    Any tips primer feed tray has lost its slip. Primers do not want to slide down into position. Any good tips. I tried cleaning and waxing, did not work so well.

    Clean your tray, make sure you don't have any debris and then lightly spray the tray surface with pledge and buff it with a soft cloth. This will make it slicker for the primers without making it sticky.
    Good Luck

    I will clean my tray with Brake Clean on a cloth and then use floor wax. I will put the wax on then polish it with another and it works great.

    Pledge or a touch of powdered graphite work wonders. Clean it first and then a light touch of either. Wipe it down a bit after the application and you are good to go. Brake Cleaner can damage/melt plastic, so use it on the metal trays ONLY. Alcohol is a better choice if you must degrease it. I find the powdered graphite works the best for me and usually make sure a very small amount makes it down the primer tube. I use a touch on the charge bars also.

    Every so often, I use #0000 steel wool and give the tray a rub. Works on either type of feeder. A shot of powdered teflon works too.

    Remove the primer feed tray. Clean it good with hot soapy water. Let it dry. Two coats of good car wax. Replace the tray. Works for me. Paul

    I use powder graphite on the tray and a pipe cleaner w/graphite in the drop tube. Seems to work.

    Carefuly bend it up a bit to give you a steeper slope. I use pledge spray on the surface and shine it up with a soft cloth.

    Sprinkle a little baby powder or motor mica on the tray and it will stay slick for quite a while.....Dan Thome (Trap2)

    "willing" is correct. A little powdered graphite does the job. Clean first with carb cleaner.

    Primer trays just get dirty over time and all you have to do is spray a little Pledge (furniture duster) on the tray and wipe dry. This is also recommended by MEC.

    The longest lasting fix for a slick primer tray I've found is to wax it with "Liquid Glass" auto polish. Works terrific on your car also! Hap
