    I bought mine off E bay a few years ago. A good back up machine , or good if you dont need to load mega amounts of shells.

    Problem is parts. Jims ear & eye is about the only person who might have parts. He has copies of owners manual if you need one.

    If you have reasonable mechanical ability and some patience you can get it to load as good or better than anything else.

    Bought mine for 80. Im happy.



    Regards....Gerald

    Parts are no longer avail;able for the 600 machine. Either variation.

    Just as a FYI, They will/ are going to be followed by the earlier 800 series. The following is pasted from the P/W website.

    ======================

    "Attention, owners of 800B/800C/or 800Convertible reloaders:

    After our current parts for these models are gone, we will no longer stock or manufacture parts for them. You may want to order any parts you need now."

    =====================

    The primer feed would be the big item. I don't think they have any left.

    The Cross Head was designed a little differently on the older 800's.

    Other parts would include the Main indexing Gear and Cylinder.

    Just something to be aware of.

    xringjim - Don't panic - it is probably a good machine - there are still parts out there. If you are mechanically inclined, it is fun to tweak these things up and make them work well. Plenty of help on this site: Jim C, Whiz, and Doug. If you don't like the mechanical stuff, put it back on ebay. Billy
