I just got a Hornady case trimmer that seems to work well. I'm kind of burned out on the manual hand held deburring tool. Any ideas on a good deburfing tool to take the manual labor, ( as my name's not Manual) out of the picture?

Perhaps you need to re-think your tool selection?

There are cutters/tools that will trim and chamfer/deburr at the same time.

Examples.......

RCBS Trim Mate, will deburr, chamfer, remove crimps, uniform flash holes(with added tool), uniform primer pockets, and clean them at the same time. I love mine and wounder why I waited so long to buy it.

Cheapest drill press from Harbor Freight set on lowest speed + deburring tool holder/adaptor from MIdway + standard deburring tool = easy and fast way to deburr. Bonus: You can drill holes too!

I just picked up a Trim Mate on Sunday. Good stuff! I just wished it was geared a little faster.

Do you have a link for the Flash Hole tool? I didn't know they had one for the Trim Mate!

Hornady crimp remover , screws right into Trim mate.

Flash hole uniformer is a RCBS tool, comes with the Trim Mate IIRC.

Flash hole deburer, take handle off the RCBS hand tool and screw into Trim Mate.

One of those must be what you meant.

What's the pro's / con's of the Gracey trimmer vs. the Giraud? Other than being cheaper, is the Gracey basically the same thing?

I bought the small Sears bench top drill press primarily for brass prep. Yep, you can drill holes too.

The Giraud is the latest.

The Gracey is, "old school."

I use the Gracey because I bought them before there was a Giraud. Some have claimed/said that the Gracey motor is "under powered."

I don't know........mine are hooked up to a powder drill.

Note that I have two. I didn't want to mess with changing and/or making adjustments when I went from .308 Win to .223 rem.
