I still like the round holder mentioned in the thread done by Joel Pendergraft.

Should someone want to contact Joel Pendergraft, i saw his contact info somewhere in my surfing, so for ease of those reading this thread it is: joelpend@bellsouth (add .net) or at least it was at some point
The one major thing the K&M does over the Sinclair is it also removes the doughnut. It also makes fine adjustments very well. Is it the last word? I doubt it. Can the Sinclair neck tools work well? Yes they can with some rework (by the way I like the older ones best).

Re: Best Neck Turning Tool

Doughnuts have been headed off for decades, by turning into the shoulder and fireforming. So reaming is a solution to a problem already taken care of with any normal turn.

Also, turning is not to reduce eccentricity, but to produce a set thickness. For this operation you absolutely cannot bind brass, but float it around a proper fitted mandrel.
Again, fireforming finishes this brass prep(completes the action for desired result).

Aldon, you won't find a 'better' turning SYSTEM than Sinclair offers in NT-4xxx
Sinclair Search : Reloading Equipment : Case Preparation : Neck Turning : Neck Turning Tools -
Their mandrel system would also apply to reduce the runout problems you've encountered, even without turning.

Re: Best Neck Turning Tool

I read a post that mentioned that the Mandrel Die by K&M would not fit the Co-Ax as well.

I am about ready to pull the trigger on the Sinclair but alas.....they seem to have a market with no stock to sell

Re: Best Neck Turning Tool

So does the K&M Mandrel Die fit the Forster Co-Ax?

I like the round add on holder that is available from Joel to hold the turner.....

I like the idea of the Turning Mandrel also having the reamer.

And they appear to be available.

So I would pull the trigger tonight on the K&M if the Mandrel dies will work on Co-Ax press.

Re: Best Neck Turning Tool

I don't currently own a Forster Co-Ax, used to but sold it. I see no reason why the mandrel die won't work on a Co-Ax. It takes a die ring just like any other die and can be adjusted for height just like any other die. I use mine on a Lee Classic Cast or Redding Ultramag.

Re: Best Neck Turning Tool

I use the
"Lee Zip Trim Case Trimmer Universal 3 Jaw Chuck Case Holder"




found here; Lee Zip Trim Case Trimmer Universal 3 Jaw Chuck Case Holder - MidwayUSA

It works very well for me, even for 338LM.
