auto case pro

I finally got to work on the automation of the cacepro to resize the rim of cases.


Reloading


I welded a little tab, onto the set collars that I used as a clutch off of the drive motor, to keep them located properly when they slip (different calibers take different torques).

Reloading



I also had a counter I purchased at a local surplus store I mounted so I know how many cases have been sized.


Reloading



I made a pass through the base plate out of box tubing and used the same basket that I use for my auto annealer to catch them.



Reloading




And the videos are here

You resize the rims of your cases?

Well done........shows a lot of expertise to put something like that together....wished I had your talent on mechanical things like this. I use to work in electronics but when it came to actually building something, I'm all thumbs!

It sizes the base of the case that the chamfer of the size die and shell holder don’t get, helps mostly with “glocked” or SMG brass being reused in match chambers. It also irons out any dings on the rim or extractor grove that an extractor or ejector my have left. If you use a case gauge, it fixes the ones that fail.

I wonder how much it work hardens the brass at the rim? I wonder if it even matters in that area? It would seem to me that setting a die (casepro plates) up to work the rim would prevent it from working on the case bulge area as effectively? Do the plates angle in some perhaps? I know it works, I am just curious.

Yes, they are tapered and angled. All they do is make sure thay are at factory spec.

I can't figure out how to get all the toothpaste out of the tube and this guy is building space age loading equipment. Boy, now I'm really depressed.

Wait a minute, I have store bought teeth... I don't use toothpaste. Nevermind.

Good job anyway, I'm jealous of people with talent. Your real name's not MacGyver, is it?

You need to take some of your "prototypes to market" they are awesome work.

Thanks for the kind words, if only there were a big enough group of shooting junkies there would be a market. Lots more gun guys than shooting guys, I guess.

My friend has his case pro setup with a casefeeder. It works well it seems. But he does have to pull the handle.
