Sorry, but I’m out. Afraid the solids will transfer too much heat to the gears.....
I'd be surprised if there was. There is nothing unique enough about that wheel design to have it's own patent. Your concern did cross my mind as well though.
Yes it would handle those. It would be similar to the large set annealeez wheels which will do those cases.
I use high temperature RTV Sealant from an auto parts store. First just try cleaning with acetone. RTV rated for 650 degrees hold up well and is equivalent to the original coating on the wheels.I think that your idea is a great one, but......I think that I would check out whether there is some product infringement of sorts just in case. I know that I have having difficulty with getting my cases to rotate on the wheels. I did read in one of the replies on the post where people are using "grip-tape" on their wheels, I'll have to try that.
Thanks for sharing. I will definitely be watching those gears during the stress point and using a digital thermometer to measure temp on the unit. The upper wheel is the one that will sink the most heat so I'll be curious to see how it reacts.Sorry, but I’m out. Afraid the solids will transfer too much heat to the gears.....
I considered casting a high temp ceramic into a mold. But I couldn't find what I was looking for exactly. So aluminum it is.So is there any other materials that are machinable but resist heat? Aluminum seem to cool pretty fast. Anyone done any research on this to see if something is feasible. I know it may cost a bunch but if it’s a by once cry once then it might be win. So far I haven’t even got my wheels warm but my maximum case run has been about 60 to 70 cases and I run mine at 30%. So flame time is up there a bit. Doing 7mm-08. Maybe this is a issue for just the really small cases or the WSSM’s or something to that effect but my wheels haven’t heated up doing this amount.
