    I use it. As long as you bolt it something sturdy it works great. Nice to be able to switch loaders in the same spot, if you do not have room to set up more than one.

    +1 for thebigsky.

    I have three MEC's and swapping from one to another is easy. Once you bolt in a new machine, it is like the new machine is bolted directly to your loading bench.

    The MEC jig adds about 1/2 inch to the height of your machine.

    I have one also and its great. Very easy to switch over loaders without taking all the time it would take to remove 4 bolts and then rebolt the other loader to the table. I can change a loader in min's. Well worth the money.

    Bought one when I picked up my 28 ga. 9000G, love it. I can swap my 12/28 in there in mere moments. Keeps my bench free for 'project space' since I have my metallic reloading setup on the other side.

    I guess I bought an old one that acted as a slide mount only. It did not add any height at all. Dont have a mec any more, still have the mount.

    I worked great.

    It will not work for a PW. The PW base is to thick. The best you could do is make a 1/2 in thick plate of steel drill the 8 holes and thread 4 of them. 4 to bolt it to the table and 4 for the loader. You can then unbolt it with ease and rebolt it with ease.

    The reason for the 1/2 steel. You will not pull out the bolts while loading and you will not bend the plate while reloading. Its thick enough to not give you a problem.

    BarrelBulge, Sorry for the mess on the loader. You can widen or narrow the jig for any size Mec loader.

    It is thick and heavy. It is well made and not of cheap metal. They did well on the engineering and the choice of metal.

    Best jig of all

    Cold in my part of the world. Not shooting much and miss it. Also miss loading on my 9000E. Only real negative is that the power unit jacks up the loader. I may construct a cut down bench this summer.

    I have successfully loaded thousands of 12, 20, 28 & 410 loads on MEC progressive loaders - Grabbers and now a 12 ga. 9000G. The 9000 is simply fastened to a base consisting of a piece of 1 x 12" scrap pine lumber. Four screws hold the loader down on this base board. The loader is positioned 6" back from the front of the base and 4" forward from the rear, keeping loader from tilting during use. Put a base on each loader and you can move/store them wherever you have space. Cost? about a dollar a base. Best Regards, Ed

    Auctioneer..I am relieved to see another loader that is as unkempt as mine. Mine is from the occasional and unnoticed failure to drop a primer. I started to vacuum the mess up onetime and then I had a picture of a powder fire in my vacuum and thought better of it.

    I'm no clean freak. Glad I didn't show the rest of the room. LOL.
