    Please share your interesting Forster Trimmer mods.

    I've returned to reloading recently and looking thru my reloading stuff collected over the years and discovered I have 2 Forster trimmer for some reason.

    A quick look on the internet shows there were many attachment for this device, some factory mad, and some home made or 3d printed.

    I was wondering if you guys with your inventive mind had any interesting mods for this device that you would like to share.

    Also found amongst my stuff I had a Vertical Style trimmer that uses Forster Trimmer collets, it's made of cast iron and had some kind of micrometer adjustment.

    That is a Micro-Precision combination trimmer and length gauge. Someone has added the quirky crank handle.
