Tempilaq melting around the neck is a great indicator of neck temp, but it does not indicate the temp of the rest of the case... Any crystallography studies for this design? Only asking because I am considering a purchase soon.
This is part of the intial flame set up regardless of the annealer. By applying the heat precisely and for a 'short' period of time, the base of the case is not overheated.

You will have the ability to test with tempilac to ensure it satisfies your needs when you purchase the unit :-)

Re: Ballistic Edge Triple Torch Model 350 Annealer Review

I'm new to anealing brass. I work with steal and aliminum a lot, though. I know steal heated and quenched, dropped into water, will harden.

I know brass is different. Does quenching in water make it softer?

Instead of the temp wax or what ever. Would a digital infared laser thermometer be sufficient for determining brass neck temp? Then you could check whatever portion of the case you are concerned about.

Digital thermometers are more available, now, and their prices have become more acceptible for most of us.

sorry, not a metallugist but it would seem quenching doesn't cause brass to harden. once heated, it stays soft whether air or water cooled.

The problem with an external thermometer is the flame used to heat the necks. you would simply be measuring the vastly hotter flame.

The temp paint/sticks are a simple and elegant solution to monitoring these temps.

Cost effective too.
