    After a ton of reading, and realizing that i can't justify a Giuard trimmer (altho i want one bad) i purchased the PH Kwick Case Trimmer, adjusted the cutter for length, chucked it in the Sinclair power attachment, and fired up the drill press.

    I placed a tray of .223 on the drill press table, used two hands to feed the cases into the trimmer, and when done, dropped the cases down the hole in the press table to the waiting tray.

    Used the Sinclair to hold my Forster deburr tool and flew though inside and outside tasks in separate operations in good time.

    The operation wasn't bad on the hands, left the cases in fine shape, and provided me with a me an affordable solution to trimming my .223 cases.

    :) here's the quick description

    "The Kwick Case Trimmer is designed to trim cases either by hand or under power. The case trim length is set by the case indexing off of the datum of the case's shoulder in a similar manner to the way a case headspace gauge works. This eliminates the need for shellholders and pilots, speeds up the trimming process, and makes for a good field tool to keep in your range box. Trim length is adjustable. By inserting the Kwick Case Trimmer into a Sinclair Deburring Tool Holder you can trim under power.

    Careful...I got chastised for saying that on another forum...I'm being serious too...I was told I know very little about trimmers if I think you could ever compare the two...lol For the record, I agree with you. I love that trimmer. Like you said, swap out the trimmer for the debur/chamfer tool and clean up the cuts super quick and your on your way. A very worthy investment and a great way to save $300.

    I ordered the same from Sinclair along with the power adapter for the chamfer and deburring tools. I wouldn't mind a 3-way cutter assembly from the Giraud that I could chuck into my drill press and secure the frame to the table.
