Sure, this will work. However, putting about 20 empties in the tube and running the handle for about a minute sort of defeats the purpose.

If it was a cashflow thing, like buying the case feeder the next month, then ok, manual feeding will work. As a long term solution, manual feeding is a waste of a very good press.

I have heard that some people extend the feed tube in an attempt to load even more cases.
