This unit doesn't like Winchester primers. However, Josh got me straightened out and now the unit is running great. I don't like how the primer tube angles back toward the machine. It is awkward to use like that as everything is facing away from me.

Worked flawlessly for the first 15,000 primers or so, then the hammer went out of adjustment. Well worth the investment, but get yourself a very small set of screwdrivers so you can adjust the wire connecting the actuator to the arm. Just like every other tool it will eventually need maintenance.

DAA PRIMER-PRO Collator

(74)
Manufacturers: Double-Alpha Academy
PRIMER-PRO NOTE
Some types of primers are tacky/sticky. These may not slide well through the slots in the Primer Pro Disk or down the Exit Ramp. This can lead to a slow output rates and/or poor exit ramp/hole performance. One simple solution to this issue is to apply a little silicon to the primers before loading them into the Primer Pro, as shown  here.

Another effective solution is to periodically clean/lube the Primer Pro plastic parts using a plastic cleaner/Polish or dry lube, such as Pledge, Cockpit spray cleaner or the likes. As shown  here.

With one or the other solution applied, all types of Small Primers can successfully be used.

The Primer-Pro is available for small primers only!

Description:

US PATENT 10,718,599

--------

The PRIMER-PRO by Double-Alpha is a unique new approach to handling primers, and the solution reloaders have been waiting for!

As any reloader knows well, manually filling primer tubes can be the most time-consuming and aggravating step in the whole reloading process, and few good automated solutions exist.

Until now!

The PRIMER-PRO by Double-Alpha is an innovative patent-pending design which departs from the traditional vibratory bowl solution used by all other automated primer tube machines. The PRIMER-PRO uses a collator type solution where the primers are allowed to exit the bowl through 20 precisely formed channels, ONLY if they are orientated in the correct direction (Anvil side up). If they are Anvil down, they will not pass through the channel, and rather slide back into the bowl as their channel reaches the top of the rotation, to enter again later, correctly oriented.

This rejection-type design makes it practically impossible for a primer to enter the output channel if incorrectly orientated, making this device extremely reliable. During development, we ran many successful tests in which 100 tubes were filled (10,000 primers fed) without a single up-side-down primer!

As the primers slide down the covered output-chute, they pass through an optical sensor which counts them and stops the collator once 100 primers have been counted into the primer-tube. The electronic processor board also monitors the sensor and is programed to stop the collator if, for whatever reason, primers hang-up on the exit hole and stack up along the ramp. The collator will be stopped before the primers stack all the way up and jam the collator. In such a case, the LED will flash quickly to indicate there is a problem. Once cleared, pressing the start button again will allow the collator to run and the count will continue from where it was stopped. Or alternatively, a long press on the button will start the count a new.

One of the most innovative design solutions of the PRIMER-PRO is the Output Actuator Arm, which is activated by a lever system off the Timing Disk at the bottom of the Collator Assembly. This Output Actuator Arm slides the primers from the bottom of the ramp slide, moving them over to above the output hole, holding them there for a split second to ensure they are static, horizontal and stable, and then retracting to allow the primer to fall cleanly down into the awaiting primer tube. This dynamic solution for the exit hole greatly reduces the chance of primers hanging up while exiting into the tube, a problem common with other automated primer fillers.

The PRIMER-PRO is currently available only for Smaller Primers, and handles Small-Rifle or Small-Pistol Primers equally well. A Large primer version may be offered in the future.

One Magnetic Collar for a Dillon Primer Tube is included with the unit. A PRIMER TUBE IS NOT INCLUDED! Since the PRIMER-PRO can refill a single Primer Tube faster than you can use the previous 100 primers in any reloading press, only one tube is strictly necessary.

However additional Magnetic Collars can be purchased separately, for those who prefer to fill multiple tubes before starting their reloading session.

The unit is powder by a 12v DC power supply (dual voltage, 110-230), which ships including a suitable European and US prong set (included). The power cord is 2 meters (6ft) long, and includes an ON/OFF switch in the cable.

NOTE: Primer tube not included.

Unfortunately, when I received the product, it had some of the same problems others had reported. I tried to troubleshoot myself using the guides for doing so, to no avail. I contacted DAA and they gave me some additional tips, including spraying the plastic surfaces with silicon spray. After implementing their tips, the device is now working 100% (maybe 1 flipped primer every 1000 rounds, if that). I give it 4 out of 5 stars due to the failure of the product to work right of the box for me; I didn't like that I had to struggle with and tune it. The upside is it now works as designed through about 5,000 9mm rounds with no additional maintenance or tuning necessary. Using S&B SPP.

