In case you missed it, here are a couple pictures of a Wemco Williams that just sold on eBay.

Wow!  What an interesting setup.  While I have a product manual for their product, it does not have picutres in it so I always imagined the setup to be different.   

Thanks for posting the pictures.  This is almost as good as seeing a picture of bigfoot in the wild. 
Off hand, do you remember what the reloader sold for on eBay?

It actually went really cheep.   $550 plus $100 shipping on a Buy it Now.   

I could have bought it, but didn't know what I would do with it.   It was set up for 38 Special.

I have some information about the dircks reloading machines.  My father, John Gillespie, bought the rights to manufacture the loadamatic 1800 from Joe around 1959 or thereabout.  He made some machines for the state dept and for police depts across the US.  My brother, Randy Gillespie, wants to sell the machines he has.  If interested please let me know.  We live in Kingman, AZ.

Do you know what area the Wemco Williams was shown on E-Bay? I am in the market to buy one as I used three of them when I was a commercial reloader. I also still have their 4 side brochure showing pictures of the unit and data.

I just have a search for Star in the Reloader area.  It's the only one I have seen come up in many years.  

Should have bought it.

   Hello           
         I just meet the son of the man who built the Tri-Standard inline reloaders. His name is Randy Gillespie and he knows Joe Dercks. He has 25 assembled machines and parts for about 25 more. I have several pictures and video of them in operation.  Contact me to see photos.       [no e-mail]@.com

I have two WW automated loaders that i regularly use.
Both have been converted to dc power and speed controllers
installed with reverse.
The originals did not allow for a taper crimp station but my
machines have them  also.
Being experienced with star loaders for 40+ years I had to
improve the "pull the handle,index,add a bullet and repeat, cycle.
If your machines, work well I would consider buying the lot of them
