    I broke a doodad. It's the bolt that goes through the mount and arm that the unit pivots on. And as luck would have it, ... i have every other size bolt in my workshop except for the one that fits it... back to pan lubing for now.

    Is this a common problem on lubrisizers? Should I stock up on bolts for it (things only break when you need them)?

    No, that's unusual. Usually the handle "yoke" breaks. I have 2 hose clamps keeping mine together even though I have the new part--just haven't had time to replace it. Call RCBS on Monday. They will send you the part, no charge. They give good product service. You might ask for a new "O" ring set for the lube piston while you are at it. If you haven't replaced those yet, you are over due.

    Will RCBS ask for a receipt? It was given to me by a guy that used it to cast for competitions.

    No. RCBS doesn't care how or who broke the part. They have replaced things for me that I told them was my stupid fault and tried to pay them for it. Still free.

    Awesome! Thanks. I was going to just pick up a bolt, but I'll call them and have them send the correct one along with an o-ring
