    Did a forum search on the subject and found some of the posts are up to 4 years old. I have been using the Sinclair NT1000 for almost 10 years. My creaky fingers are telling me it's time to move onto something a little faster. No complaints on the NT1000 just looking for something a little easier on the fingers. What are you using and how do you like it??

    I am using the K&M turner with Carbide internal cutter for the mandrel. It takes any donut out simultaneously. I like the Ergo "Fat" cutting tool handle that eases holding onto the mandrel/cutter. I use a Lee Case holder in drill for turning the brass onto the mandrel/cutter.

    I really like this tool but set up is tedious so ideally I would like a seperate body and mandrel set up for each situation.

    I also sort of liked the looks of the 21st Century set up but have no experience with it.

    I've got the Sinclair,K&M also couple Hart's. I like to make two cuts that way little easier on the hands. If I have lot to do I'll make first cut using a Forster case trimmer with outside neck turning attachment for the first cut then I'll do second with one of the 3 I have listed.

    After couple firing I have good collection Forster inside neck reamers I'll use one of those get rid of the inside donut. They custom make reamers for any size that you may need and Wilson does the same for their trimmer got few of those.

    Here is picture of the Hart

    I like/use K&M, easy to use, easy to adjust, very accurate and extremely well made. the pilot jack makes depth adjustment a snap and the power driver adaptor with lee shell holders makes it fast.
