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.

    This was sent to me (photo only) as a possible buy for a guy. I told him in mint condition after a rebuild, it might bring $400.

    Owner must live near the ocean. Loader was probably in the ocean at one time.

    Boy, he sure hurt my feelings. He called me a "smart-ass", wa, wa, wa!

    Have to agree with Jim Skeel, it must have been IN the ocean. Poor guy who bought it, although I doubt it sold for $400, more like $4.

    Anyone know who the guy "William" is? Hope he doesn't lurk here.

    I rebuild these rhings as a hobby. In fact pw asked me if I was interested in being a repair shop for them since they have none in this area. 400 $ really?? I see 2 issues with this machine. The primer feed will be locked up and the little hex screws will strip b4 u can get them out, even with heat applied to them aluminum block they r seated in. 2nd is im sure the powder and shot cams are corroded and lock in a fixed position which is a pain to get them out. Probaly 12 hours of work to get it reconditioned and timed. But 400 is a joke. 150 would have been fair. Imo

    Or a damp basement and it sat for several years withount protection. Buy a dehumidifer dude. But someone overpaid for it and was happy. So be it

    Give me 10 hours and I could have it looking like new. Would have to buy another wire wheel for the grinder though.

    It's been under water. Look at the mud on the primer tray cover. It has a hull feeder. It's worth some parts ,at the least.
