    I just got an Automate from a friend. I nstalled it on my 9000GN and it works pretty well, but there is little to no clearance betreen the shell and the deprime punch at the first station. I called MEC and the tech said he would send me a new
    center spring because he thought the upper turret assembly was not going up far enough. I went and checked that and it is up against the frame. I don't know how much clearance I had before the modification. The distance between the lower turret and the upper is 6 7/8 which is the same as a friends 9000 and he had 3/8 cleance where I have almost none. I know some of you guys use the Automate, what do you think?? I'm about ready to grind off part of the deprimer punch. The reason I'm concerned is that I have to tilt the shell to get it into the first station.

    I have the same set up. But not the problem.

    I measured the distance between the base of the deprime station and the end of the deprime punch to be 2 7/8 inches in the rest position.

    The empty shell is only 2 6/8 inches tall. So no tip. Slides right in.

    I note the deprime punch itself can be raised or lowered some what. Mine is raised as high as it can go, screwed tight.

    Is yours?
