My New Bench Source Annealer in Action

Just used my new Bench Source annealer for the first time. What a nice machine! Easy to set and adjust. Stops the case in the flames to rotate for an adjustable amount of time so you can get the temp just right. Two torches allows even flame to neck and shoulder. Highly adjustable torch holders. The results are awesome. All cases have an even heat line 360 degrees. I drop em on a damp dish towl and roll em away as they cool. Did 100 .338 Lapua in about 15 minutes. Two thumbs up for this machine.

LOL, these old cases are headed for their 9th time around and still look good.

Jeff

Broz, thanks for the pics. I saw a video not too long ago and it is a sweet machine. If I'm not mistaken I think it even drops the cases out the bottom once annealed.

Yes, the far on in the pic is ready to drop. The damp dish cloth I have under the machine will soften it's fall and start a quick cool down.

Well enjoy it, it is an awesome looking machine. From the brass pics it looks like the annealing was very consistent. I'll bet your local buddies will want you to do theirs.

Nathan, I don't remember exactly what the price was. But here is a link to them. Give them a call or shoot them an e-mail. They are great to work with and did exactly what they said they would do. Good people.

Re: My New Bench Source Annealer in Action

I got one a few months ago and that is exactly the same experience I have had.

The machine is a cinch to setup and use and does a beautiful consistent job.

I anneal 204 ruger cases, 7-300WSMs, 308s, 6BRs, .270s and 7Mags and the results are always the same and repeatable.

You tend to remember the cost of things you are dissatisfied with because it was not money well spent...its easy to forget the price on a machine like this.
