Case Feeder Set Screw

The mounting screw design could use some serious improvement.  Over time, the angle of the casefeeder started to sag in the front until the case feed tube would bind up the motor on/off limit switch.  When I tried to tighten the mounting set screw a little, the metal threads that are formed into the main case feeder plastic houseing pulled right out.  The problem is that this is setup as a set screw rather than having a threaded hole in the upright mounting bar.  I drilled and tapped the upright mopunting bar with the same screw size (1/4-20) and added a flat washer on the outside of the plastic.  This seems to be a much better approach and holds the case feeder in place better.  Problem solved.

Hopefully, a future improvement for Dillon.

RE: Case Feeder Set Screw

Was it difficult to tap the thin wall tube? And does it still hold up today?
