    Having a problem with the primer drop on my mec grabber. It seems like the primers don't want to slide in the tray. I have tried cleaning tray and using all manner of lubes, with poor results. any insight on this? Thanks Bill

    I got mine and cracked the joint so that I could tilt the top to have more slope for easy feeding.

    I used pledge and that is when the problems started. It seemed to gum everything up. Bill

    Make sure the tray is at it's best angle to allow them to slide towards the drop.I had one that had moved so little that I didn't notice it at first, after repositioning the tray I use a very lightcoat of Johnson's paste wax.

    I used car wax. Well actually it was Harley wax. Make sure you do the top also. I had no problems now for about 1k or so. Again make sure you do the top.

    I have had more trouble with the new one than I ever did with the chain model. I have four models with the chain and I put the new primer on my Hydraulic.

    Yeah I know, some guys shouldn't reload. LOL

    I had the same problem in Mec 9000 with the large tray, in my case, it was about the up stroke, it has to be fast, so it can make the tray shake and the primer will slide. PM sent

    I dont' know. Perhaps you used too much Pledge. My tray verks great. I spray it on a cloth and wipe it lightly on the tray, let it dry and then wipe it off. My drops are perfect. About one every 500 or so flips over at the turn table, but I catch that visually and fix it.

    Another vote for Pledge or most any spray wax.

    I use something called Final Touchup, purchased at Advance Auto. It is a spray bottle of a watery solution. It is designed to put more shine on your car. It actually has teflon in the ingredients. There are other brands that are the same thing; doesn't build up like waxes do. It has worked great for years.
