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.

    At first, they seem cumbersome to change bottles, shot, powder, bushings, etc. But after you figure out to work with the unit, it makes all those things easier. One tip I will give you is to put a strip of tape across the top of the shot bottle insuring that the stopper stays in. Then the unit can be tipped back safely. I have mine on a 9000E and It is really easy to change bushings, bars, shot etc.

    687;I made one years ago for my 9000.I took some one half tubing with an L in it to go across behind the bottles and down to the rear of the loader.When I got it the right lenth I drilled a hole in the side of the loader and used a metal tubing strap that only has one hole in it. I took a long bolt and bolted it to the loader frame with a round spring over the bold on the inside of the loader.when I want the support up I pull the clamp out and put it over the tubing when I don'T I pull the clamp out and let it lay on the bench.The bolt to leave it swivle is about 4 or 5 inches above the tubing clamp threw the middle of the tubing.

    Jack--I won't ask why your so specific on taping the cap in. LOL

    I have had my hours picking up shot from the little red cap coming out. What a mess. That stuff goes everywhere.

    Matt. I actually learned that 20 years ago. Nuff said, except that the bottle support should be SOP from the start. It works great and makes switching loads a breeze.

    grntitan, put a jaxx ball inside the top of a soft drink bottle and glue it on top of your shot bottle and you will never have to pick up shot again.turn it over and the ball will drop,blocking the opening.when your done screw the cap on.works for powder to.

    No cost bottle support. Take a powder bushing and place it half way up between the two bottles. Then take a rubber band and put it around the two bottles to hold the bushing in place. HMB

    I am confused on how the bushing and rubber band thing adequately supports the bottles in the event the silver solder (1969 Mec 650) failed which it did one time on the shot bottle. It was not fun cleaning up the 15 # of shot. Since then of course, I re-soldered the "cap" but more importantly installed the bottle support which attaches to the machine and would hold the bottle in the event the solder again failed!
