    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

    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.

    Update on the Star Machine

    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.
