    I need to order 2 punch nuts w/set screws. What would be the total with shipping? They will be shipped to 67002.

    Chris, could you make an adaptor that allows the use of Lyman/RCBS nose punches for use in a Star?


    I realize one would then be sizing base first, but that is desirable at times.

    The best way to get a response from Chris is to send him a PM

    Just received a die removal tool (plus other other stuff as well). Here is a pic of the die removal tool. Also included a punch to eject the last bullet. Very nice, don'tcha think? Seems like a bargain for $22 to me.

    Howdy Lathesmith I'm new here to the forum I'm thinking about purchasing a new star lubrisizer. Would it be possible to get your contact information in regards to ordering new dies and other parts. Thanks Buckey

    Hi Buckey,
    Yes! I'll send you a Private message and also an email, and send along the contact info that you need. It's easiest to use a Private message here on the forum, and email also (usually) works as well.
    Welcome to the forums! It's a great place to learn about all aspects of casting and shooting, as well as picking up the finer points on operating the Star.

    Regards,

    Yay, I found the proper thread and the source for my soon to be acquired Star Lube/Sizer! Lathesmith, I'll send you a PM, and would like to gain your help at a first die order, and whatever else I'll need!

    Lathesmith, what tolerance do you work to on your size die diameter?

    John, dies are typically sized .0008 or so under specified size, in order to allow for the varying final sizes of different alloys.

    Hi Chris.Was just wondering about something.On plugging the lube holes for the right alighnment of lube groves.Could the lube holes be threaded for set screws like are used for the stop rings.Seems like it would be a bit easier to change for a different boolit.They could be drilled and tapped to bottom out about .003 below the surface of the die for clearance.I know that the cost would be more because of the additional work.Thanks for your time to answer.
    Good luck.Have fun.Be safe.
