    This is a long shot but does anyone have a picture of a modified loadmaster with the led light in the powder Station. The mod is drilling a hole in the carrier and inserting an led light to shine up through the case. If you see light a primer was not inserted in the previous station.
    I’m interest in seeing the inside of the carrier and how you directed the light to shine up through the case. I drilled my hole and used a 9v battery for testing and can’t get a mount set up to get light to shine directly up through the case so its visible while loading. My led is rated for 12v so maybe with full power it would work?

    I have not finalized mine yet, but I have been trying to avoid drilling the hole in the carrier, but I don’t think that’s realistic after doing some testing.

    A while back I purchased some of these to use in one of my kids lights from ikea, so I have extras.

    KINGSO G4 LED Bulb 10 Pack 3W Bi-Pin LED Light Bulb 48×3014 SMD 20W Halogen Bulb Equivalent Silicone Coated Shatterproof 220 Lumens 360° Beam Angle AC/DC 12V – Warm White https://smile.amazon.com/dp/B00UAALVM6/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_api_glt_fabc_425AMZA1R9ZXKMVD4FGE?_encoding=UTF8&psc=1

    I cleaned out all of the primers and the idea was to keep the cover open on the bottom and let the primers fall into a half sized Chinese food soup container; however the open cover would hit against the bottom of my in-line fab Mount and not allow a full stroke. If the cover is partially closed, the primers don’t drop out like I want them to. The wires do however fit, and the bulb just sits in there and didn’t need a lot of adjustment as I imagine some of the videos I have watched where they use leds from rc cars or a 5mm led.

    I’ll be back near my press next week, I’ll post a pic then.

    I used epoxy to get the light directly under it. Works great

    For anyone who has done this, can you post a link to where you got the LED lighting? I have seen some on amazon but many reviews complain of ultra thin leads etc. so I am concerned it won’t be durable.
