1. We have added the ability for anyone to 'bump' threads that they have created. This is mainly useful in the classifieds area where posters constantly bump for sale threads to bring it to the top. This allows them the ability to do that without having to clutter the thread with extra 'TTT' and 'Bump' type posts. To bump it, go inside your thread and click on 'Thread Tools' at the top, then select 'bump'. You can bump only once per 24 hour period.

    For more detailed information please see this post: Thread Bump Functionality.
  2. Attention: We have put together a thread with tips and a tutorial video to help with using the new software. Please take a moment to check out the thread here: Trapshooters.com Tutorial & Help Video.

    P.S. As of today 11/26/12-- I have sold the last 3 counters I had left in stock. The price increase is in effect now. As the above are the correct new prices.

    I have to raise the price by $2.00 to cover the cost increase in the

    actual counter. Sorry.

    I received three of Chuck's counters; They are really nice units! The counter is well made and is mounted out of the way of the index plate of a MEC. Chuck put a lot of thought and work into the hardware. I installed the first one in just a few minutes.
    I replaced a counter that sat right next to station #4, which was a pain if you needed to remove your hull for weighing, or problems.

    I am more than pleased with the purchase!
    Thanks,
    John Radtke (CREEK)

    Thanks

    No Sal, I don't believe there would be a problem since the counter works on the front side of the Loader. The counter will not interfere with the "Auto Mate" linkage which is on the rear of the loader.

    Greevsman,

    I actually built a special for your application. Yours is a special in as much as it took a larger mounting bracket to clear that large shot bottle. Thank you for your business and I am glad you are satisfied.

    I have a Mec 9000G with the large shot tube made by Basic Design Machine. I don't know if this is the same tube that Greevesman has or not. If you happen to know if it is, what would it cost to have one with the larger mounting bracket?

    Thanks,
    Frank

    As far as the MEC, keep in mind it takes 105 pulls to equal 100 shells. Unless you continue to load, you'll always be off by 5 shells each time you stop and restart. BT100dc

    There is a coupler in the operating chain. If you don't connect that coupler til there is a loaded shell at station 6 ready to exit the press, your count will be correct. problem solved.

    Any of you guys that inquired about counters for the RCBS Grand, they are now available. I put one on my Grand and it works fine.

    chuck,

    I have a perfectly good counter however the little piece on the right side that the pin on my Spolar pushes on to index it has broken at the bottom. Would/could you sell me that piece alone?

    Thanks,

    Just got my counter yesterday and it works on my Spolar as well as the other machines. As a matter of fact it is the same brand I had before but with a better lever on the indexing shaft. Chuck is a super guy to do business with and I couldn't be more pleased. If you need a counter contact Chuck and he will help you out.

    Best regards and Happy New Year,

    Mike
