    the old grabber has old primer and crimp system.I use mine as a single stage,I just cant wrap my head around it long enough to not have a brain fart and spill shot and powder all over when using as intended.
    Cant beat 60 beans though!! remember to load only one brand of hull.

    You will probably enjoy it more if you clean it up. You will probably have rust inside the crimping and final sizing dies, etc. Moving parts will want some lubrication. Ron

    Mine was made and bought in 1974 or 75. It cranked out a gizillion shells for me and now is working for a neighbor since I've gone inactive in the shooting. It still makes perfect shells and had very little maintenance. I did raise the platform using metal tubes and long bolts to mount the loader to a piece of plywood so I could move it out of the way when I wanted space. I'd consider sending it to MEC right away and have them return it to new for you and you can get a "how to operate" booklet too......breakemall

    t7731, I agree with bdodd as well. Send it to Mec for a overhaul. Unless you really have lots of time on your hands and your really a mechanical type person who loves to tinker. Good Luck and Break em all. Jeff

    Heck the resizer will cost at least 50 if you had to buy it. So 50 was a bargin. Most of the parts that matter are the same as the 8567.
