I'm thinking of making the box out of plywood and I noticed the front of this unit has a slight angle or slope.  Anybody know how much it slopes back?  Also does anyone have a link to a motor they're using?

If you check the video, it literally links to the motor. It links to every individual part required...

I was looking for a motor in the U.S. like he used but only found the one in China. I was hoping someone had a link to something similar here.  Anywho I was able to find everything else.

***I just remembered that my son left a stepper motor somewhere from an engineering project but I think it's got a 6mm shaft and rated at 1000 rpm, does anyone think that might work?

I'm gonna watch the vid and then see if one of my spare plastic milk crates will work, maybe a little creative fabrication.

Gives me a box to start with, anybody see how that might work or be a no-go.

The case I used in the video is only $35 bucks. Steel and painted already

My thing is to use materials I already have around the house. I got plywood,  I need to find the motor my son left behind to see if it will work, I have some old power supply's laying around maybe they'll  work.  I think my wife may have a cake pan she'll donate to the cause. Maybe my dad has some angled stock I can use,  I'll scrounge around and see what I can use and not buy and spend less.

Got it.  Just ordered the motor, controller, and prop adapter.  Looks like I might have this for around $30 when the dust settles.  

I will make the rest out of stuff I already have.  I am going to try it with 1 gallon metal tomato cans that I have laying around.  I have sheet metal and a brake for the enclosure if I decide to get that fancy with it.  

I just got my refund from my Fluxeon and this looks like what I am going to go with.  Thanks

Start with just the face plate and adjust the angle to see what works.  I am going to use a metal face with an adjustable kick stand.  I won't package mine so neatly since it is all low voltage.

Another good idea!  Doesnt matter if the the motor sticks out the back but I have a question.  If you want to install another motor to drive a case feeder can you go off the same power source with another speed control.  I know its getting away from the original model shown but doesn't seem like much more of an expense.  Failing using another motor some other videos have given me ideas for a case feeder actuated by the cake pan, more brain storming to do.  You can really get carried away with this stuff.

if using another motor, then it's a total gamble but I'm sure it would be fine... I think the key is to make sure it falls in the 25 to 35 rpm range? and the propshaft adapter needs to match that of the motor shaft.. if the motor shaft is 8mm, then the adapter needs to match... if motor shaft is 6mm, then the adapter neds to match and so on. ... the motor I'm using is 12volt and 1amp, but I boosted my amp up to 2amp as i'm sure the digital display sucks up some of this amp i'm guessing the the 2amp power works great so far... so I would say as long as the motor is 12v, and the power supply is 12v, personally id make sure the power supply is approx. .5 to 1amp above the rating of the motor IF USING A DIGITAL DISPLAY

Good video which brings up a question.  Does the u-bolt get hot enough to where it gets too hot where you attach it to the box or is the box pretty heat resistant?

Looks like a simpler version of Skip's annealer. I need to repair mine since it was knocked off the bench a while ago.

Yes good video. I seriously don't mind manually feeding mine as it only takes approx 5seconds per and it doesn't take long at all to do a batch of brass and you still kinda feed the hopper anyway. Plus I feel like I have more control over the process this way

I'm getting away from using a case feeder to keep it simple. Made the box today with particle board I had laying around.  Not pretty but should work.  Wish I had a table saw, not all my cuts were as precise as I wanted.  It's probably a little bigger than the store bought box but it'll do.  Also found a round U bolt, straightened it out and later I'll bend some corners into it. I also used a piece of flashing the roofers left behind for the feeder.  Thinner than angled aluminum but should work.  The cookie tin is bigger, 6 1/2 inches so I may need to run it a little faster.  

I plan on using a round diamond blade on my drill press to cut the tin.  I'll just rotate the tin against the blade to make the cut.   If nothing else it will be good practice and ill use the baking pan instead

Great video. I would be all over this if I didnt already have a Bench Source. I love the bench source BUT hate manually feeding brass. If you come up with a hopper, please let us know. Then my Bench Source will be on Ebay. ;)

I've finally gotten around to ordering what I need to finish my annealer.  I was just going to do the manual loading but may upgrade later to the feeder.  In looking around to see what I could use for the feeder wheel I came up with this idea, hole saw and 2x4.

I used my hole saw for cutting doors for door knobs and cut a nice 2 inch diameter wheel out of a 2x4.  I punched out the wheel, ran a bolt through it and tightened it with a nut, then used my drill press to sand it smooth.  Now I just need to cut the slot for the case to fall into and attach the prop adapter for the motor.

I'll post pictures later, I want to finish first to make sure it works.

PHOTOBUCKET I've been trying to edit and add my pictures but either my computer is too slow or Photobucket is Photof****it!  I wish you could add pictures like on Ebay, lots easier.

Anywho, I finished my annealer.  Did a practice run on some scrap cases and it worked really well, I just need to get some Tempilac to set the speed right.  I went off script from the OPs video but his instructions really helped a lot.  Its not pretty but it works.  Aside from the cake pan and internals, the box was made from some scrap I had laying around.  I put in a case feeder so I can upgrade later to another motor and speed controller.  For now I can load the hopper and with a flick of my finger rotate the feeder and drop the next case onto the slide.  

I was going to cut another notch for .308 but since I shoot more .223 I can just forego the feeder since I'll do small batches of .308 and not hundreds like .223.

I'll try to post the pictures from another computer, my iPad wouldn't let me either, couldn't get the picture to link.  Thanks for looking (well reading since there're no pictures).
