Questions on reloaders, shell plates and powder slides
« on: January 09, 2018, 05:09:02 AM »
I have some shell plates and powder slides. They are apparently  Star accessories. The shell plates are blued. In the photo the plate on the left is marked #5, on the right #1. The diameter of the plate is 4-9/32". The center hole is 2-1/16". #5 seems to be 9x19mm and #1 is .38 Special.

I also have 5 powder slides. all are marked OO. In the photo from top to bottom:

3.9 gr 700x
2.8 gr BE
3 gr BE
3.7 gr BE
3.1 gr BE

I also have two Star reloaders. The reloaders are in VG condition and seem to work fine and appear to be complete with dies.

I wonder if anyone could let me know what these items are worth.

There are a few threads on this site that have some sale/resale details.
You could also check out listings on Ebay to get an idea, but do the sold data not the asking listings as some are overpriced and do not sell for what they are asking, especially on the reloaders.

Also Bruce Williams,   RBWillNJ  on this site might be interested in the whole lot as he owns Star Machine Works.
Good luck.

Doug,

I buy Star Universals, so I may be interested, give me a call.

The shell plates are not Star, not sure who manufactured them, but I'm thinking maybe they are from a Dillon 1050.   Star shell plates only have six holes and six shell openings.
