    well as i stated in april i bought a 900 elite from hilltopper. i got the press home and looked it over. for a 15 yr old press it was like new. as i started setting it up i went on line to the p/w website. bad mistake. i called p/w and ordered a die removal set up- front shoot shell tube- a thumper- a counter- a new powder and shot reservoit and base-and bunch of other stuff. i am now on 1st name basis with tawnia and bruce at p/w lol . then i got on ts.com and found a shell feeder that goose2 had for sale and bought it. well i findly got all the pieces together. everything works and is adjusted. after loading on mecs for 36 yrs i found out this press is a whole new ballgame. now ive got to relearn on this press. you know ive got to get my rythym back. sooo as i progress i will post. thanks to ed-pat-tawnia and bruce. as jackie gleason would say-and away we go lol.

    I sold my 900 Elite and bought a Mec 9000G. What I like about
    the Mec is that parts are inexpensive and readily available.

    I like it when people sell their 900 PWs and buy Mecs; it puts more good presses on the market.

    to the Doctor......If you had a 900E with short dies; someone SWITCHED em!!..The 900E always had the hi dies around 2&1/4 inches (ruff guess)as for trading a 900 for a MEC because parts are available; thats good...you will NEED all you can get.............."run'em"
