    The beginnings of a 2D floor plan to scale, based on your dimensions. As you can see there is one discrepancy in dimensions you posted. Would be nice to know how high the case feeders are. and the mounted 750's. Also is your door width...

    Okay, back on topic! ......I got a bunch more .357's deprimed using 2 36" 7/16" tubes loaded twice......I even tested what a wrench in the works would do (a single case dropped in upside-down.;)) So in the video below, on the second tube the one...

    I used Formica for it's resistance to most everything I can manage to drop or spill on it, and it cleans up well even spilling solvents.....IOW's ..... I know me well. ;) One thing I plan to do sometime is raise the face up a 1/16 or more, so...

    Well, that's a foot pedal to raise my Forster trimmer up and down on a case....makes it a sit down operation. The mod will accuse me of going off topic if I show you a video of it directly so I'll give you the link to it. ...

    How tall are you? Are you planning to use loading stands to raise your presses? Are you going to build this yourself or hire it out? Are you going to do all your loading standing, sitting or some of each? Adding bullet feeders? What about...

    You are right I disagree, but I doubt you are sorry about it. I thought the OP was posting in hopes of finding something less boring. The longer you spend depriming the more boring it is. The pill bottle doesn't make the "boring" part any faster....

    The difference is whether you want to fiddle with angled bullets and having to straighten them and hand feed them into your seater. The "M" step is better called a pocket, because that's what it does. In the pocket bullets can fly fairly fast...

    Well, we were way off thread topic.....and we weren't getting anywhere with the stupid Vimeo. They make me mad. They give you a hosting place for videos that's supposed to be free then they keep taking away features until we're left with nothing,...

    I've remodeled and built new medical facilities, and have removed and installed walls of lead in X-ray rooms. Saying that's heavy stuff is an understatement. And those employees who had to deal with it were given the scraps and even whole panels...

    I know this is a Boolit forum....but I've never cast anything. The big question is whether I have enough good brain cells left to start still another hobby.;) Why am I here? Because it's the only 3d printer/reloading forum in the world!!! Come...

    Thought I should share some interesting info TylerR shared concerning the lack of a .45 Colt APP insert. Turns out there already is one......called the .44 Magnum insert. Here's why...... The inside diameter of the APP insert's barrel has to be...

    TylerR asked me if I'd mind printing that 30-06 insert and trying it out on my APP. Neither he or I shoot 30-06 so I had to scramble to find some spent cases.....and I thought I succeeded. Only problem was they were .270. But there was ONE...

    Oh....I thought I did that for 270. 30-06 I don't have yet.....just a matter of opening the neck a little, tho. Here's a short vid of the .270 one....I will email the source to you.

    Honored ..... the .270 one works perfect too.:) You don't have one for 30-06 do you? Now we need to fix the main bracket...........just KIDDING! That idea was the ultimate genius. Really TylerR, you ought to patent and sell this whole APP...

    Okay, so you've modified the top of the insert for #3 to be dropped directly in now? With it's smaller id (than the #4) cases should be less cranked than in the #4 going down....which looks better. My non Lee 91/6 tubes are 3' long......filled up...
