Original Square Deal

I recently inherited an original Square Deal which if the date is correct dates it to 3-18-1987. I know I'm missing some parts that have broke off and the dies and tool-heads look to be somewhat rusty.I also have several bags full of parts that I may or may not need to keep. Seeing as the B has some updates if I were to send everything in for a go though, cleaning , and replacement of worn parts would Dillon put on the new updates? As far as the dies and tool-heads go is this also something covered under warranty?

RE: Original Square Deal

Cleaning and lubing the machine is not covered under warranty. Replacement of broken parts is of course warranted. We do offer a clean and lube service for $67.95, which also covers shipped it back to you. The "B" upgrades will cost about $50, and they can be easily installed by either you or us. No labor charge to install them, just the cost of the parts. Regarding the bags of parts, I suggest sending us clear photos so we can identify them prior to you shipping them to us, if possible. This way you don't pay for more shipping than you have to. Please include your address when you send photos, so we can create a return authorization for you.

RE: Original Square Deal

I have an original square deal i purchased around 87 i have only had to replace a few parts one of the best reloaders i have owned and dillon backss it up. i can tell you all you need extra once up and running is primer tube ends for both the pickup tube and primer tube for the machine, lightly tighten the thumb screw that holds the primer tube in overtightening will crush primer tube end. the spare parts kit has everything you need. i would say about every 10k rounds those ends need some help. i have replaced all the bushings for the handle and the corner bushings for the piston but i reloaded a-lot before it needed that.
