The 2 primer tubes for the RF-100 are $50 each and would probably bring $40 each used.

Sell off a few things and you'll end up with a free auto driven 1050.

Looks like they added a "aftermarket" used primer disposal tube.

Should be able to remove that easily enough.

Idk about the different power supplies. I run a Mark 7 pro and a Mr Bullet Feeder.

How about the GSI bullet feeder power? Might be able to do process of elim.
Link Posted: 5/31/2020 9:36:50 PM EDT
Got it. Pic in GSI manual was close to one, so I took a stab and have the one for ammobot, it powers on.

Three of these also.
Link Posted: 6/1/2020 1:07:50 PM EDT
GSI says: "Quit making, so no parts for the bullet feeder, sorry"  Guess I'll have to fab a bullet bushing for the tool head and substitute a spring in tool head bullet rotating plate.
Link Posted: 6/1/2020 1:51:48 PM EDT
Got a RMA from Dillon,  $230.00 includes return shipping for rehab plus missing parts. Not bad to get a new machine back.  Now for Ammobot, to see if they have a rehab policy to check it over. It's the MK1 1.88.

You did good, real good. My vibrator (only one) is still going after all these years.
Definitely worth sending it in to get 'tuned'.

Thanks. Don't know what I'll do with three, always used stainless wet to clean brass.  Didn't find lids to them, going back Saturday to clean his small warehouse and look for more small parts for the  GSI bullet feeder. GSI no longer supports it, except for some small parts, springs and screws.  Don't have the bullet guide for tool head. Hope to find the RF100, found the tubes.

Thanks. Looks different than the two I have.  I figured out which one and powered up unit. Motor was confused with nothing hooked up, so shut down quick.  My drive wheel is out of round, was never on and looked bad, chain cutting into wheel when it went tight.  Probably why there was a spare wheel, problem is it's for the REV 3, chain larger.  If you have the REV3 can you get p/n from gear and other info (diameter, tooth count, chain measurement, pin to pin) below drive wheel. Have to source my own.

The REV 2 have a different chain size Than MK1? Was only guessing on the REV 3 drive wheel.

MK1 on top.

Jason Pruett from Ammobot was very helpful.. Chains and gears all the same from MK1 to REV 3, just needed to file some on tab that chain links connected to.  All good, chains on new wheel.

Only items available for the GSI bullet feeder. No one else has the plans to make more parts and it looks like GSI is not interested in giving them up or making more parts.. Kinda sad, looks like VHS(Mr bullet feeder) won.

I have these items available however, we do not take a credit card in house so should you wish to purchase
any of these parts, you will have to send a cashier’s check prior to shipment.

Is that your elusive bullet feed guide for the GSI

ETA..sounds like a pretty nice haul you partook in, congrats.

<---------------Not automated but have a S1050 with case and bullet feeder, you'll really enjoy the hobby more once you get it back reconditioned from Dillon. Bought mine cause I have more expendable cash than I do have time to sit there cranking out 300-400/hr on the RCBS Pro 2000. Got old fast.

Yes, that was the missing piece to the puzzle. 1050 arrives at Dillon Wednesday, think two week turn around.  Thinking about turning the 550 into a 300 blk processing machine, has the 223 plate already.  Not sure if it's worth setting up the auto primer, got used to hand priming them, Loaded a few thousand on the T7. Powder drop option would be better I think.  It did turn into quite a haul, grabbed three buckets of 9mm brass sitting there, wish it was .45, but it was free.  Need to find the 9mm kit for the GSI bullet feeder or buy MBF, until then I'm stuck with .45. Found more parts for the RF100, three plastic hoods(not sure why extras) and another LG primer tube, but no machine.

I think he just meant a standard 5 gallon bucket. Then you can put the shell sorters at the top of the bucket and just like that you're sorting brass.

I did this on an old midway dry tumbler but I assume they are similar.

Take the bowl that holds all the media off the tumber only. Leave the central post, that you use to attach the lid.

Then take a 5 gallon bucket and drill a hole in the bottom to have that central post come through the center at the bottom. Tighten it down.

The brass separator plates I had gotten from amazon years ago, not sure if they're still there.

Put the plates in the correct order, and slowly dump in the brass.

Separates out cases, and theres even a .380 plate. Excess dirt etc falls to bottom of the bucket.

Makes a pretty good racket but you dont need to have it on for more than maybe 20-30 seconds to seperate.

I'd take a pic but it's in storage right now.

Heres a good vid.

Finally went through buckets of brass. Ended up with 40 lbs of primed 9mm and 20 lbs off unprocessed 9mm brass. Seems I'm going down the rabbit hole of reloading. Not sure if I should invest anymore money in equipment, starting to add up quick, 1050 is .45 or just sell the brass. I like the hobby, just don't shoot thousands of rounds a year.
The 1050 made it to Dillon yesterday.

If they are notched at the tip, they are used to remove the primer bushing to change from large to small and small to large.

Really haven't looked at 550 yet? Thought is was a prime seater.  Yes, 1050 is rough,  Dillon has some work to do. Have been working on the GSI bullet feeder tool head, got the bullet wheel rotating  properly by hand. Needed some welding.



Collator is jamming up when bullets pile up as they go up the side, need to install an arm to knock bullets apart. Research showing it was  plagued with this problem and people returned them for a refund.  Collator was over complicated with a different ring for different bullet types.  No wonder they quit making them.
 

looking at some online, (pic not very clear), showed something else bolted to back panel.  Holes in my panel.

Dude man. You got a killer deal still if you got all that stuff including the AMMOBOT!

I'm not seeing anyone selling used one near me so I have to get a brand new one from DAA!



That's

1050
bullet feeder
primer feeder

Did I get a good deal?

maybe I shouldve gone with 750... Only gonna be loading millions of 9 and 40

Probably just like some of us.

Now where did I set that bushing driver?

After 2 weeks of looking for it, I guess I better order a new one from Dillon.

2 weeks after getting the new one, Ah, here is the old one. I better put it in a safe place so I can remember where it is.

2 months later. Where did I put that bushing driver.

Look for it for a week. Must've loaned it to somebody since I can't find it.

Oh well, Order another from Dillon.


Or depending on how many primer systems he had purchased over the years from Dillon, they might have included the bushing drivers with them.
