    I noticed AFTER I loaded about 1000 shells that the crimp end of the shell (as viewed from the side standing on a table) is not completely parallel to the brass side of the shell. By looking at the shell it the only explanation I can think of is that the final crimp plunger might be canting to one side or the other, when pulling the handle all the way down, which is causing this abnormality. Anyone ever see this before? If so, what do I need to do to fix this? Thanks!

    Remove the final crimper and check it out. Does yours have the hex screw in the underside? If so, I'd bet (1) it is very dirty, (2) the hex screw is loose, (3) the top bolt (#B) is loose, or (4) the hardenes piece inside is loose, dirty, or broken.

    Look at item # 52b: The base of the shaft is what I am referring to...
