Sometime within the last year I saw (or dreamed I saw) in a catalog items to trim brass using a drill press. Since I don't have one, I didn't pay too much attention. I've looked thru Midway, Dillon, Sinclair and Kinneston (?) catalogs with no luck.
Does anyone do this or know where I can look for the items to do this?

I've been using one for years for all my oddball calibers that I do in volume. It's made by Lyman, or at least it was. I don't know if they still list them, but I know I've used mine for at least 20 years. It's about the only way to trim M1 Carbine cases, just to name one.
I use a Dillon case trimmer for .223, .243, .308, .30-06 and 8x57. All the other calibers are done on the drill press.
Hope this helps.

The LEE case trimmer can be used on deprimed (boxer) brass in a drill press. You just have to have a piece of flat plate under the brass.

The Lyman product wasn't on their site as far as I could tell. I have found the Forester Power Case Trimmer on their site. Trying to find it on Midway. I'll keep Lee in mind. They are usually pretty reasonable.
Only problem I see is that it uses Forster collets and pilots. That's my problem. I have some sized brass. The standard pilot is too large, so I ordered a custom pilot from Forster and I don't get case mouths that are uniform- vary depending on how you rotate them to measure with the caliper.
