    I'm getting my Dillon 1200 case trimmer set up, and was wondering what type of vacuum you guys are attaching to the unit to vacuum off the metal shavings? I want something inexpensive, but hopefully as quiet as possible.

    if you want low noise and own your own place build a box out side agianst you shop wall put a switched electrical outlet in it that the switch is inside close to your press cut a hole through the wall and run the hose through it insulate the box on the side top and shop side but not the back put a screen on the back for venting and there you have it.

    1 gallon shop vac

    I use a one gallon shop vac with two lengths of hose and hang the motor unit outside the window. Close the window as much as possible, and use whatever to block the draft.
