Station Photo Crimp Starter

Your new 600 Jr. Mark 5 has a new spindex which when properly used will almost never misfold.

The Spindex may be removed by pulling down. Replace by pushing up. The nuts on the stud are for adjusting the spindex up or down to give more or less of a crimp start Photo #24. Changing the crimp start more or less will sometimes improve a final crimp. It is necessary to put the same crimp on a shell that it originally had. If you wish to crimp paper shells, a smooth cone crimp starter is available.

The wad height indicator marks Photo #22 are for reference only. This adjustment is used to compensate for different shot loads and different wad pressure when needed.. .To make the adjustment, loosen the alien screw in Photo #22. Now the tube in photo #22 is free to move up or down. In all cases the adjustment should be placed so that the correct wad height or wad pressure is obtained at the full bottom of the handle stroke. Moving the tube down decreases wad height and increases wad pressure. Raising the tube increases wad height and decreases wad pressure. Many times a poor crimp (one which is caused by the wad being too high or too low) can be improved by raising or lowering the wad height indicator. The wad guide if damaged is changed by forcing it up in the slot which supports it. Put a new one in the slot and force it down. Photo # 23 .
