On the left side of the press you will see a chrome bolt hanging down from the frame. This is the primer depth adjustment bolt. Using two 7/16 wrenches, loosen the nut with one wrench while holding the bolt with the other. Run the nut toward the head of the bolt and turn the bolt up into the press several turns.

Place a case with a spent primer into station 1. Pull the handle twice to advance the case to station 2. Push the handle all of the way down to bring the carrier all of the way to the top of the stroke.

Pull down on the primer rocker arm and screw the bolt down until it makes firm contact with the rocker arm. Release the pressure by lowering the carrier slightly. Place one finger on a flat on the bolt head. Adjust the bolt so that it moves downward out of the frame two bolt flats. Hold the bolt with one wrench, being careful not to change the adjustment and tighten the nut against the frame. This is a preliminary adjustment, we will check it more carefully later. VIDEO
