Star Reloaders / MA Systems Case Ejector Setup Help
« on: September 14, 2010, 05:31:56 am »
Does anyone have a good photo of a MA Systems loaded round ejector installed on a Star Machine they can post on the forum? I attempted to switch mine over to another machine & can't figure it out.

Thanks in advance,

Star Reloaders / Angle Lever Cam Adjustment
« on: October 23, 2008, 02:03:53 am »
Two questions regarding the Angle Lever Cam. First,  When adjusting it which way do you bend it? It would seem that it would be bent toward or away from the Primer Slide Angle Lever (toward the front of the machine) to effect more or less contact with the Primer Slide Lever. Would that be correct?
What is the significance of the number on the Angle Lever Cam matching the number on the toolhead?


Star Reloaders / Sizing Die Adjustment
« on: October 20, 2008, 05:06:51 pm »
I may have missed this in the STAR setup instructions or on previous posts but what is the proper procedure or clearance for adjusting the sizing die in the head after removal? Is it dependant upon what cartridge the machine is set up for or based on distance from the shell plate?

Thanks in advance. 

Star Reloaders / Star Press Variation
« on: May 14, 2008, 07:24:51 pm »
I recently picked up a press with what appears to be an extra screw in the base. I originally thought it was the #47 Rocker Arm Screw with a larger head but upon closer inspection It appears to be an extra machine screw that partially covers the Rocker Arm Screw. I have not seen this on any other Star press and the factory exploded parts view does not show it. It appears to be a factory installation.

Does anyone have any idea what it's purpose is? It almost looks like a lock screw for the Rocker Arm Screw. I posted a photo.


Star Reloaders / Different Decal Color On Star Toolheads
« on: February 04, 2008, 11:38:13 am »
I recently purchased a Star toolhead with a silver colored decal instead of a gold one. I'm assuming it's a newer head. Does anyone know when they made the change & were there any changes to the toolheads?

Star Reloaders / Star Powder Tube Thread Size
« on: November 08, 2007, 12:00:26 pm »
Does anyone know what the thread size is on the lower portion of the Star Powder Tube? I've got one that I need to clean the threads up on and would like to "chase it" with a die afterward if it is a common size.


Star Reloaders / Star Shell Plate Identification
« on: November 05, 2007, 09:19:38 am »
I have several Star shellplates that appear to be .38 caliber. All of them are unmarked except for one that has a "U" stamped on the underside near the center hole. Does anyone know what that marking means?

Also, is there any reference to what calibers the shell plates will fit and how to identify them. The earlier ones are not marked.
