    Good Morning, I am ready to buy a MEC 9000E automate. Somewhere as I searched for a good deal I saw an accessory bar that allowed you to push both buttons at one time with the ease of one hand. But now I can't find it at first I assumed it was from MEC but they don't show it. Anybody seen these or where they are available? Thanks in advance, Dale Brown

    the two button deal is no big deal. the oversize buttons may come in handy if you load a lot

    I would recommend using both hands to operate the buttons. It would be very easy to stick a free hand in the mechanism without that safety feature. You would not want to do that.

    You won't need it. Buy the thing and try it first. Not a problem with the buttons. You can't do anything until it cycles anyway. GaryL.

    Using the two button method is safe, fast and help develop a rythem (sp) that makes the whole process work very well. I am very happy with mine.

    It's okay because you don't have an OSHA inspector in your reloading room. LOL Ron
