I finally got around to making a reverse turret shaft. I posted DIY instructions in a different thread. See:

It's a case kicker. It ejects the case when he uses the press in single stage mode for batch processing.



Happy Hardware Hacking!

I made my own just to see if it was worthwhile. It really does work very well but I rarely use it. I use a drill stop for the collar and as can be seen just a couple of springs stuck on screw, screwed in a drilled and taped hole in the drill stop. I got these parts from HF.

I just made a prototype ejector out of a paperclip.

You want it to be loose enough to slide up and down the index rod, but tight enough to maintain contact with the shell casing during each ejection cycle.

Great idea! Is this wire strong enough, or was it just a prototype?

I made another one out of a thicker paper clip just in case :-)
