    I don't have any over cooked cases and I do KNOW how to read the flame and if you don't know anybody anneals pistol cases you have not been around the block in world of black powder or high pressure smokeless loads straight walled cases in lever rifles, pistols with harden cases.

    gloob 380 that would be tuff to one anneal but 20 sec spinning with heat that shell I'd it call Kingsford. If heck bent on getting life out of my cases I'd lead dip case mouths, need a little meat to work with there.

    You would be correct about my knowledge of brass cased black powder loads and harden cases. However, I have loaded for many pistol caliber carbine rifles for decades and have yet to anneal a case to be reloaded. If you are talking about using a case as a jacket for a projectile that is another matter entirely.

    Like these 9mm to 40JHP bullets

    I like the idea of the machines. Quick and consistent. Sounds like the same idea of the Chargemaster 1500s. The job can also be performed manually, with excellent results but some people just prefer automation.

    Ironic part is that I automate factories for a living but prefer to anneal my cases one at a time :) . And I anneal my match brass after each firing.

    I do prefer the Chrgemaster to throwing, dumping, and trickling for high volume.

    You know there are ceramic heaters that look a lot like the chamfing tool used in your video GLOOB. At first sight I thought you had already built one. The ceramic heaters are expensive little buggers though.

    I built my second fail last night, just spins too fast. I had a printer that didn't work, I guess it was all the built up ink inside I found. :rolleyes: Three motors in there and one of them is a cool little stepper type motor, cool gears and stuff too.

    I'm still stuck on the water thing, just call it a mission although one more fail and its an adapter and a socket in a cordless drill for me.

    Edit: I might be onto a winner this time, this one's turning slow.
