I aquired a 1972 camdex loader setup for .38's and was wondering how much it was worth after I get it cleaned up and running again.

$87.

Why not keep it? You can load a year's worth of ammo on it in two days. Or five days if you're shooting a thousand rounds every weekend.

I gotta say, that's a cool catch if you didn't pay an arm and a leg for the machine.

It's true, Obama is the Leader of Fools deluded to believe, "Everything is going to change now".
As for me, I will embrace what is Right more tightly than ever.

I can't consider it a score without pics, but that's me.

On the one hand, if there are no pics, it didn't happen.

On the other hand, drool, drool, drool.

Its been sitting in a shed for the last 5 years and the corrosion is mostly on the surface non essential stuff, not the moving parts.

Looks to be a pretty bottom end model or it's missing some/most accessories.

Probably cost more than a few grand to refurb/update.

Although a new fully loaded version can go for upwards of $20K, it wouldn't surprise me in the least if it failed to generate any interest at or above the $1K mark.

This is just a pic of the press itself. I have the case and bullet feeder as well as the primer feeder.

I have an circa 1970's ammoload machine and have priced both new ammoload and camdex. $25 to $30 grand for new and an old one might fetch $2000. if you keep it I hope you have a machimist on call . One die for my machine is for $300 to $400 and the slide rails are about $400 each , Bullet collators start at $2700 Mine will do a round about every second , if it doesnt have a melt down . You'll also need a primer tube filler $1350 new All commercial grade . If it was in 223 and by the way all the brass needs to processed first , you could load for a light infantry company in a week if you had a barrel of 223 roughly 40000 pieces and all the other goodies you need . Could be a nice winter project.

Trick is finding an older one that hasn't been abused to the point of having problems; like you mentioned. Of course, stuff wears out on them and they are $ to get fixed.

Definitely not a Dillon machine.
