    If it's a large bar you have to pull the bellcrank out so you can slide it out.

    That works too and will save you a minute or two, it's just not as cheap.

    The Taylor Tactical knob I described is about $10. Still, it's not practical for me to replace all seven I have.

    Some Home Depot stores sell plastic caps that fit over the adjustment bolts. I had one and lasted about a week when I accidentally moved the powder bar setting. I use a 7/16 nut driver when I need to adjust the powder bar settings.

    While you are going to spend big bucks on all that is recommended you might as well pick up a can of air so you can blow off all the powder spills that create a nightmare in the primer feed pockets.

    I plan to reduce that with the a lighter spring. I had the same issue with my LnL so, that is nothing new to me. You would think at least one of these manufactures would have addressed this problem by now.

    UB,

    Thanks for the info! I purchased 2 of the dent ball products. Though I'm not understanding the rotocam actuator, or the roller cam follower. Perhaps if I don't understand it, I probably have any need for it. Haha. Anyway, could you give me an idea of what they are? Thanks again, Steve

    all these years and I continue to learn something new!!! thanks!

    In addition to the light, I really appreciate having the bullet tray, tool set, and roller handle. I also did the bearing spring mod to reduce the jittery motion. You will love it!

    I went to my local bearing supply and picked up some thrust bearings and washers for my 650's. With no other modifications except the addition of oil, they are smooth and not snappy at all.

    If you are using a Strong Mount. I put a piece of dense foam. I think it was from a ¼” thick piece of fatigue mat about 5/16 wide and the length of the chute bin mount. Just slip the foam between the press frame and the chute, cuts down a lot of the noise of the finished round going down the chute.
