How did you do that, how hard was it, and what did it cost you?

Someone has put their Mech Eng degree to good use. :)
Very nice, guessing from the amount of bagged brass in the background, you keep the machine running a lot.
Thanks for sharing the video.

One smart cookie! It's so obvious after you see how the thing works but impossible without seeing it in action. Great work!

I don't sort nearly enough brass to build a "sorter" like that...but goldurnit if I don't want to build one now just for the sake of doing so!

The Shell Sorter is still faster than any other method and more accurate. The nested shells do come apart with some shaking. They do have a new plate for separating the 380 from 9mm.
Your grandkids or neighbor kid can get a lot more sorted if you put one of those in their hands, and they don't have as much exposure to lead.
