    Unless I'm losing my mind only one of them says dillon and it's for rod? And now your google drive says no files.

    Which pieces do I need for the dillon casefeed mount? Only one says dillon in the description. Too many to choose from which is a good problem.

    It's no big deal really. I can wait for the newer versions of everything.

    I'll start it now, report after I guess my press assembled. Off to the hardware store for me. You still have the files? I couldn't find them on your Google drive.

    My casefeeder finally came in. Mine is measuring around 5mm+/- but definitely not much over 5mm.

    I made the 380Auto plate but haven't tested it running yet so I'll report my results tomorrow, but wanted to say that I took the hex down to 12.3 and it fits very nicely(not sure but I suspect 12.2 would need convincing or shaving), my other prints...

    I forget that we have the generator to play with thanks to Tyler. I'll have to try to make a dedicated 380 plate rather than a 9mm/380Auto plate.

    11.5mm was the shortest I found by doing a spot check

    I feel for you, I know you'll get it solved, but if you lived closer I'd print a main body and slide plates for you. Hate to see print struggles especially after such a long print like yours. I wonder why they came out soo much different?

    You've never had your collator plate get hung up on the hex adaptor? I added a video to my previous post of the play in the opening.

    Both comments may have been mine, one was measuring with calipers and it seemed they wouldn't fit, then when I had the hex connectors on hand I placed them in and they seemed to be perfect. After doing some small runs though unfortunately they do...

    Awesome Tyler, can't wait till you work on rifle bullet feeding(base down) as well as printed feed dies. If its going to be a while I will buy them from DAA as i suck at fusion and OpenSCAD. I don't know why I can't get things to model the way I...

    The hex plates are sometimes jamming up on the hex adapter on the motor, must be from a little slack. I haven't had any detrimental issues yet(except previously when a allen screw backed out locking the plate in and forcing the collator plate off,...

    I'm so glad my prints never take that long, not sure if I'd like 3D printing at all if they did.

    Guess I need to print more turning/slide plates. I was attempting to use the two and have a way to move them for different calibers but that's more tedious than making more and having a set screw for each one set to the bullet and caliber I'm...

    How do you guys use set screws to adjust the flipper plates?

    For 223 I tried using the main body adaptor with the smallest hole and the section cut in the middle but the bullets kept getting caught up on the top flat area along the outer edge so I sawed off one side and shaped the round with an exacto and it...

    On the round side it's more than the flat side, but I'd rather buy shorter allen screws or shave them down myself. I'm sure they(Hex adaptors) are not all created equal so I would hate to ask for the design to be modified.

    The allen screws were too long and rather than find an assortment of different lengths and being that the hex adapter is brass I felt it necessary to drill at least a dimple where each screw attached to the shaft, the rest of the length I shaved...

    I ended up buying the McMaster because it seems to be the best. I had bought a JGY-370 but kept it in the box unused since you stated it would be underpowered for your bigger build.

    Might be a good idea to source the connectors in steel or anything stronger than brass, we'll see how it goes and shortening the allen screws was easy but a PITA definitely use loctite I can't stress that enough... My press should be arriving...
