Those work fine, I have an RCBS one but without the little pilot shaft thing on the debur side.
I should say they are fine, until you have a pile of brass to work through then they turn into torture devices.
It has made me shop for a case prep center.

I've used countersinks for years (machinist, mechanic background). I like a 60 degree for removing primer pocket crimps and cleaning up case mouths. I've attached file handles, used one in a hand drill and drill press, and just by hand...

Been using the same RCBS chamfer and deburr tool for over 15yrs. And I even bought it used. So it has many years on it.

I've owned and used about every type of chamfering tool ever offered on the reloading market, and even more that were custom one-of-a-kind. Currently the best I know of among commercial hand types is made by KM precision. It comes in a couple sizes, and it's main feature, aside from it's obvious superior quality, is that it can be set to cut to a specific depth. Thus insuring that case to case inside chamfer bevels are uniform. It costs more but well worth the difference.

I use the "ati vibration through hole" style countersinks in my mill, just hold the case up to them for a second and you're good to go. http://www.mcmaster.com/#countersinks/=leo88i
Have not found a good external chamfer tool yet. Probably going to just machine something out of tool steel. I made a bushing to hold the Lee chamfer tool in a mill collet, but I'm not happy with how the Lee cuts. It seems to smash the burr more than it removes it.

RCBS makes a really nice one. I bought the Lee about 25 yrs. ago and I agree, it just isn't all that great.

BTW, the RCBS one is made by Wilson, exactly like the one RC has posted.

I bought this as a replacement right from the start.
That power adapter is an interesting idea and I suppose would work in batch loading where you deburr all the rounds then chamfer. I much prefer chucking my lee lock stud into the drill and spinning the brass to trim (if needed), chamfer and deburr (with the Lyman 6 in 1), brush the inside of the necks and pass some extra fine steel wool over the outside for a little cleaning/polishing; then move on to the next case.
To each their own.

I concur with the RCBS tool.
