Star Reloaders / Re: charge bars

They fit as shown in the third picture, but the rifle machine and 223 pistol machine use a Rifle tool head which differs in several ways from a standard tool head. 

Interesting, Bruce.
The reference marks on the adjustable powder bars are a handy addition.
Where do the parts above the charge bars in pic #2 fit on the machines?

The Dillon SuperStar conversion kit for loading .223 on a Star Universal included a 5/8" adjustable powder slide.   I have a Super Star Kit and have used it to drop 22-25 grain charges for .223.

Star Rifle and Star .223 Pistol machines have a totally different powder charging system.

Do Star Universals set up to load .223/5.56MM use an even thicker bar?  Maybe custom built.  Say. 3/4" or 1" to handle the small rifle powder charge.

The Nominal measurements for Star powder slides is as follows:

All powder slides have a nominal width of 5/8" and a nominal length of 4 1/2"

"0"  Powder Slides are 1/4" thick

"00" Powder Slides are 5/16" thick

1/2" Powder Slides are 1/2" thick

5/8" Powder Slides are 5/8" thick

Star never used the terms 000 and 0000 so far as I have seen.  Those are terms that Rich Daniels used for the 1/2" and 5/8" powder slides respectively.

The very earliest Star reloaders used a  powder slide that was smaller than a "0" powder slide.

Thank you, NYKenn. I will look at the items and post the info suggested.

Might want to check that you have both small (32 & 38) and large (45) primer feeds.

Also if you can list the powder bar markings for powder and grains, would help to determine which caliber they likely fit.

You could also contact Bruce Williams   RBWillNJ  on this site. He operates the Star Machine works site and would likely be interested in the package.
In my dealings with Bruce I have found him to be both reasonable and fair.

Good luck.
