    Indeed. It's a $10 item available about anywhere that sells automotive tools.
    I'd grab the one with the biggest magnet though.
    After stirring things in the pot, the steel have a tendency to "lock" together, so you're picking up several pieces at a time.

    Try to be nice to people, even the one's who don't deserve it.
    It will make you feel better.

    Don't dry wet tumbled brass in a pan on the top of a wood stove.
    Sometimes a live primer is still in the case. Scared the hell out of my chihuahua.
    Life is so much better with dogs!

    All the more reason to deprime before cleaning...

    Have you ever deprimed on an RCBS Rock-Chucker press and had the primers bounce off the bottom of the plate all over the room. It kinda defeats the purpose of the plastic catch cup that mounds to your press. Take a large diameter drinking straw (McDonalds works best for me...the thin ones don't hold against the walls of the groove). Cut it and insert it into the repriming groove of the ram making sure the top of the plastic straw is below the shell holder. It should be about 1/2"-3/4" shorter than the ram groove total length. When depriming, it adds some resistance to the walls and the primers will drop neatly into the depriming plastic catch cup.

    The only stupid question...is the unasked one.


    Not all who wander....are lost.

    If you reload with 800x and weigh every charge a pewter creamer makes a great container to dip your powder from. When you finish you can just pore any unused powder back into it's container. And it is heavy enough that it is hard to knock over. I almost melted it for boolits before I figured that out.
