Cartridge Tubing
« on: June 24, 2012, 03:20:31 pm »
I have three Star machines; only, one short length of the tubing used for the cartridges. Does anyone know what is the tubing and where can I order some. Also, is the 45ACP the same diameters(inside and out) as the 9mm? Appreciate any help on this subject as the one piece is getting well worn. Does anyone know about a rig that looks like a funnel on top that you would put cases in while loading?

For tubing (one size fits all) for the Star you can call Ed Broadback in NJ  -  973 366 5988 -He has sold me a batch of five, I believe, and they are the right size for all standard cartridges in the star. The funnel thing you mentioned is a "freeloader" (I use several). Don't know who might have them. They work fine but require a different device to put on the  machine to make them rock back and forth. Call me if I can help you get what you need.  DDStraitwell  713 643 8834.  Love them Stars Let's keep them working!

Another alternative is to use a Lee Case Feeder and Collator with your Star.   I sell an adapter that lets you mount the Lee Case Feeder to you reloader.   The Lee Collator works in much the same way as the Freeloader in that you dump in handfuls of brass, and they turn bottom side down and fall into the tube.  The Lee case feeder has four tubes which can be rotated into position in turn as each is empty.   I used to use the Freeloader, but switched all of my machines over to Lee case feeders.

I supply the adapter along with an 11" piece of Hulme case feeder tube to connect the adapter to the Hulme case feeder.
