    As do I! I have always found that what some find elementary - others find novel. I wish I could learn just one "elementary" trick each and every day.
    I shared that one because I have found that if one person doesn't know something - chances are there are more.

    Hey pastera

    I downloaded and printed your design. You have one for a 45 acp case?

    And I love the spacer idea. Going to work up a few different ones. 44 acp 45 colt 38 spc And 233.

    Made and printed some press mounted powder funnels. It works for every case I can think of from 223/25acp to the 50s. (selling them too try to recoop the cost of the 3d printer but I am just super proud of this so showing it off now hehe)

    Works great in progressive presses too, so you can keep some speed and keep all your hands free for the powder side without sneezing and dropping all over the desk. (yep...)

    About 5 years ago I introduced my Primer Guard primer catcher for the Rock Chucker Supreme loading press. It was a real hit with quite a few, but now I have what I believe is the best fix for the primer problem with this press. This fix eliminates not only the primer catching problem, but also the primer residue buildup on the press. Here's a link to the video on YouTube.

    I find myself grieving over the fact that I have not learned how to use a 3d printer OR a CAD program. I wish I was 12 yrs old now. I know what I would study.

    Tall feller here, needed to get the Ideal 45 sizer up off the bench. Didn't have the plate for the InFab riser so I made one out of some oak I had laying around.Click image for larger version.

    Just saw this - Not certain which part you are asking for? a 45 ACP pusher, spacer or both?

    let me know and I'll post up some new models (not a lot of work for a different case once I build a model based on parameters - enter rim diameter and case height)
