    Never could do that, but you can pin it into a regular post: 1. Put any files you want him to get in a folder. 2. Open the folder.....click "share" then highlight the files you want in the zip. 3. Click the menu item "Zip", while in that...

    I'm not sure the manual is up to date with motors....would be surprised. But TylerR will tell us. The speed control that quit me didn't have a relay....that was before he brought up the relay thing.....so maybe that was why. Hopefully he'll come...

    TylerR hasn't answered yet....I don't know what he gravitated to, but I can tell you what I have gravitated to. I've used 2 of those little ones and one quit.....so 50% for me. So I went looking for a little more quality without too much cost...

    I got the rest of it printed today.....I no longer try to print the shell and insert together....I get MUCH better prints when the printhead isn't dragging filament from one to the other. A final touch-up with white paint marker and paint...

    I just printed a 223 insert today to see if I'd have any trouble.....nope. I printed with a polypropylene bed set at 65 C with green satin Zyltec PLA at 215 C. using .120mm layer height and only a skirt on the bed. Polypropylene is...

    I tried these four for .308 and they all worked great in the #11. I really like that plate.

    I finally, after 2 years sitting on a shelf, decided to used a Lockout Die. I got all the dies set up and passed 3 9mm through the system to test.....perfect. But besides the Lockout die, I'm using another RCBS product a Uniflow because I had it...

    I started with a Rock Chucker and modded it to kick cases and catch primers. I used the soda straw trick, but added a ramp and a tube in the bottom of the catch tray. As nice as it works, the Lee APP can do it better.....because its the...

    Thought you might get a kick out of this.......watch it full screen so you can see what's going on. I'd really rather Lee develop a better priming system that can empty to the last primer. But since I have this press, I wanted to be able to...

    Don-- I erased my post as premature, because I wanted to investigate what's going on with yours. Where I burnished graphite was in the primer chute, for about ten minutes. I took the chute off the press and discovered it's sort of "hinged" so it...

    Well that depends on the day, depends on what I'm doing. If you're talking about the video......that's just a demo of how a case feeder can work on a Summit. The brass in the video isn't prepped, except that the demo is showing what would be the...

    tt365 gave you good ideas to think about.....I'll give you one more. Probably the worst problem with my experience learning to 3dprint, was prints lifting. So then you search the internet for ways to make it stick better, and you get the masking...

    You've most likely figured out where to put it, so it depends.....on how much room you are giving it. The Ender 3 's are still a good choice, bang for buck, IMO, but you will have a limited bed size to do TylerR's Standard size collator, but no...

    No I only loaded the feed tube in the demo....that's what the electric collator is for. Yes is takes time to load the hopper....about 2 seconds to dump several hundred into it from a gallon container of prepped brass ..... but you'd rather feed...

    Just got a report from the guy doing .45 ACP on his 6000. Absolutely no indication of denting or marking the big primers.....I don't know how they accomplish that....but I'm not complaining.

    That's a possibility, but you could also try burnishing powdered graphite into the stem and the shell plate hole to make both slicker. I've used a Q-tip for burnishing holes and just cotton cloth to burnish convex surfaces.....I've been successful...

    Yup......see how easy this is to learn and tweak? You can fix a lot of problems with collator angle adjustment, and a change in width of the shelf/ridge on the slide plate.......and neither of you had to post a 1000 times like me to figure it out....

    I'm going to answer only that part of the question: I won't be alone saying the Bonanza/Forster was/is one of the truly new and worthwhile presses that came along. But to that dynasty, I'm going to add one more, if not in the same quality dept,...
