I'm thinking about purchasing one of these or the comparable model. Currently doing my deburring and chamfering with a drill. Trimming my cases with an LE wilson trimmer with a drill also. Figure I'd use the case trimmer on this for high production rounds like 223 and 308 and the Wilson for the accuracy rounds. Thoughts?

I like mine pretty well also. Eventually gonna upgrade to a giraud I believe but am happy with the fa. Only reason I’d like to upgrade is I want something to do it all at once rather than having three seperate steps.

I’ve had mine for a couple years and I like it but it’s so loud, if your not watching it you can debur/chamfer too much and for trimming, I don’t like the trimmers that rely on the shoulder to trim case length. I have setup two forester trimmers with 3-1 heads for two cartridges and I leave them set up for them only. I can trim quietly, accurately and I think quicker than I could with the Frankford Arsenal platinum...... it’s a good machine, it does the job, I’d say it’s probably the best prep machines but this machine is on my radar.......https://www.hendersonprecision.com/shop. They’re pricy but they are nice!

    Lyman case trimmer kicks ass.... it's not as good as giraud but for around 100 bucks it's amazing.
