    Giraud is what I use and I haven’t had any issues with it at all. Works great.

    I just ordered an Annealeez and received an email from the owner telling me my product just shipped. He did say that he is getting over a thousand emails a day and it almost sounded like he is building them by himself so it is either get on his email or build product for customers.

    My order shipped in three weeks for those who are curious.

    Update: After using the Annealeez a few times. I am very happy with it. You cant go wrong. Just make sure your propane hose is tight after you adjust the torch nozzle or you will get a pretty blue flame in places it shouldn't be.

    I use a sheet pan with about 1 inch of water, stand my brass in it, light the propane torch, turn the lights out, get the neck and shoulder area pink in the dark and tip them over. I just started reloading cats yesterday, 59 years ago. This method is what I use in making my match brass.

    Another vote for Annealeez here. I think he's a one man business and up to his neck with orders. I finally got my machine a couple months ago, and I love it. Works great. Well worth the extra cheese!
    What could possibly go wrong?

    what do you use?
    Basically the same as you, but I use a socket set deep-well socket and extension, to hold the case.
    Sometimes I hookup a drill to spin it.

    A candle. Hold neck shoulder low in flame. Sponge is wet with water. Rotate 180 degrees till the water sizzles. Done.

    The neck will be annealed & lower case body will be stress relieved.
    Less chance of a case head separation.

    Then use a bushing die to stop over working the necks.

    I use the cordless drill, short extension, cheap socket and burnzamatic torch. About 5-6 seconds and drop in a pan of water. Works out beautifully.
