Unusual query.

I just put the thing up on the bench and sent 3 drill screws into the counterin the holes provided.

I suppose you could mark them with a magic marker if you're persnickety.

Very funny, Jeff. Pardon my reluctance to employ Kentucky engineering. I sometimes forget that shotgunning is not among the precision shooting sports.

Easiest way is to sit it where you want it, and take a pencil and mark the holes. Move the reloader and drill where the holes are.

Worked for me........

Hausfan must remember what he read in his MEC manual.

I have attached a scan of the mounting information from my 9000G manual.

Jbrucejr, Nope.........Not something I remember reading from the manual.

I was a machinist at John Deere's for 31 years, and like Sherlock Holmes would say........"This is just elementary, Watson". ;) lol

Hauxfan (spelt kerectly dis time)

I started off as a machinist for Harley Bair at Bair Machine. (yep - the blast from the past loader & wad manufacturer from here in Nebraska) Continued with school and worked for 8 years as a prototype machinist and tool maker. Have been a mechanical engineer for the last 25.

I agree with your quote from Holmes. ;-)

I don't relly know why I still have the MEC manual. Being an Engineer I am morally obligated to open the box of everything I buy, trash the manual then disassemble and reassemble the item BEFORE I use it. lol

Cheers

John

I just could not resist the litle bit of ribbing. On a side note a when attaching that loader to piece of plywood get some lattice strips and glue and fasten with brads to make a curb for the eventual spill. I also have my plywood hanging over the front of the bench a little ways and drilled a hole in one corner that is plugged with a cork. This allows me to sweep the spillages to the hole and into a kitchen strainer sitting in a margerine bowl. The strainer will allow most powders to sift through and captures the powder. Bill

I like a 1 X 12 of #3 pine and screw the loader to the pine with drywall screws. This way if I want to put it away for a while to work with a different loader, I just pick it up and move it. If the press slides around to much, I use a C clamp on my wood. I currently have a vise attached with lag screws to a 2 X 8 and 3 C clamps make it sit real quiet. This way I can move to any one of my 3 benches (in my gun room) or whereever I want to be. I do like about a foot of wood in front of the loader to help with the leverage on the downstroke. The wood (screen molding) around the edge works great. For you craftsy kind of guys, router a groove around the edge of the wood and your spill barrier will almost be invisible. You can also use metal brackets if you want to slide out one press and replace with a different press. IMHO Omaha

EE Now that you ask, Yes, I do! I file it under M for Mobile. I have another copy filed under T for Templates. Thanks for asking. Your filing system may differ. LOL Omaha
