Lyman Gen 6 dispenser problem
I have already emailed Lyman about this, but thought that someone else may have experience with the same thing...
I have had this Lyman for 4 years and 2 months. NEVER had the first issue with it until last night. It might drift a 1/10th of a grain once in a while while running charges to which I just re-calibrate, but never any real issues.
Could not get the unit to calibrate. Kept giving me a "Cal 0" reading on the screen and beeped. Let it sit for over an hour and still got the same thing. In the meantime I noticed that the weight readout had drifted by several grains. Here is what seems really fishy... when lifting the 50 gram calibration weight or resetting it in its place on the machine the readout would shift. Same would happen when setting the breeze shield over the cell. Any touching of the machine housing would cause a shift on the readout. It has never done this before. Previously the only way to change the readout was more or less powder on the pan.
The Lyman is always unplugged after use, warmed up for the minimum 3 minutes or longer, and has not been moved from its spot on the bench in the entire time that I have had it.
The bench that it is on is isolated from the press bench and from the other bench with the shotgun loading presses.
While I am waiting on a response from Lyman, has anyone ever heard of or had this happening? This may be one of the farthest reaching websites, so I was just wanting to see if anyone else had any experiences with this. Thanks.
Still living under the curse, but one of these days I will shed this body, be clothed with an immortal one, and everything will be good.
