    Im not sure which spinner they were refering to, but the only one im aware of is Vern Juenke's.
    You can contact him at:

    THE ACCURACY DEN
    Vern S. Juenke
    25 Bitterbrush Rd., Reno, NV 89523; (702) 345-0225

    It essentially spins the case or bullet around its vertical axis, and measures the imbalance of the bullet or case being measured in deviation units.
    Hold onto your wallet though.... they are steep. $840 last I heard.
    I know its repeatable, the same bullet will measure the same number of deviations every time so it is measuring something. Variations in case wall thickness or bullet jacket thickness, combined with how out of round the object being measured is....but im not sure its ever been proven that the bullets that tested best always shoot the best. On the other hand, some of the top guys in the 1K BR game sort bullets on this machine, and some spin brass as well.
    Who knows!

    OOPS!!
    different kind of "spinner".
    Never heard of a concentricy gauge refered to as a spinner... I guess im behind the times. The one I was refering to is something else, completly different. Its usually used to sort brass or bullets by variation in case wall, or jacket wall thickness for loading.
    Concentricy gauge is something else entirely...
    The neco is great. Theres also one made by sinclair, and rcbs. I love my Neco.
