Re: Compressing loads?

Now that you mention it Jon, I remember trying the vibrator top, setting the case directly on top of it, like you said it was counter productive and sticks were hopping all over. I never tried to put anything in between it to soften it up a bit. I settled the cases by tapping light and quickly on the bench about ten times each, I never had a drop tube.

Re: Compressing loads?

Yeah, you need to play around a bit to see what works. I don't set the cases down on anything, I simply touch the base of one while holding it in my hand to the (already vibrating) machine. By touching it at different spots, how hard you press it into the machine, etc, you can vary how much vibrating goes on.

Jon, I was just touching them for a second while holding them too.
