So until I get up enough balls to chuck my ten fiddy in the trash and buy an Evo, I'm trying to get it to run as close to 100% as possible.  Want to put a Mark 7 drive on it and laugh at those who still use the handle while ol blue does my bidding (makes shitloads of flawless .40 rounds).

 

Irregardless (hah just kidding... REGARDLESS) of the speed setting of the casefeeder, about 1 out of every 40 pieces of brass would get stuck between the shell plate and the adjustable metal lip while another case is stuck above it preventing it from falling down the chute.  The obvious answer is have part of the casefeed bowl ramp block stick out further and kick those offending cases back down before they become a problem.  Apparently 2 beer can tops wedged in there is just the right amount to have it stick out.

 

Beer and reloading does mix after all!

It's their new and "improved" one that's adjustable for rifle and pistol brass.  They really should have included 2 different case feed ramp blocks to make it more customized to what brass is being processed, but in the absence of another block other methods were used.

Ditto. I jam about 1/500 9mm brass.

This is not a problem I have ever really had. Maybe two or three times since I bought the press. My case feeder has been very reliable.

Same. The absence of issues is more noticeable moving from my LNL brass waterfall special.

Maybe if you were to paint them Dillon blue ,
You could call them new and improved 6 pack kit ,case feeder caliber adjustment shims,
now with handy storage rings for hanging then up on the peg board hook.

My old casefeeder has no such device molded in. Like roons, I use a ghetto mod of a taped half-shotgun hull.

 

If you drank better beer you could use a cork.

The casefeeder is the only part of my 1050 that's been trouble free*.  Now you have me wanting to tinker with it in order to change that.

 

* And by trouble free, I mean that when it occasionally jams, the only corrective action required is to reach in and give it an assist by pushing it.  However, as no disassembly, threadlocker, tools, feeler gauges, laser levels, cutaway cartridge cases, headspace gauges, dummy cartridges, test fitting, modification of decapping pins, and adjustment of screws in 1/16 turn increments are required in order to correct the deficiency, and because I've lowed my standards as to how reliably I expect a $1800 machine to operate, I'm willing to call this "trouble free" because in 1050 terms, it is indeed trouble free.

Beer and loading ammo always go well together.  Haven't tried wine yet though. Must try it during the next round of loading.
