    Does anybody know the McMaster Carr p/n for the orings that are used on the die pins? How about the p/n for the square one that is used for the powder bushing seal?

    Thanks,
    Wayne

    Ask for Wayne. Anyone at that number can give you your answer.

    They are on line. You could look through their Catalog.

    My die retaining pins don't have o-rings, but it's a novel idea. But the fact that you want/need to replace them probably means that they are not terribly long-lived.

    I cross-drilled my non-o-ring pins to accept a short length of large diameter string trimmer line which I cut off to allow just a few-thousandths-of-an-inch worth to stand proud of the pin's surface. This keeps the pins tight in the turret for quite a long time depending on how often they need to be removed. Trim the ends correctly and they will last for a very long time! Once the trimmer line wears down it's easy and cheap to replace with new line for a tight fit.

    I finally bought a new 800 two years ago. Those O rings and "Live Round" warning stickers came off in the first 2000 rounds loaded. They are not needed. Just take them off. BTW, current load count is 26000... I had not realized how worn my old 900 was getting.

    I have an old 800+ and the O-rings are still in place.

    One thing you could do is take a pin and go to an auto parts store or a Industrial supply store to see if they have one. The Industrial supply store would likely have metric size if you needed a in-between size.

    himark, when you took your dies out did you rub any oil around the pin and 0-rings why you replaced them?

    The replacement oring for the die pins is a -006. Occasionally my pins ride up when I'm loading. I actually had one come out once. I've replaced the orings on all the pins but haven't reloaded anything yet. We shall see what happens.
