I am new at reloading. My wife gave me this reloader several years ago and it ended up on a shelf until a few days ago. Trying to set it up and have found that there seems to be a lot of parts that don't belong. The 45ACP die turned out to be a 9mm and the 38 Special was a 44 Special. All that is ok since I have those calibers as well, but I need some help with the auto-disk powder measure.

Can anyone tell me why my Lee Deluxe Auto-Disk Powder Measure does not retract? Any help will be greatly appreciated!

What kind of press are you setting it up on. Some use a spring and some use a pull chain.

Maybe http://leeprecision.com/html/HelpVideos/video.html can help.

Welcome to the Forum, harley.
Yes, we need to know what press you got.
We assume it's a Lee, but is it P1000, Loadmaster, or Classic Turret, or one of the others.

On my pull-chain press, I switched mine ProAutoDisk to a spring return because I was sick of the chain breaking and the chain lever not having enough 'throw' for the adujstable charge bar.

Pics of both chain and spring setups, as well as conversion instructions and parts, listed here:
