Good deal. Mine has been working fine, exept i had to add a razor blade under the primer seating plunger once the dinple formed. Also, only with 9mm my plate is a bit snappy spilling some powder. Tried adjusting timing and still the same. Only with 9mm. I do think i bent that plate using a bulge busting die, before i decided to remove the plate completely for running cases trough the bulge buster. On my to do list is to get rid on the twisting at the bottom of the stroke. It comes from the linkages, so im going to try some bushings or washers before i resore to adding the guide rod on the back of the plate.
I tried a razor blade but it snapped.

Toxic Masculinity lol....what a joke. We outta add Gillette to the snowflake company section.
Yes, add them. You won’t beleive how many soldier’s faces have been ruined by their blades. About 16 years using them 5+blade contraptions that are like 10$ ea. I went with a safety razor and astra blades(1k for7$). Couldnt be hapier. The only thing gilletes were good for was shaving berets.
 
I just got a warranty package from Hornady with a whole new set of case feeder brackets and other related parts. These are updates to stiffen the mechanism and make it more reliable. I was not having any issues, but saw the parts in a video. I really appreciate them sending them out for free even though I was not having any issues. I got them 3 days later. Great job.

I called them when I first started and had trouble with the pivot and body. they sent me another setup
 
I completely tore down the press and case feeder today. I deep cleaned and lubricated every part, joint, linkage, etc. I installed the new brackets and case feeder parts. They definitely do stiffen things up. Test running some cases through the feeder went very well. But, as I said earlier I was not having any issues before. After all that, I was too tired to do any good reloading, so I called it a day in the reloading room.

Take a washer "not a super thick one .125 max" and dimple it slightly in one spot with a drill bit big enough in diameter to center the primer seater punch. line it up with the press and put some epoxy on the back side of the washer. Lower the ram so it rests in the spot lining the dimple up. Let it sit over night or until epoxy is dry this will force the primer seater punch to stay centered on the priming stroke.
