This is the Case Prep Machine that I made
sometime back in the late 1970s.
I made this Case Prep Machine about 15 years
before RCBS ever got the idea. It may not look quite as fancy as the RCBS machine, but it works real well. I never intended
to sell these machines, and back then I never considered getting a patent on anything either.
When you're just making one machine, it's easier to use materials like stainless steel (instead of moulded
plastic parts). I also used 2 high-torque gear reduction motors for the chamfering cutters and a small high speed motor for the
primer pocket cleaning tool. My machine runs on one 12 volt DC power supply, and it's controlled with a rotary switch.
I only made one machine, and it's not for sale. It was easy enough to build with commonly available
printer parts. I still use my old Case Prep Machine all the time. However, now that the RCBS unit is available, if you're time
is worth anything, it's a good idea to pick up an RCBS Case Prep Machine. You'll enjoy reloading a whole lot more.
