Maybe call the manufacturer and purchase individual "replacement" parts?I really want the bench source, but the price means I have to pay a luxury tax when it comes in, here this luxury item tax is 110%.
I simply cannot pay that.
P.S. Australia, where taxes are taxed!
I have the Australian made version of that style now.I purchased the Annealeez unit about 8 months ago. Just yesterday I annealed 100 cases. I timed the process at just under12 minutes. With about 5 minutes of setup that included connecting the propane bottle and adjusting the flame and cycle rate. My average rate was 7 seconds per case. Unless you want to pay for the top of the line and go with the AMP, then I don't think you can go wrong with this unit. Loading up the hopper to 50 plus cases is easy, and you can load more as the cases drop from the flame to the provided catch tray. Watch the video on the website and you will see just how easy it is.
The one I saw is only 7:16 in length. Doesn't matter - his surface is a flammable U-haul bumper-pad blanket. I guess the acetone is just the guarantee that if shizzle goes south, it does so on afterburner.is that a can of acetone on the same tabletop as his annealer? pause the video at 7:17
I don't own one but I think there is some good info in this video.
The shims he made to hold the flame height and his fix for longer cases could be useful information for you.
I understand. Would you consider putting out the extra cash and purchasing the AMP? If you had another reloading mate, then you could share the cost of one machine. I'm really happy with what I have but tempted to go out and buy the AMP so I can be everyone's friend.I have the Australian made version of that style now.
The set-up time between cases is what I am trying to make faster.
I go from 222 cases, 22-250, 6.5x47, ‘06based cases, belted mag cases of differing lengths, RUM cases right up to Lapua/416 Rigby cases.
This AGS is simply remove or drop in inserts and raise or lower the torch and move it in or out.
I’m already $450AUD into the annealer I have, it works, but is too slow for the volume I do.
correct, my mistake, looks like it's at about 3:15 or so into itThe one I saw is only 7:16 in length. Doesn't matter - his surface is a flammable U-haul bumper-pad blanket. I guess the acetone is just the guarantee that if shizzle goes south, it does so on afterburner.
I like mine. I don't know, if you have to anneal 100's of pieces at one time, if it is the best choice. In my case, it is a great choice at a good price since I do 100-200 pieces (rifle) whenever I have accummulated them.I bought the EP Innovations the other day. A few friends have it and super easy to setup with excellent results and only $280 delivered. Looking forward to getting it. Good luck to the OP with your new tool.
G'day MM.G’day all,
Looking at upgrading my annealer, the current one I have is a bit slow for the quantity I am now annealing. Have looked at a few, the Bench Source is what I wanted, but found this AGS unit.
Is anyone here using one?
The only difference I can see is the heating plate on this unit takes inserts of different diameters for larger or smaller cartridges.
It may be faster than my setup now, not sure though.
