Discussion in 'Handloading and Reloading' started by f.g, Sep 9, 2022.
I could detail my work if you are interested.
Yes, please elucidate.
I don't want to pollute this thread too much, which is basically dedicated to the "Six Pack Pro" or "Six P.P" for short.
Nevertheless, I send you a link that will allow you to see all my progress!!!
I sincerely hope that your community of reloaders will tell me what you think of the work of the humble little French reloader that I am!!!
I don't have problems with my OAL, LHT as you call it with my ABLP. Mine holds the same tolerance as my Hornady AP press does.
Depends on how good your components are.
Are you using mixed brass? My brass is sorted and trimmed if needed, for both presses.
The case feeder was printed by a friend and I made the DC electrical assembly.
The cases slide well in the pipe and none get stuck because the inside of the pipe is smooth.
Maybe I should make lots of cases that have the same size and see what happens.
thanks for the advice
Does everything on the bench keep track of the rounds? Count down to empty press?
So, if you wish, it is with pleasure that I will translate (with the help of MrGoogle) the thread that I wrote, some time ago, on a French Forum.
I had posted two small video concerning the functioning of my "reload box"
Tell me what you think !!!
Very cool stuff sir. Thank you sincerely for sharing.
In my last post, I presented to you the vibrator system coupled with the "Lee Pro Disk" dosing machine... All I needed then was to make a small box intended to accommodate this module to finish this project.
What was originally supposed to be just a simple box was gradually expanded and enriched with a few more small instruments that I use a lot during my reloading sessions.
This project is now finished and tested
I present to you with pleasure the little box that I baptized "La Box”
1- Front Panel
In addition to the vibrator, I have included in the Box, a Chrono and a counter to answer the questions that many of us ask ourselves when we recharge as well as:
- a double USB charger to charge a phone, E-cig or power an electronic scale, etc...
- a fan to ventilate the Box
- a Voltmeter to control the supply voltage of the Box which is 12V
For optimal use of the Box, I have made sure that all the modules can work independently.
The space below can be used to store small control equipment: Scales, caliper, etc ...
2- Rear facade and Interior of the Box Detailed view of the rear facade
The Box is equipped with jack sockets for quick and easy connection and has an additional 12V output to power ...(more on the next episode !!!)
Inside view of the Box
3- Press Link / Box
This wooden support was rather practical but, to my taste, very unsightly so I replaced it with ...
... this PLA box whose function is: to accommodate, protect and hide the switches that control the counter and the vibrators
The operating principle of the link remains the same: the metal bracket activates the vibrators by passing in front of the magnetic sensor.
To operate the counter control (the limit switch), I added a small Teflon screw: it presses the limit switch which triggers the counter each time the plate is lowered.
:thanks: Thanks to my friend Phil who made this fantastic case :thanks:
A little photo of my little reloading workshop.
Your setup reminds me of a Ikea reloading room. Very nice & European
Oh, homemade counting systems, there are a lot of them... some look alike and others are different but all are equal (more or less)...
I realized my Setup myself ... I had to rack my brains to find a good layout because I don't have much space in my garage and so I was forced to occupy only a very small place.
