The micrometer adjustment for the powder measure on my Dillon SDB. From Unique Tek . Way faster and easier than the bolt.

Also, the powder drain bar from Unique, allows draining the powder without removing the measure from the loader. Follow the directions however or be prepared to pick up the mess.;)

I bought an extended primer track plate with a ball bearing on the outside edge to remove sideways movement from JW Systems off Amazon.      GW

Double Alpha bullet feeder, die only no carousel. I made an adapter for a single polycarbonate tube holding 50 bullets. I load 5 of these tubes before starting loading. I hand prime 250 cases ahead of time. I can load 100 rnds in about 8 minutes this way.

RCBS Lockout die.  Have one on every toolhead.

 

Live Primer chute thing-a-ma-bob.  Don't remember who I got it from, but it's 3d printed chute that drops primer into slide out box.

 

UniqueTek spent primer fitting and tube that runs thru a hole in my bench to a big plastic jar with a hole in the lid.

After the Inline Fabrication Sky Light it's a tossup between the Primer Feed Stop Switch and the Case Feed Stop Switch for my 650.  Both are from Uniquetek.

A friend showed me those so I printed them up for both of us. Love 'em!

This wasn’t a mod I bought but on my 650XL I added a long plastic tube to the spent primer chute.  The used primers go into a bin under the loader stand, I don’t even know how much it holds, I’ve never come close to filling it up.

I just put a light kit on my 650 that I got from a guy on MeWe.  I put the LED in the center hole and the strip on the press frame.  Really lit it up!!

For me to get the new printer unboxed and set up after moving. Pm me in about 3 weeks!

I got a 3d printed case feeder for my Hornady LnL. Best $100  I've spent in a while! And I added a $25 led light strip that was worth every penny as well.

Now if I could just find a cheap bullet feeder that would drop lead bullets.........(consistently)

I added a 6mm dia. USB camera/bore scope (like $10 on ebay) down the center of the bullet seat die on my SDB.  The press geometry prevents you from seeing small charges in a tall case, e.g., 38spl.   The scope lets you visually confirm powder charge before setting bullet on the case.

A mechanic's mirror that allows me to see down into the the brass hopper to see how much brass is left.
