did you notice the black&decker drill I rigged onto my trimmer. that crank was wearing me out. I had one big arm and 1 small arm. I was starting to look like a fiddler crab,lol

I noticed it cause I got a little black & decker that I want to use with my Redding trimmer. Did you build something to set the driver on or do you just hold it?


I originally wanted to use it to do 223 brass but have since gotten a possum hollow trimmer. Ain't nothing faster for me right now.

I grinded the end of the trimmer to fit inside the drill. Ill take a close up of it when I get home and post it. and no its light enough that it holds itself up, plus it bends in half so it kind of slides itself. from the looks of yours I would get a bit that fits inside the drill and grind it down so you can thread it to screw into your trimmer where the handle screws in (if thats how it works) so you dont have to alter the trimmer.

Here are the pics and a video to show how much faster it is then the crank. like I said you probably dont want to alter yours this much but im sure there is something you could make so you can get a drill to fit on there. theres always a way. with a dremel, bench grinder, duct tape, epoxy, and threading dies you can make anything fit on there.

I recall seeing in a catalog a kit sold by RCBS for their case trimmer so you can use a power drill on it. I think it was in the Midsouth Shooters catalog. That way you don't have to mod your trimmer, just replace some parts.

Here you go. Midway also sells it.

First post. Remodeled my old Craftsman bench last year. I had reloaded off of it for years. Put this new wood top on with shelves. No current pictures, but currently it has a 16 year old 550 and a fairly current Rockchucker mounted on it.

That's a nice bench, GLG20. Prettier wood than my kitchen cabinets! Plenty of shelves and a good work area.

Nice work on the bench. Is it sturdy?

Also, you state that your location is green country Oklahoma. I presume that is eastern OK? NE or SE? I'm currently in western OK but one day hope to retire and make it back to home, which is tick country in SE OK. HAHA

I'm still new to this, so my collection isn't near as impressive. It gets me by though. Nice pictures guys (and gals). I love this thread for ideas...

Added some shelves, brought some lead and brass in from the corner of the garage, organized my stash of primers, and junked the place up again.

I just finished construction of my new bench. Went with the NRMA plans. Seems like a pretty sturdy design.

Thanks, Dean and rondog. I have way more hours than I care to admit into it. Its all cabinet grade plywood. I'll post more pics when it's moved and the presses are all set up.

Obviously well worth it.
I think I'd still enjoy reloading if I had to do it in a coal pit, but it's nice to be comfortable and have things the way you want it. The work you put into your bench will be icing on the cake.
