Star Reloaders / Re: Adjustable powder slide
« on: November 19, 2016, 04:55:00 pm »
Gentleman
I've been using both adjustable and non-adjustable powder slides for over 60 years on Star machines and have never noticed that one is better or worse than the other. perhaps I just got lucky and had quality adjustables ( mostly home made) but they were quite accurate and dropped consistent loads. Adjustables do speed up the setting up for a new Load.
I currently run five Stars all with adjustable powder slides.

Star Reloaders / Re: Adjusting Locator Straps
« on: October 31, 2016, 10:04:48 pm »
Hi Robert
There is a set screw that is screwed in or out to adjust for distance from the base and then a filister head screw that tightens the strap to the base.
Loosen the filister head screw and then push the strap against the base while adjusting the setscrew until it just clears a case installed in the shell plate then snug up the filister head screw. The purpose is to align the case correctly under the Die.

I may be wrong but the Indexer looks homemade.

Both units look very clean and fresh. Good luck with them.

If powder was left in the powder mag. for extended time, Moisture may have lumped some of the powder and stuck it to the recesses of the baffle and out of sight. Having some lumped in the recess after the old powder was dumped out and refilling and loading a few rounds the lumps are shaken off the baffle walls and caused bridging. I never leave/Store powder in the hopper after reloading a batch of bullets.

Star Reloaders / Re: Tool head die holes Question??
« on: February 16, 2016, 09:33:16 pm »
I have tuned down the larger dies and re-trheaded them to work on the Star tool head,, Much better to do this than ruin a tool head trying to drill out and re-thread the hole. It is very hard to drill the hole out and keep it straight and remain where it is supposed to be. Don't ask Me how I know this.

This is a pic of the machine to show how i raised it up to be able for the cartridges to drop down the ramp into a bread pan.
it also allows catching the spent primers into the red pan that slides under the deprime station. I have four stars mounted this way and can attach them as needed on the bench in the same place this one is mounted
