My reloader broke please help

My old trusty MEC has become temporarily incapacitated the part that holds the shot bottle has become detached from the base it was attached to. I wonder if I should try to find a used semi-progressive or just fix it. It takes a looong time to load a box of shells with it easily 20-40 minutes so a progressive would help that a lot.
Thank you in advance,

I'm sorry -this PC does not have the bookmark.

MEC gives GREAT service, call them and the will ship out to you the chrome colored top really fast! Don't forget extra gaskets and anything else you may need while you are it.

At one time I had 10/ 11 MECs. I used the single stage for all serious competition loads and load testings. I am of the belief even if one gets a 9000, one still needs a single stage.

IIRC last time I ordered a part for rebuilding one bought in a yard sale - I had the part shipped to me within 4 days - COD .

Edit: Here is the addy:

It is pretty easy to rebuild a MEC press, but if I wanted a new one, I would look at the 9000.. I have one and it works pretty darn good.
