    Does anyone recommend the Bench Source Case Neck Annealing Machine? You can get one for under $600 at Brownells. I saw a video on YouTube which demonstrates the unit and it looks pretty slick. I'm on my third round with my current brass and I want to anneal before loading up again. I really don't want to spend $1000 on the AMP unit. Your thoughts please?

    I've had one for a year and a half. Very well made machine that does exactly what it says it does.

    Those are supposed to work well with automated case feeders and things like that but if you are not looking to do tens of thousands of rounds a month it might be worth getting one of the front load style. They are a couple hundred cheaper and a lot of people seem to like these.

    I plan on building my own that will look like a hybrid between these two and cost is under $200 for everything to build one yourself

    AMP. It's worth the extra cash.

    I have the aneeleez and love it. It's the only one I've owned or used so I little basis for comparison, but even as a beginner in this area I found it simple to set up and efficient to use.

    I replaced my annealeez with an AMP unit. For me the improvement has been significant and feel it was money well spent without any regrets. I would do it over again if given the option.

    I have no doubt the AMP is superior. I do very small batches so I didn’t want to shell out the big bucks.
