armydad Posted January 11, 2017 Share Posted January 11, 2017 Yo Brethren - I'm new to the Super 1050, but have had it apart for cleaning and lubing several times - so by no means an expert, but familiar with its components. I bought it off this forum in near new condition, several months ago. It was setup for 9 mm but I bought a toolhead and set it up for processing 5.56 and banged out about 3k cases. I reinstalled the 9 mm toolhead to load, but it wouldn't feed primers without me manually fiddling with the slide actuating lever (if it was full rearward, I'd pull it forward and a primer would usually fall into the primer slide cup). I've scoured this forum and talked to Dillon today. Dillon offered suggestions but I was at work so could not be in front of the press during the conversation. This is as far as I've gotten: if I cycle the press very slowly, and I mean very slow, as the primer slide slides back to pick up the next primer, it will feed about 100% (10 for 10 primers tested). If I cycle the press even close to a normal speed, it will not catch the new primer. This is everything I've tried to this point: ensured magazine fill cap is seated but not tight ensured blue tip in good condition (fed primers down it and they flowed out smoothly). I even put a new cap on and tested it. It worked the same. ensured the primer slide was smooth, with no obstructions/friction, and that it slides to the primer slide stop. My primer slide has the brass roller. I polished the cup where the primer seats in the slide and manually cycled the slide, without the primer arm/cam assembly installed to ensure primers fell into the cup, and it worked fine (10 primers tested). re-installed the primer arm/cam assembly, ensured it was a close to parallel to press as possible and that it was not binding. The primer slide passes under and past the fill tube to the rear of the press when the back of the slide contacts the stop (over-travel, but I believe this is normal. I tried it again with a .45 ACP case on the follower but no difference. For more weight, i put a 147 grain, ACME bullet under the .45 case, but the extra weight did not help. Prior to the polishing but after some adjusting, the primers would occasionally fall out the bottom. I can't figure out how this happens. After polishing and more adjusting, the primers feed if I cycle very very slowly. If I try to cycle the press at a normal speed, it won't feed primers but will occasionally shoot one forward and out of the top, over the shell plate - and it comes out . I can't figure out how this is happening either. The channel for the primer slide is smooth and there is no slop for the slide to move side to side - at least that I can tell. This about covers it. I'v been playing with this every night for the past week and am out of ideas. Thanks in advance for your input. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
