Hey guys im having a problem with my electric hopper. I have an empire reloader. My problem is that the prongs keep falling off. I attatch it to the spinner in the middle but it just keep falling off as im using it. Not sure how to fix it. What do you guys suggest?

prongs? spinner? Can you get a picture of what you're talking about? Those are fairly nondescript.

Edit: I think I understand the problem. Your drive cone (the part with 5-6 blades on it that spins) won't attach properly to the gear. This is because you took it apart without knowing how to put it back together most likely. There's a guide on aligning the pretension spring inside the housing here: http://www.pbnation.com/showthread.php?p=23078892#post23078892

Empire Reloaders don't have pretension springs... Reloader B's do, though!

Ya that doesnt work with my hopper. Mine doesnt have any of those parts. Basically its just a stub gear with a drive cone that just slips on (I think). Anyways that page didnt appear to have anything i was looking for. If it does could you point out the section for me? Thanks.

I'd go to Empire's website and contact their tech support. They'd probably have a better answer for you.

I'd either call Empire, or get a washer to put on top of the impeller with a longer screw to make sure that the impeller doesn't fly off.
