1. We have added the ability for anyone to 'bump' threads that they have created. This is mainly useful in the classifieds area where posters constantly bump for sale threads to bring it to the top. This allows them the ability to do that without having to clutter the thread with extra 'TTT' and 'Bump' type posts. To bump it, go inside your thread and click on 'Thread Tools' at the top, then select 'bump'. You can bump only once per 24 hour period.

    For more detailed information please see this post: Thread Bump Functionality.

    Machined aluminum base to replace the black plastic P/W base for the EZ-Fill hoppers. Much more rigid than the molded plastic P/W base. This will eliminate leakage caused by the flexibility of the plastic base.

    Email or Private Message if interested. I do not have any material on hand now but I will get some if there is enough interest. Cost is $75.00.

    I am getting a lot of interest in a base with the bushing access holes. Personally I never use them because I believe you need to disassemble periodically to clean the stray powder and shot from under the gears. I will make a set with the bushing access holes to determine how much extra work is involved.

    Jim,

    I agree with you on tear down and clean however many times before a big shoot I load 1 1/8 oz. shot for the 2nd shot of doubles and 1 oz. for the first shot. I may then switch bushings during this reloading session. The bushing access ports just make it much easier to accomplish especially if lead time is a factor.

    FWIW, I've been using one of Jim's bases for a year or so and it reduce's the need to frequently clean the gear rack area. Loading with hydraulic's its difficult to determine when you begin to receive some resistance from the gear rack area. If Jim comes up with a model with bushing access then I'll probaby upgrade.
