According to the Dillon website, only about 100 of the SuperStar kits were sold. I also have a copy of the original instructions.

Or if you have a tool head with the 3/8" hole at the taper crimp station, I can drill and tap it for the 11/16-24 die.

You got a really nice press. One of the great things about a Star is that because they're built with quality materials, they really clean up nicely.  The pride of ownership of such a fine machine is indescribable.

Johnb, i am more then excited, I read this forum every chance i get. being a fabricator all day Iím thinking of ways to bullet feed and auto index. i like the ray vin idea seems kind of big and in the way? Maybe hook it to an adrino with servos.... i donít know thatís later first i have to get the stuff i need. Thanks for replying

Hello, Everyone

I am 28, a welder from NW Connecticut. Been shooting since i was 18 and reloading on and off for 3 or 4 years not that active, i was using LEE presses. 2 weeks ago i was talking with a friends father n Law about reloading and he told me he had an OLD press his father owned and had not been used in 40+ years and he would like me to take it because none of his offspring would be interested in it when he "kicks the bucket" (his words not mine).

The press is a Star Universal Pre 62set up for .38 spl Wad cutters with 2.5 grs of B.E. *picture attached*

Ive already talked to Bruce, Awesome guy very quick to answer email and picks up the phone. about converting it to 9mm as i have no interest in 38. later i would like to maybe do 45 ACP. just have to save up a few more Benjamins so i can get everything i NEED, then i can explore wants. 

Questions:
Is anyone local to me that has one up and running and we could chat?, show me around yours?

is there lube spots i should lube, when i tear it down and clean it?

Thanks for reading. i will be lurking around the forum for a while, looking forward to chatting with all of you.

Depending on your locale in CT, I am in Dutchess County NY, about an hour from Canaan area, same from Danbury.
Would be happy to talk and if in area, subject to my availability, happy to do a short hands on.

From the picture, the press looks in very good condition. I would suggest some minor dis-assembly (Same as swapping a head for a different caliber) and a good wipe down with a soft cloth and quality lubricant to remove trace rust.

As far as lubrication, you will get a lot of varied answers. I use a little graphite based lube to prevent friction, but do not over-do-it, and I do not recommend grease based lubricants to prevent buildup.

You should be able to get a lot of answers to questions, from the many posts on this site, as well as on the home page portion.
