Thanks for your thoughts.
If your Brass got hot enough to melt the wheel, has your Brass been compromised?
Not that Brass is cheap & easy to come by these days, is it actually worth saving?
How many rounds & what cartridge are you at risk of losing?
You might be able to get the Brass really cold and try to flake the material off.
This was the first time I annealed 7.62x39, but I have annealed before. I was using the same visual endpoint for the 7.62x39 that I employ for .308 or .223. Back to the annealer, I was using the short wheels, but the distance between the neck and the wheels is still not that far. I had flame on the brass for roughly 6 seconds, and I specifically attempted to direct the flame away from the wheels. Unfortunately the wheels were melting enough to leave material on the brass.
@FROGO207 - the best solution is to use thinner wheels made from aluminum such they won’t melt, and won’t be out in the way of the flame.
Hello, saw your post about replacement aluminum wheels for issue with nylon wheels melting. Could you help me get in touch with your local smith? Thanks
@jumpinjimmie - PM sent
It will take a little patience to calibrate the timing to be the settings you are looking for.
Also, I got a Tape & Float pan for the brass, it works far better than the small pan that comes with it. GOOD LUCK, I love mine…
