Just got in a large shipment of CNC machined aluminum Mec bushing adapters. I am also making these out of black Delrin.

The little gems allow you to use your Mec bushings in the following reloaders:

* P/W<BR>
* Spolar<BR>
* RCBS Grands<BR>
* Hornaday 366 machines



They are $12.50 and $2.00 postage each for lower-48 states. I take checks, VISA, M/C, and PayPal.

I had a peck of bushing from my old Mec Jr. Then i stepped up to the P-W.

Like PBB said i needed that in-between size.

I had all the bushings I would need fo rmy MEC. But thinking I was done with MEC I sent them along wiht the loader to the new owner. I think he appreciated it, which gives me a back-slap but that is about all.

Got a couple of calls from some of you who said these are fitting very snuggly in the black powder gear.

I miced all that I have here at the shop and they are about 0.002" larger than I want them to be. Because the powder gear from P/W is a molded plastic, it is not uncommon for the plastic to be malformed. In a rebuild I occasionally have to hone out the bushing hole in it so I can get a powder bushing in it.

Consequently, I think I will turn a few of these down to be a bit undersized. This won't hurt anything because of the o-ring in the underside of the reservoir, but I don't want you guys to have to be honing anything.

I have also decided to make some of these adapters out of Delrin black so they may slide in easier into the black plastic gear.

If you got a bushing that you think is too tight, let me know and I will send a replacement ASAP, no charge. You pick the material.

Again, if you are experiencing ANY problem with these, get hold of me. I don't expect you to be fooling around trying to make these fit your gear.

These were made on a CNC lathe in SC for me and are all the same AND are made from the same diameter aluminum rod that the P/W bushings are made of.

Thanks, Wesley. But, in all honesty, I would want someone who sold me something that was supposed to work, to work without any hastle.

There's nothing worse than to drop some cash for something that you think should work, and it doesn't. I have drawers full of junk like that, and I remember who I got it from. We've all done that and it leaves a bad taste in our mouths.

There's nothing better to build good customer relations that to make something work that was supposed to in the first place. I learned that from my late father, a executive with Armour & Co. He resigned as the West Coast Sales VP because he refused to fire anyone he'd hired. Had to admire him for that and sticking to his principles.

He was a great father, a good Mason & Shriner, and lived by the Golden Rule. Wished some of our big-time execs and politicians live by the sale rule. Unfortunately, their Golden Rule is: "Grab the Gold and Split!"
