Strong Mount

Must the strong mount be used with the SL900 or is it optional? If I use it I'm going to need a tall ladder and an oxygen mask to load shot. I don't know whether to continue with the set up or start over with the strong mount.  I really don't want to use the strong mount if I don't have to.

The strong mount must be used with the SL900. This is necessary for having a bin for loaded shells to eject into.

RE: Strong Mount

OK, thanks. I'll just get my pilot's license, a pressure suite and cut the legs off my bench.  I'm 5'3."

Or I can figure a way to mount the bin on the side of the bench and guide the shells to it.

Garfield,

  Thanks, I now have coffee all over my screen, but still funny.

RE: Strong Mount

You could do what I did on for my 650.   I made a new bracket that is about 8 inches shorter out of 1 inch copper pipe and two 90 degree elbows.  Then cut the tube to match.  You should be able to get the hull feeder below the shot feeder pretty easy.

RE: Strong Mount

Divejj, sorry about the screen man.  And Icb, not a bad idea.  What I wound up doing for the finished rounds was to fabricate a rectangular funnel, that's connected to a rectangular descending curved 2 sided ramp, which in turn empty's into a padded ammo can.  The can is setting on a 2'x2' bench on rollers and place next to the SL900 and can be rolled out of the way when not loading.  Total drop from press to can is about 8 inches and the curve helps keep the shell speed down.  Works slicker that pig snot.  It does help to have a friend who has access to a cad/cam setup and another friend who owns a plastics forming company who took the cad/cam blank and formed the whole thing out of clear acrylic. And it cost less than a Pilot certificate.
