Re: Annealing Cases

Buffalobob,
Thanks for the great video and pre- and post-annealing pictures. They really took all the guess work out of the process. I made up a tool with a 12 mm socket and a bolt I had lying around and annealed 90 cases in less than 15 minutes.

    I also use the templestik method (i think mine is the 600-650 stick--i'm at work now so i'll have to check it wehn i get home). But i never could get it to stick on the outside of the neck so i just scraped a tiny bit off the case into the mouth, and wear a jewelers magnifier so i can see as closely as possible when the chalk melts. Then it gets cooled and then i take a brush to the neck to ensure any residue is gone from the neck. I haven't noticed even a discoloration inside the neck where the chalk was, so i'm assuming it's not harming the brass.

    I always have purchased them in welding supply houses. You may have to order,
    doesn't seem to be a high demand item.

    Thanks for the how-to post and Video's BB. I feel so smug and superior to my buddies who dont even know what anealing is or what it gains you. I was in this class not too long ago. All I knew was fire was used to soften up the brass some. How much, how long, what it actually did etc were a complete mystery. Now I cant wait to rub it in.
    Im guessing my garage (with my loading bench) will be the new hang out for a while untill your demo goes viral. hahaha
    Thanks again and the metalurgist explination was also a helpfull post. I forgot who wrote it, but with that explination and the anealing demo of BB's Im definately ''smug-er and superior-er'' than before HAHAHAHAHA
    I love it when I learn something new that turns out to be so simple!