A little expensive but it's like drinking good beer vs not good beer (no such thing as "bad" beer). Worth it! I don't have a lot of primers right now so I just dumped 4 boxes in the hopper and started playing around with it. Read the directions and wax as instructed. Works as indicated and since it's designed to fill primer tubes I'd have to give it "5 stars" because it fills primer tubes well. I have loaded very few rounds since I got it but have loaded maybe 20 pick-up tubes (and dumped them so I could play with the machine) and I haven't seen an upside down primer yet. Confident enough that I sold my most of old Dillon small primer tubes and applied the funds to pay for the Primer-Pro. If I had to do it again the only thing that I would have done differently was to get it sooner! Alex Ragulsky

Saw this on a video a couple days ago and thought, "what the heck?" Ordered it. As always, fast service from DAA! I am not a patient person so before I started fiddling with it I read (and followed) the directions, which included a suggestion to watch a video. I ended up watching 3 videos and felt comfortable. Took the system to my reloading room and without doing anything dumped 400 primers in the hopper. The system just didn't seem right. Slow. So I emptied the hopper, took the machine apart as described and waxed the friction areas and travel points with Johnson's Paste Wax--I didn't have anything else. Put it back together and ended up with a filled tube in 37 seconds! I didn't refill the hopper but continued filling tubes. The next tube was a little longer as was the third. The 4th was over 2 minutes. First tip--read the directions, watch the videos and wax the system. Second, when you are testing the system be sure to put the cotter pin in the primer tube before you hit the button or you'll enjoy the opportunity to pick up dropped primers. Negatives, the angle of the primer tube. Also no ready way to mount the system to a bench (yet). The clicking is loud but I think it serves as an alert that while I am loading the system is filling my tube. I use WSP primers and it worked. I'm an old fart and not sure that I'll live long enough to get my money's worth but glad I got it. Bottom line--I would recommend it and I would buy it again. Alex Ragulsky--Broomfield, Colorado

I gave this 4 stars instead of 5 only because the initial set-up of the collator took me longer than I would have liked. I did read the instructions in advance of using it, and the first attempt to load Tula primers took several minutes to complete. I followed the instructions to slightly loosen the 5 screws that hold the funnel to the plate, and found that it helped very little - and it allowed a primer to be loaded into the tube upside down.

I was disappointed in the product's operation, so began reading threads about it online. One of the things I discovered was a suggestion to clean the plastic parts that the primers would come in contact with using Pledge furniture polish. After fully disassembling the unit, cleaning the parts with Pledge and carefully reassembling the unit, I was very pleased to see primers filling the tube in about 30 seconds! To date, I have run about 700 primers through this, all with good results and no flipped primers.

I would suggest that the suggestion to clean the parts with Pledge furniture polish be added to the manual as a troubleshooting step.

I push the correctly oriented too-tall primers over the hump with a clean zip tie. Just another clean-up chore, not a big deal.

DAA comment:

sorry you feel that way - but it does depend a lot on the brand of primers in use. some primers are tacky out the box, and require the silicon from time to time. others, do not at all need it.

we like the way it sits on teh desk and not elevated above it on stilts, but, tastes vary.

I have mixed feelings on this item. It seems to work well but it does get a little dirty after a few thousand primers and then then it needs to be cleaned or the primers will backup and not go into the primer tube.

It also leaves a small number of primers in the sorting system, a real pain to clean out if you have to change primer types.

It is all plastic and a very light. It has to sit on the edge of the table so it can get knocked of. Guess how I know that. It also breaks easily. Given the price I replaced it with the Dillon primer machine. This is cheaper but all it took was one tumble off my reloading bench and it is broken. Since it is all plastic there was no fixing it so it is a throwaway. The arm where the primers slide down cracked and it changes the feed angle.

Not sure the cheaper price was worth it. The Dillon takes up less space and is easier to use. The Dillon is more expensive.

Dear Scott,
The Primer Pro is designed to run with 300-400 primers in the bowl. For best output speeds.
If you do want to empty it completely, it’s a simple matter of lifting the bowl off and tapping it upside-down over a tray or flat box until all the primers are out. the bowl is easy off/easy on the center shaft.
I am sorry you broke the output ramp when knocking it off the table. If you email us for support, we will gladly send you a replacement part so you can repair your Primer Pro. changing the ramp is not too difficult and there is a video tutorial I can share. It is designed to stand near the edge of the table, which allows it to be shorter/lower and therefor easier to fill. When not in use it can be moved back, with the primer tube removed.

So far I have only identified 4 primers that went in the wrong way. Pay attention to the warning lights. If it goes off dump the tube reset and start again, chances are you have an upside-down primer that made it down the ramp. I had to clean it after about 25K because it was getting gummed up but it was fast and worth the down time. The major down side is the unit is loud. The constant clicking loading up primers was actually louder then my machines running on autodrives. Overall good product and I would recommend it.
