Hi
Adjusting the shellplate like Lee says with the zero adjust
never works right. If a fiddle around with it I get it after a while
Any tips or tricks on how to do it ?
And where can I buy spare parts?
Thanks Bill

bfox: I don't know how Lee says to adjust the shellplate but
it is very straightforward. I assume you mean how the slots in the shellplate index to the dies above. First push the handle all the way "up" so the shellplate is at the bottom, note where the slots stop. If they "snap" into place because of the spring loaded "ball"under the bullet seating die, you are adjusted correctly. If they stop a bit a bit off, you need a Phillips head screwdriver, - place it in the large screw below the plate on the left side, turn it clockwise until the shellplate moves
counterclockwise and snaps into place. You are not screwing anything to tighten, you are just turning a nylon gear that moves the shellplate. After many loads or after a caliber change you usually have to adjust the indexing of the plate but it is not a big deal.
