    Creative Reloading Solutions Handy Trimmer

    The Handy Trimmer, what a great tool!







    Back at the start, when I started on this seasonal slug work six years ago, I wanted the BPI Spin-N-Trim. After three years of it not being in stock, I bought the Trim Dr. II. Boy, was that a mistake. BPI still lists the Spin-N-Trim it is still out of stock. I'm glad it stayed that way, I like nice tools, and the Handy Trimmer is that. For $17 more, you can buy the Handy Timmer.

    Hmmm interesting !

    I cut down a few hundred new 10 gauge each year to 2 7/8" . I made a wooden jig of sorts and cut them on the bandsaw . Not as smooth for sure but a lot quicker and they don't seem to hurt any of my 10 gauge loads be it slugs , buckshot or birdshot .

    My trimmer is really crude. I cut off pieces of 3/4" iron pipe then faced smooth in my lathe one every 1/4" from 2" to 3". Slip a hull in the appropriate length "trimmer" then slide a utility knife across. Works well enough but I agree there is nothing like a nicely made (and of course functional) tool.

    As soon as I saw that Handy Trimmer I was thinking maybe I should upgrade! And I just might do that. Christmas present to me... from me?
