    Crusing Spolar's website and notice they now have on the machines a Low Primer Warning System and an Electronic shot, powder and primer settling system. My machine is about 6 years old and does not have these features. For those of you with a newer loader, exactly what are those?

    The low primer warning is the little red LED behind the primers. The settling system is the "buzzer." I bet your loader already has these.

    The new primer cup is worth getting. No more tipped primers. Easy to install; just don't over tighten the brass holder that threads into the base.
    Read, and I mean, read the directions and you will not shear off any threads.

    I totally agree on the new primer cup system. I was getting as many as 2 or 3 tips out of each 10 shells, even though I had tried to adjust the set screw on the female primer slide many times. I got the new cup and bolt and loaded almost 4 full flats before I had a tip. A most desireable upgrade.

    I rarely got a tipped primer on either Spolar, but when I heard about the cup update, had to get one...actually 2. The landing zone is no longer a socket head cap screw, but a flat machined surface. Surprised me how stable the primer was upon landing, compared to before. The one and only primer feed issue I have had since getting the new cup and screw is a hanging primer in a Remington that they do occasionally. Very worth while update.

    The low primer light was an option. Not really necessary... just look at the track. The new cup is a requirement... will order one soon. Fred
