I came in just to say again, 'nicely done'!! The video's are well done and informative, also.  I congratulate you on altering and bringing back to life an interesting machine.

I would like to own one of those as a project and the only progressive press I would feel comfortable using.

One question is the Lee powder dispenser 'setup' to be automatic drop or do you have to manually dispense it into die/case?  Was that an easy conversion mix of brands?

It is an auto dispenser when the case goes up into the expanding step.

Ok Bryan, now I see how the powder measure works. I was wondering why you put your finger over the case when it went to the next station,,, is the move that violent ?? It looks like it ought to be a smooth running machine once you get the primer situation fixed. But it still looked like RCBS made an overly complicated press.  :D Still looks slick though. Waiting on the next installment.

I must have missed #10. Probably watched out of sequence. ;) Is that the proper primer tube that's on there ?

It is a very smooth machine but it can be complicated when something doesn't work.

I put my finger over the case to keep the large volume of powder from spitting out

Here are the videos in sequence.....I learned a lot and some things changed as I progress. Stupid youtube redirects and does not take you to the playlist but rather the single video.

The link to the playlist is below but you will have to copy and paste into a new window and add the https://www.  in front of the address

Bryan, that is a neat rig you?ve put together. Don?t know if I?ve ever seen one in operation before now. Rube Goldberg must have worked at RCBS.
