    I like to ask can I up grade the Lee Auto-Disk Powder Measures Part #9058
    with the lee Pro Auto-Disk Update Kit #90377 and the charge bar #90792
    I seem to have cracked the plastic hopper screws on the #9058
    I am using the lee classic progressive turret press 4 stage set-up

    Yes, you can use the Pro Auto Disk in place of the regular Auto Disk (you'll experience less powder leakage). If you are ordering the Pro Auto Disk for the turret press, be sure to use the return spring and the pull back lever from the turret press as the Pro Auto Disk upgrade kit comes with the chain/pull back lever meant to be used for Pro 1000 press. You can also use the adjustable charge bar in the Pro Auto Disk.


    Use these:

    Not these meant for Pro 1000 press:

    the Pro upgrade works great (used it on mine) Just having the thumb nuts and studs to remove the hopper vs phillips head screws makes it worthwhile.

    Lee will replace that damaged hopper for free.

    Even if you get a free replacement for the hopper the Pro Upgrade is very worthwhile. I bought a Lee Auto-Disk about 6 years ago and within a few weeks sold it off and replaced it with a Pro Auto-Disk. It's a superior tool...

    I agree with the sentiments of the other posters.
    Yes, you can use the Pro auto disc, and yes, it's absolutely worth the upgrade, and yes, use the spring return. :D

    I have and do not like the charge bar at all, but that's just me. Others swear by them.

    I do like and use the disks for some loads.
