Mr Jones was in declining health two years ago. I bought a 200 grain Saeco mould shortly before his last few published posts.

Is anyone out there still knowledgable about the machines?...availability of different/adjustable powder charge bars?

Its too good a piece of equipment to just kick to the curb.

Thanks,

salty

Maybe someone over at the Star Reloaders Forum can help:

They were a large help. The Star folks are part of the 'Simple Machines Forum'. The only thing 'simple' is me.

Kinda slick.

I thank you.

Although the Star is now out of print, like the 'mid 60s' GTO, it has a dedicated following.

One gent machines powder slides that have a std 'hole'. That 'hole' allows various inserts/sleeves to accomadate different powder types and amts. I think the sleeves are std for the Hornaty or Pacific powder measure and easily obtained.

Another Star deciple machines adjustable powder slides.

Other goodies are available.

Thanks again.

I had 2 of them, bought em cheap sold em higher. I used them for a little while but my Dillons are definitely more modern. However they are built like a precision watch and last forever. I also had 2 of the bullet swagers and a bunch of dies with them. I bought both of them and about 15 different dies for $75.00, cleaned them up and resold all of them for $600.00.
I stll have a few Magma bullet molds I am going to hold on to though.
