1. We have added the ability for anyone to 'bump' threads that they have created. This is mainly useful in the classifieds area where posters constantly bump for sale threads to bring it to the top. This allows them the ability to do that without having to clutter the thread with extra 'TTT' and 'Bump' type posts. To bump it, go inside your thread and click on 'Thread Tools' at the top, then select 'bump'. You can bump only once per 24 hour period.

    For more detailed information please see this post: Thread Bump Functionality.

    YOu guys... I saw the value of that item right away. And I can tell you that it is a godsend to the folks that operate my 9000E including myself. One of the best features of the unit is that it beckons rather than being a chore. My E is in my garage and in the warm weather season (short where I live) I get bored with nothing on the T and V and meander out to the garage and just start filling the shell bin with easy assembly steps. the new style primer feed works great the powder drops are very consistent. Adn the E gets the credit. I wish yo luck on finding a unit. Not sure why anyone would want to sell their auto unit an put the handle mechanism back on.

    And you can probably buy a whole 9000E system and sell your old 9000 for push money rather than buy a auto unit alone.

    I'm with Jack. I have one of the AutoMate IIs sold by inventor Jim Benn and love it. No noise, leak potential or hose clutter but my arthritic shoulder joint is happy reloading once again.

    I got one from Jim Benn at Iowa in 2004 and it has been one of the best purchases I have EVER made on anything. You will not regret it, even if it's one of the new MEC models, which are slightly different but just as efficient.

    The original unit by Jim was the Auto-Mate...them he did some updates and called them the Auto-Mate II...If a Auto-Mate goes down you may be SOL...Mec however will service a Auto-Mate II...they have one of mine, but not an Auto-Mate...something with liability & the purchase agreement. I have 3 of them set up and love them...like anything mechanical they have their quirks but if you mechanically inclined and get to know them they are the best...quite, no fluids all over the place, etc.

    The new uniot Mec is putting our is also different than an Auto-Mate II...on a Auto-Mate II you push both buttons and can let go and the machine will cycle...you hit & release them to stop it...with the new Mec you have to hold down the buttons until it bottoms and then you can let go and it will finiosh cycling...if you let go while its in the downward movement it will stop...a lot safer but also slightly slower.
