I might be wrong and usually am but I thought I saw $995 on the price. I guess I will have to stick with my annealer. Cant afford that.
The AMP web site's claim that the positioning of the case to with-in millimeters to achieve induction annealing consistency is interesting.
I currently have an Fluxeon Annie on order and hope to use it manually to avoid the extra $500+ for the Giraud auto feed machine and all the various additional parts I would need to anneal multiple cartridges. I figured with its timer good to 0.1 seconds, the Annie would be repeatable like the Giraud or other mechanical feed system for flame annealing. It sounds like I might need to make some simple jig to help position cases fairly consistently with the Annie.
Thanks for posting the information on the AMP. Even if I've already committed to a different path the information looks worth considering as I go forward.
I have a Giraud annealer. Like it very much. Giraud has been playing with the Annie for some time now. I am on the list to call if they ever get it working right and solve their supply problems.
Volume is where the Giraud comes into its own. Most of the annealers require you to handle each piece of brass individually. With the Giraud you just get the unit set up and stack all the brass in there and turn it on. You can watch it if you want or get set up for the next step while all your brass is annealed.
I know my settings now but what I do is paint 3 cases with templaq and watch them run through to check my settings. After that you are good to go.
It is so easy I have gone to 3 firings and anneal.
..................The Annealeze is pretty much a clone of the Giraud. Same principle, I call it the 'cattle chute' principle' where you herd the cattle (brass) into a squeeze chute and anneal one at a time. Annealeze is timed like the Giraud so you can record the swell of the case in the flame but unlike the Giraud, there is no pending induction annealing option. best part is, the Annealeze is HALF the price of the Giraud.
