@ButterBean ! I realized after we were talking about how we do it for fun that building a contraption for annealing is right up my alley for fun. I used to work in the brewing industry and make my own homebrew alot... So of course I have made all sorts of gadgets for that.

I think I just like getting into the weeds with my hobbies

this is the super simple setup I'm doing. And the beauty is a really easy to add modifications to your hearts desire. https://www.snipershide.com/shooting/threads/homemade-induction-annealer.6966638/

I'm putting one together. Using an old computer server case for the housing. Bought a used, 600W power supply for $35. Bought two, cheap induction boards, and two delay-relays, because I talked a friend into building one, too. He never did...so I used both, and wound up burning up both boards and both Delay-Relays, because the are NOT able to handle their "rated" power input. Patched them and re-soldered them a couple times, but did prove the concept, and actually annealed a .308 case, a .223 case, and a 50BMG case before giving up on the cheap components.
All in all, I'm in it for less than $100 so far. Been meaning to buy a better induction board to complete the project, but got involved in other things.
It will fit neatly under my bench when completed:

There's a lengthy thread on Accurateshooter on how to make yer own high end induction annealer. I ordered a Flexion Annie, 6 - 7 months ago. Starting to believe I'll never see it...
