    I started with one a Desert Eagle and I love max loads in it as the accuracy has to be seen to be believed. Now I have added 3 more to the list a Super Red Hawk, a 629-6 and a 629-3. The Super Red Hawk has a 9 1/4" barrel and with full house loads...

    I had a T-Mag I and it was a fine machine. I used a feeler gauge between the turret and the support post to get rid of the excessive gap/play. I purchased a T-mag II and its a superior machine. I've full length resized .308 brass on it and it...

    The trigger gauge arrived yesterday so I did measurements on the Springfield Range Master. The results are surprising. I expected a 6-7 lb trigger and the results were showing the trigger was at 7.5lbs. That is a nasty trigger pull for something so...

    Only one there that is usable and its way over priced. The collator motors we are using are going to fall along two bolt patterns that the collator files support.

    Dayton makes probably the best motors on the market. I've never suffered a failure with one of them.

    Could you show where to file? I assume one needs to leave the dremel in the drawer and pull out a pattern file or something along this line.

    I noticed that your collator wheel has a tighter center hole and pin slot than my collator wheel does. Is your collator wheel printed from a different material and that material usage results in better detail?

    Difference in the motors The MBF is a beefier motor than the less expensive motor available on ebay. Having said the MBF is a beefier motor in my opinion either should work well. I checked my stash and found that I had ordered a cheap...

    I don't want the air operated setup. Mine will be the sparton version using a gear reduction motor and speed control.

    Unfortunately due to the fact I didn't have my coffee yet I had to read your post several times before it soaked in. I understand now that your saying the collator needs to be made to be a nose down only unit and that way it can be sold without...

    Welcome to the forum. I have been playing with the collator with a piece of tape covering the exit hole. I was off yesterday and played with the collator trying to get my 124gr SWC 9mm bullets to drop consistantly without a lot of success. I...

    I've tried both ways and simply prefer the nose down. As mentioned in nose down the pressure is on the base and not on the nose. Running bullets nose down with a bullet feeder is faster because the bullet seems to line up better with the radius on...

    I was just thinking of a plan "B" in case the collator can't be easily made to nose down bullets.
