Adjusting the Handle Angle

I've noticed with the roller handle on the upstroke to seat primers, that it pushes against the collection bin. I thought maybe adjusting the lower shaft on the actuating arm would do it, but that didn't seem to work. It doesn't block the handle, but the concern is that it prevents me from making a full travel when seating primers. So far, I haven't had any seating issues, though. Should I just ignore it?

RE: Adjusting the Handle Angle

Mine bumps the collection bin also, but since the bin isn't attached solidly it gives a little and doesn't affect the end of the up stroke. You should be fine.

RE: Adjusting the Handle Angle

I solved two problems with one change. My handle hit the bin, but the bigger issue was the height of my room. My reloading room is in a converted dormer on the third floor. The ceiling slopes from a high of 6 1/2 feet to a low of three feet. My bench is low so the case feeder and bullet feeder are a mere 2 inches from the ceiling at the closest point, making it a challenge to refill with anything but small handfuls. I picked up an "ergo handle" from In-Line fabrication, a roller handle with a bend that puts it over the top and slightly beyond the bin on the upstroke. I can now stand more upright and see everything I need to.
