Need a little help. Forster makes two neck turners, one is for use on their case trimmer and the other is a hand held unit. Which are you looking at?

Hey asa

I use the Forster hand held turner. It is one of 2 that I have experience with, the other is the K & M hand held turner. The Forster is simpler, cheaper and has a wider blade




The K & M has more bells and whistles like a pilot depth adjuster, a dial gauge and a cutting mandrel. However it is more expensive, especially with all the attachements, and the cutting blade is not as wide.

Recently I discovered that the Forster reamers will also fit in the hand turner


and this will allow you to ream the inside at the same time as you turn the outside


This will get rid of do-nuts but you have to set your brass up by turning the outside on new cases to allow .003" to .004" neck clearance. Then when you once fire the case the inside diameter will be .003" to .004". Later when the do-nuts develop you can ream the inside to get rid of the do-nuts and lightly clean up the outside at the same time.

Okay. I have a Forster HOT 100 and have no complaint. Don't really like the plastic case holder device but that's a personal thing, it works well enough.

It is best to limit cuts to maybe 4 thousanths on a single pass with any such turner. Neck fit should be really snug on the manderal but not tight. Use a case lube on the mandrel when turning. Don't cut into the shoulder, the Forster has a nice bevel on the carbide cutter to reduce the likelyhood of damaging the shoulder junction.
