    finished the auto annealer today

    It now has a case feeder.

    Is the link to the album complete with videos and photos. The first video should answer the question, does the base of the case get too hot.

    Very nice setup. Personally, I think you're doing good on the heating. I have some FNM 7.5 ammo that still has the annealling visible on the case.(Hasn't been polished off). It looks very close to what you show in your vid. If you can pick it up that soon after heating and it isn't hot on your fingers, I'd say you're doing good.

    BTW, looks like a lot more engineering went into that than anything I could ever accomplish.

    So, what are you going to be selling them for, short of the case feeder?

    The base machine is a copy of a brassomatic, at least as close as I could get from a photo. The case feeding bit I came up with. I don’t plan on building any but for the do it your self types out there, I do have some of the CNC laser cut “saw blades” (the hard part) along with scale traces of the top plate with hole location, arms and drive wheel. I can send them anywhere in the US for $45 + $10.35 shipping

    Turn this into a sticky in either special projects, or swapping and selling?

    Hey jmorris since you are not going to build them I guess that means we all just send our brass to you for anealing Right? I only have 3000 308 Win casings. You should be able to knock those out no time flat. Probably should post your address here so we can all start shipping brass too you. Or am I????

    Really looks great!!!! Good Job!!!!

    Shipping would be very expensive but I'd do it. If you didn't add the case feeder part the machine is really a pretty simple build.

    I'm impressed.

    I've cleared out the neighbors on either side of my house so jmorris and Glen Fryxell can move right in.

    Just a thought..........
    How about using this same machine to heat treat boolits. Adjust flame, speed, etc and drop the boolits into a bucket of water. Hmmmmmmmmmm.....just a thought.
