By using a length of string, an elastic and a washer you can make your Dillon Precision Super Swage 600 'Automatic'.

First make a loop of string that goes from the nut on the end of the case holder to the handle. I tied my string off at the handle end. At the handle end you will need a washer of some kind for the string to sit on. I used a rubber washer from a garden hose.

You'll need to find the correct length by trial & error, to fine tune the length simply twist the string under the swager. Also, the set screw for the case holder detent needs to be backed off so it moves freely.

Next you'll need to secure an elastic in a manner like I have done in the video.

This is where you will need to fine tune the relation of the string and elastic so the swager operates properly. If the string is too tight it can cause the case holder to come down to late and the swaging head will ram into the case head. If the elastic is too strong it won't allow the case holder to come up very high. Adjust the number of twists in both the string and elastic until you find a nice balance.

Now re-mount your Super Swage, but this time you will need to keep it off of your bench slightly as not to inpede the movement of the string. I used three large nuts as shims.

As you operate the handle the elastic automatically pulls the case holder down into position and the crimp is swaged away. As the handle is returned to the upright position the string pulls the case holder back up. Replace swaged brass with crimped and repeat!
