PACT Timer repair good expeience

Recommended Posts

I just had a good experience with PACT Timer repair. Our club had 5 timers that needed repair. Went online, paid for a repair, and sent in 5 timers on Monday. On Friday I got all the timers back, fixed. A lot better than I expected. New batteries, sensitivity adjusted, problems resolved.  They repaired timers that we have been using for 12 years.  I was impressed.

I had a similar experience. Was extremely impressed with them. 

 

I think it needs mentioned that you are paying to get them shipped back to you. Not paying for the repairs. At least that's my experience.

No charge for the return UPS as far as I know. The online offer is for repair service, which apparently includes the return shipment.

Sure wish PACT had not discontinued their powder scales......:(

What makes them better than others? I have a digital scale with the infrared eye, paired up with a dispenser. I built a wooden frame to hold them both in alignment, but later upgraded to an RCBS Chargemaster combo. The big drawback with the PACT setup was no memory - every time it was shut down, you had to start all over calibrating, etc. for the new load.

You should check & calibrate your scale every time you go to use it.

Never used mine tied into a PM.

IIRC-Didn't PACT make the RCBS deal at one time?? :huh:

Not "calibrating" as in using check weights or confirming with another scale (which I do), but also calibrating how long to run in "fast" and "slow" modes with different powders & weights. It takes several minutes every time you shut it off or change charge weights for it to self-adjust/calibrate again.

Thanks for the extra info.

I was 'talking' only about the ck weight deal.
