The entire plug (that the valve rod passes through) is lifting on my new Lee pot (first use). This is not the drip that you can adjust with the screws. I was able to reseat the plug to stop the flow, but, not till I and dumped almost two pounds of lead onto the RCBS ingot mold that was serving to catch the drips. I got the flow stopped by banging the rod with my screw driver handle. I tried it again and first it poured correctly through the valve, then the entire valve plug lifted again and I had to bang the plug back down (3/8 inch plug lifting will move a lot of hot lead quickly.)
Has anyone had this happen before? I don't want to try to stake it. I will call the Lee service number this morning. I have no IDEA what happened.
This newbee thing is tough. thanks rc
