appears to have considerable amount of rust but a little elbow grease will take care of that.

Star Reloaders / Re: Plug part number 68
« on: November 12, 2010, 09:53:05 pm »
Don

Are You saying that the plug for the progressive machine is of a different size than the Universal  machine ?
I don't own a progressive, but do have the dimensions for the 68U plug:  0.747 inches wide by 1.057 inches long,
made from round stock.  with a slight radius [no e-mail]@ .005'') on the bottom edge (rounded over) and the top edge left sharp.
The plug could be easily machined from 3/4 inch round stock.
Hope this helped.

Star Reloaders / Re: Any interest in new star type reloader?
« on: December 29, 2009, 12:55:52 am »
MY 2 cents
I'd like to see someone manufacture the Star Reloader again, and perhaps  include as standard  the improvements that have been thought up over the years by the folks that reloaded with them. price kept within reason and the
quality as good or better. There should be  a good market out there. Put Me in line for one !

Something to think about:  Patent infringement.
