    That can happen. Would you care to post more photos and details? Looks like a clean build using Dillon conversion parts.

    JMorris, Are you still selling the plates and plans? I would like to be able to try building this this year.

    Thanks!

    Yes, I am also completed basic machines (no case feed). If my PM box is full my email is posted in page 10 of this thread, post #196.

    OK. So after having the plate from JMorris for over a year I have finally started building my annealer. I wanted to add the "spinner" disc and I'm having an issue with the case walking to the edge of the spinner and then no longer spinning. Has anyone else had this issue? What did you do? If I tap the index plate back a tiny bit it works perfectly but then on occasion I have the indexing motor jam up on the main disc. I know the original design used 2 torches to accomplish even heating but I really wanted to do the spinner but it is proving troublesome.

    Thanks,

    Am I allowed to offer my annealer parts for sale in this thread?

    I have the plate/blade, motor, linkage arm, bushing and bearings, case spinner motor, two pulse width modulators, pilot assembly and tubing.

    Give it a shot, if the mods mess with your post, you could always put it in the swapin/sellin forum and post the link here.

    What a nice machine. The counter was a classy touch.

    Everything I've ever read on annealing a case notes to drop it into water immediately after heating so the heat does not move towards the head, and that's how I've always done it. Yours waits a few seconds for that. This work OK for you?

    Your only applying enough heat to anneal the neck and for a very short duration at that, so heat migration is not an issue.

    You can hold the case immediately after it is annealed.

    No need to water quench although it won't do any harm.

    I guess if you also wet tumble you get to dry twice.

    If you wet tumble and then anneal do you end up with any calcium build up inside the shell casing?

    Shake them out first, just left a bit damp. I've never noticed any calcium build up, I also only use rain water from the butt to tumble and rinse them.

    I have been told to use my RO/DI FILTER setup that I use for my fish tanks.

    Interesting thread. I just wish photobucket hadn't gone to ****. I am currently working on a drum feed to a rotating pie plate design that I have copied off of a few that I saw on youtube. I have the mechanicals figured out and the electronics. I am currently working on the the case feed and then I will work on the torch.
