    Where do the loaded rounds end up with the Auto-Drive? There does not appear to be a hole in the mounting plate for them to drop through. The front discharge appears to be no longer offered.

    There is a square opening between the motor and reloader.

    I asked the same question a while back.

    So there is room for my shell catcher that directs the finished rounds into the drawer under my bench?

    There is a squair cut hole under the motor housing directly behind the drop chute. Position the hole over your drop and you should be good.

    Jim: You may need to drill the hole a bit further back from the bench front, but the loaded shells rull through the square channel that is used for the motor mount.

    This picture kinda gives you an idea of it...

    If a person were to buy the hand lever model and then decide later that the foot pedal model was really what they wanted, would this be an easy thing to do without buying a complete new unit? ....Rick

    Jim, I mounted mine on two nicely plained 3x3 pieces of cherry, and the ejected shells fall into a tray, slid behind the machine.

    PS: the electric drive is a wonderful accessory, and I highly recommend it. mike

    It is my understanding that to go to the footswitch AFTER you have purchased the joystick version the cost is only $15 more that if you were to order the foot wsitch model initially.

    They charge $85 to upgrade it.
