    Amazon has the Hornady 150207 media sifter for $18.33.

    $48-$57 elsewhere.

    https://www.amazon.com/Hornady-1502...00GVF9XVU/ref=cm_cr_arp_d_product_top?ie=UTF8

    Reviews on Midway say this is a smaller unit and works well for small batches of stainless pins but not so much on dry media, as it is too small and fills up with the dry media. Check the reviews and see what you think.

    Anyway, I will use for stainless pin separation. Looks like a great price to me.

    I sure hope not, but we will see. Hornady shows the correct part number as 050207.

    I've been wanting a sifter for a while, but just didn't want to pay $50ish for it. I may be waiting a while longer. :(

    Things are always cheap when out of stock and unavailable.o_O

    The lowest I can find is around $$48 plus shipping, no way the same thing is $15??

    Kinda like the out out of stock Lee press thing.

    Well, thanks to @Chillydog for the heads up, I ordered one, showed it to my buddy at work who has been looking at one, and my father. So, that is 3 of us hoping that we got a great deal, and not a typo :)

    According to Hornady, part #150207, given in the Amazon ad, is the basket for their sonic cleaner. I hope you do get a media sifter, but don't be surprised if you get a plastic basket.

    That's what I see to. And the basket is obsolete on top of that.
    I think it is a plastic basket for the 9L Ultra sonic cleaner and they put the wrong picture there again. Talk about bait and switch.

    I realize that there is a good chance that this is the case. Description, user pics, and reviews are for the separator. I figure I have about a 50/50 chance...

    That’s awesome! I don’t usually get antsy about waiting for stuff ordered online, but I’ve really been wanting this to show up and see if it was a deal. I will know this evening.

    Mine is running late too. How did you get the $5 credit from amazon?

    I am not entirely sure, my wife handles much of that, but I do know we got an email from Paribus by Capital One saying our shipment was late, would we like to file a claim. I would expect just contacting Amazon CS and explaining that you are paying for Prime, promised 2-day, and didn't receive in the promised time, would achieve the same results.

    I'm waiting on mine to be delivered today.

    I'll have to contact Amazon about the delay.

    As most of you know I like Hornady. My entire bench is nothing but Hornady. I got the first media sifter from Midway and gave it a review. I gave it 3 stars. I give an honest review and I found that it was smaller than the RCBS and the rotating handle was not as stout as the Dillon.
    But now after a year, I have run the crap out of mine. The rotating handle that I thought would only last a month is still cranking away.
    Now, I use the Hornady 9L. Sonic cleaner, the Hornady M1 Vibrator tumbler, and the Hornady wet tumbler. I have filled them up to the max and the Media Sifter handles them all.
    So after a year of use, I would change my review to 5 stars.
    Now, you say you are out $14.00. I hate you. I paid over $50.00 for mine.

    Also contacted customer service and got a $5.00
    Promotional credit for the late delivery. Thank you @badkarmamib !
