    That is the fixture that restrains the die as you attempt to knock the hull out.

    I will load a photo of another gadget that makes removing a crushed loaded hull from the die ( without removing the die) made by Gary Bulley. I will also load a photo of my spent primer box which is crude but very usefull and easy to make.

    The cardboard ( sideboards I taped to my factory spent primer box go all the way up to elimate the primers that used to not go in the box

    Is THAT what it's for? I thought it held your shot glass while you were loading. j/k 8>) ....Rick

    MIA- I noticed your base to hold the die when knocking out a bad shell appears to be worn very little. Mine is worn quite a bit. Is there some meaning in this observation?

    Pat, did you also notice that the bench is not covered with shot and powder? Definitely something odd about that, too!

    Pat. Don't know what to tell you. guess it is because I use a "power loader"
    (My son-in-law) He loads for my daughter too.

    And I just saw the little plastic box and thought it was cute. It fits perfectly and I have not filled it as yet. My garage is heated but still 40 degrees now. I use a space heater for about an hour to get the temp up to 50. I know you are headed to FL shortly. I should go too, but wife keeps me as her "domestic" and I live off the fat of the land. So, I do not need too many shells this time of year. About 100 a week is all.

    That box came from a check-out display at Staples Offic Supply.

    While your on the subject of p/w loaders, I have often wondered why the spent primer box is shaped the way it is. Was there some early reloader that required the cutout in the corner of the box? Just curious!

    If you mount the die-holding fixture over the edge of the bench you can put empty dies in it pointing down and use a piece of mop handle to tap a new empty hull into place after removing the bad one.

    MIA, that is a cute little box. I do not need one on my P/W as I do not allow spent primers anywhere near the loader! They always get where they do not belong and they screw up the smoothness of the machine. Only deprimed and resized hulls are allowed on my P/W's!

    I have four Mec Sizemasters. Their primary job is to deprime and resize hulls for the progressive machines. They are handy for working up new loads too.

    I'm curious, too, about the shape of the spent primer box on PW's. What is the reason for its odd shape? Jim?

    It is an old shape to fit a different loader. That is all I recall.

    Maybe it is the same one as the 375 DuoMatic?

    Earlier machines had a base stud that held the currect primer box design.

    I use a 100 count sports card box in place of the current primer box.

    I am also making the knock-outs.

    Whiz,

    I have a 900 with a auto shell feeder.

    When I feed the shell by pulling down the handle, many times the the top edge of the hull hits the bottom of the die.( STS Hulls)
    I've adjusted the side bar many times to no avail. Any suggestions?Cray
