Load Master Primer Feed Update:
Lee discovered the need for a slight revision to the new primer feed design for the Load Master. This new system was introduced this August. Lee contracted me at my day job to revise the tooling that produces the parts. I shipped the revised tool back to the molder on Monday the 24th. On Friday the 28th I learned that the revised versions were being assembled and tested. On Monday the 31st Lee released the new revised primer systems into circulation. I have already heard great things from a few of our customers that received early warranty shipmets of this revised version. When Lee redesigned the old system they eliminated the issue of crushed sliders when the operator does not follow the press cycles closely. The sliders were designed to be the weakest link in the system to prevent damage to other more costly functions of the press when the operator does not finish a press cycle and then starts a new one. The old sliders did their job perfectly however users complained about having to replace these sliders when the press handle was not pulled all the way down and pushed all the way back to the top to reset all the mechanisms to the start position. The new design eliminates all this but it created another small problem that did not show up in Lee's testing. It was an easy fix once we were aware of the problem. Watch for 90381 and 90383 in our "Service Parts" category, these will be the revised version.
