    polish the lower end of the die with water proof sand paper or use a fine cut file on the out side diameter, leave the taper as is.

    Me too. IMHO the Hollywood super turret is the best, but I don't know that I will ever own one. I just don't have that kind of disposable income now. Sent from my VS880 using Tapatalk

    I like it. I wish Lee would make a rifle and pistol diecast adjustable charge bar. When I first saw the picture, I thought it might be some type of disconnector or return bar, to replace the chain. Sent from my VS880 using Tapatalk

    jimkim replied to a thread motor????? in Reloading Equipment
    You're welcome. You might pull the shaft on that motor, and look at it. I had one FA tumbler lock up. I pulled the shaft, and it had worn flats on it. I put it back in and lined the round sections up with the bearings and it worked again. It...

    That is odd. I guess it's made to be non-serviceable. Wrap it in bubble wrap, and tape. And send it like that. Shop around for the best shipping price. Don't forget about 3rd and 4th class mail. Sent from my VS880 using Tapatalk

    Five years ago RCBS had motors for $15.00. You can call them, and see if they still have them. The motors in the tumblers are usually exhaust or vent fan motors. ...
