Wilson micrometer, consistent, square case mouths, easy to use. Have never looked back.

I have the Wilson its a pain in the *****
This is what we call "think outside the box"!! If this works as great as on the videos then it's wonderful. It's money back guarantee anyway so I think I'll be ordering one very soon. Since this trimmer does not use a "overall trim length" then I imagine this trimmer relies on shoulder to the end of neck measurement? That would implies a case only stretches at the neck area.

I hate trimming and turning necks but I do it cause we have to. It is what it is So that being why not use the fastest and most accurate.

many years ago I bought a used Wilson, and completely rebuilt it. The cutter was a little on the dull side and ground wrong for brass. Had a friend resharpen it and change the relief on the cutter. Made a 100% difference. Later on I added my own micrometer head to the end where the screw backstop is. But always found it to be kinda hard to hang onto, so I made my own stand out of some 1/4" aluminum scrape metal I found at the junk yard. Another big jump. Later on I made a larger bracket to hold it and a couple other tools out of the left over aluminum from the first buy. Two years later I see one with a micrometer head in the Sinclair catalog! Had a good laugh over it. The Wilson cutter (and also Sinclair's) is ground to cut steel, and will work OK. The resharpened cutter cuts brass like a hot knife going thru butter, and leaves very little burr to remove.

A Wilson trim tool is very easy to rebuild, and the worst part is the cutter. So don't be afraid to buy one off Ebay next to nothing.
