    Here's an item that I have talked about previously, but I think it has gone unnoticed. I am reposting this because it is such a cheap and simple solution to the often discussed problem of having to tap the primer feed track.

    These are $13.00, and are a bolt-right-on add on. Here is one pictured on the Patriot has a standard item, but it easily adapts to ALL of P/W progressives.

    This is my solution for my Patriot. A vibrator motor attached to the bottom of the tray, and a momentary push button switch with a 9V battery. All for about $20 off eBay.

    When the primers do not feed, I just press the switch for a few seconds and all is well.

    I find the tapper a poor way to unjam the primers. Does not work half the time at best.

    I don't know about you gimmick lovers ... but a couple of taps with my finger will get them moving again.

    Fingers are never misplaced and don't need batteries or wires.

    It's the principle of the thing, Ahab...

    Man employs his superior intellect and technology to do battle with the laws of the universe and devise exquisitely complex solutions to absurdly simple problems (or is it absurdly complex solutions to exquisitely simple problems?).

    Anyway...it's what sets us apart from (but not necessarily above) monkeys and apes, dontcha know!

    Versatile tool this... use it unadorned as is or saddle it with $20 worth of mechanical and electrical complexity to accomplish the same thing. Interesting!

    Sure, I buy the battery powered one for a lot more than that, and THEN you post this. What a guy!

    Okay, you showed your fixes, I will show you mine. It really works well. It works so well I sometimes get a floor full of primers. As you can see, I have emptied the primer tray. BUT, it works -------------- :) Bob

    Thanks for adding some humour to this thread, even though the others had some well thought out solutions.

    Tell you what would be a helluva money maker for someone: invent an IR switch using something of the likes of the Staples <i>"That was easy!"</i> hand button, only make it MUTE the damn television during commercials, and then smack it again to return to normal programming.

    I'd love to have that right next to my easy chair for every commercial that (1) comes up all too often, and (2) raises the noise level.

    Whiz, I have that button, but it is the 4x speed on my DVR...can't remember the last time I watched a show live. Even if I want to watch it the same night, it starts recording and if an hour show I start watching it 20 minutes late....I catch up to it live right at the end.

    Whiz, I had the hammer just sitting around doing nothing useful-------

    Sorry Whiz, I could not help it. Your gizmo, knowing you, is well made and works but the devil made me hang that dang hammer (actually it is a mallet). Regards, Bob

    Smith47: I knew you were kidding. And, actually, I got such a laugh out of it, I thought I'd throw one your way. I am still laughing. Was actually going to ask the length of the string!!!

    You're OK!

    Smith47,

    A technical question for you. I understand the device and its implication(s), but...

    Is that a form of 'impact adjustment,' or is it 'percussive maintenance??'

    Further, that hammer looks awfully small for the task at hand - might a heavier (and properly metal one) be more reliable?

    HSLDA,
    Unfortunately the impact adjustment is pretty coarse, BUT if you will notice, the angle of the dangle is very precise.
    Also, I tried a smaller hammer but it did not adequately address the proper frustration factor.
    Best regards to all, Bob

    The electronic vibrator Whiz sells, works great. And easy to install.

    If I was to invent a electronic vibrator to make money it would not be for a primer tray I'll tell you that!!
