Got my new Bench Source annealer

Totally awesome machine. I annealed 350 6.5X47Lapua cases in 35 minutes.
You can dial the amount of time the case is annealled from 1.5 to 8 seconds. The case is on a spindel and spinning while annealing. Very well made machine. There is a video on you tube.

It's not cheap, but you can tell by the video it's not made cheap either...

What was the cost? I could not find pricing information on their web site.

Mine was $469.45 shipped to Montana with the twin torch set up. Torch heads not included but I got them at Home Depot for $9.95 each with a tank of gas. My machine will be here any day. I am really looking forward to its arrival.

You won't be disappointed. It is a HIGH Quality machine!
I cheated, my two step sons both reload, I paid half, they paid 1/4, but the machine is at my house. :-)

Re: Got my new Bench Source annealer

What do you let the brass drop into after it discharges the annealed case?

Re: Got my new Bench Source annealer

I put a square metal bowl under it. I thought about using a plastic one but they are pretty hot and I was afraid it would run it, so I went with metal.
It does have to have a flat face to fit right up againest the machine. I started off with a washrag on the table, but some of them would bounce and roll completely off the table. I did put a damp cloth in the bottom so it would hit softer. I checked all the necks, and didn't find any that had gotten dinged.

Re: Got my new Bench Source annealer

So you let yours cool naturally and not in water? I have been heating mine with a torch and tossing it into a pan full of cold water. Seems to be okay so far. No cracked necks yet, knock on wood!
