    I'm interestd in turning the necks on my brass. However, I'm not sure which model and brand is the easiest and best to use. I see where Forester has a hand held unit for around $35 plus the pilot. Can anyone make some recommendations?

    There are many to choose from
    Thew ones I have and like are the,

    K&M
    Forster
    Hart

    K&M is probably one of the best.

    Second the K & M. Have the forester and only tried it once, pain in the ___.

    Ken Markles number is (717) 292-3175, get the matching expanding mandrel.

    I have a Forster for raught neck turning and a Sinclair ( old one ) for finish cutting

    K & M is very nice but because I have several clone of the Sinclair ( home made for my private use ) and set by caliber and neck thickness I stay with Sincalir , new Sinclair is more esay to set uo

    good shooting

    I just purchased the K&M this year,..and found it very easy to use thus far. Ken will also ship it the day you order it,..and you just send him payment when it arrives, or on the same day. Great guy to deal with.

    Can you guys that are recommending the K & M neck turner tell me if you feel K & M's Expandiron is a necessity. Thanks for the advice.

    I use the K&M Expander mandrel and think it in a nessety. The Expander pushes the hi spots out to the outside of the neck then the cutter cuts more consistent neck thickness.
