    Whiz

    Today I received one of the primer feed vibrators built by Whiz White of S & W Supply. It is a quality piece of workmanship and works like a dream. It took me about 10 minutes to install, one minute to adjust and then I loaded 100 rounds and never had to tap that darn primer feed at all. My thanks to Whiz. Keep creating.

    Thanks for the "thanks" Doug.

    I experiment on your with a larger triggering switch and a all aluminum (good quality) cast box. I ordered in several different switch designs and styles, but your was one of the larger ones. Not a big deal, but I'd like to know how it is a year from now.

    Again, thanks!

    Spolar sure has.

    I got some requests to make an aftermarket unit for the Spolars that was not so distractingly noisy. Following that, the guys started wanting me to build them for the P/W's, and that's where we now stand.

    No more "good" ideas Bob. I just figured if a Spolar guy could hijack a PW thread, I could be a Somalia pirate too.

    The vibrator that Whiz produces is many times quoted than the one Spolar makes. I removed the Spolar vibrator my PW because of the excessive noise made when in the run position. The one Whiz makes is just a low humming sound and not intrusive at all.
    Yes Spolar has one but the new one is better.

    Citadel,
    Every Spolar reloader has always come with a viberator, it is standard equipment. Use the red on/off switch when you have the loader in one position, there is no sense it letting it run all of time.

    Dicksie, I know that but it is still noisy when running. Take a look at the design Whiz has come up with as I believe that is is an improvement on your excellent idea. He has taken it one step further and reduced the noise level which a welcome modification.

    I use a 3v motor in my design on my PW and it isn't very nosiy. If a 9 or 12v motor is being used that may be the reason for the excessive noise. I have found that a 3v motor works fine.

    The noise I hear on my Spolar is the primers vibrating, the motor is almost silent. Use a slower motor or a weight that is closer to balanced and you will hear less noise but get less vibration.

    I tortured the WHIZ to make the last run of primer tray vibrators . I'm more than willing to have a little bit of humming rather than NOT having primers drop .

    Now if we can only get JERRY to print a design for his " PRIMER DIRECTORS " ???

    Good shooting.

    I finally got some motivation to make my own primer tray vibrator. I went to Radio Shack and picked up a few parts that cost me exactly $8.99 including the motor. I fiddled with it most of 2 hours changing this and that and finally got it the way I like it. Mine works off of a 9v battery. I was going to order one from Whiz and after all said and done I saved $90. Not bad for a rainy nights work.

    Boy I never thought that I would get so much comment when just trying to let the PW owners know that there was now a cure for " primeittus". That's the lack of free flowing primers. Dr. whiz has the solution for PW owners who do not wish to spend the time solving it themselves. We truly is a "whiz"

    You are right about the reason for the noise when the vibrator is running.
    The majority of the noise has nothing to do with the motor; it is due to the rattling of the primers against the primer try lid. We have recently found a way to quite it significantly. Use the loop side of 3/8 inch wide self-stick Velcro, cut a narrow piece about 3/16th or less long. On the right and left top edge of the primer tray about half way down from the top clean the metal off with a little acetone on a Q-Tip let it dry then stick the piece Velcro loop on. The plastic lid will rest on the Velcro, not on the metal edge.

    The only noise I hear when I'm reloading is the sweet sound of perfect shells falling into a bucket from my Mec loader with the large primer tray...
