The power trimmer is the best piece of reloading gear I have bought to date. Not only is the trimmer absolutely awesome, Doug seems to really care about his product and the customers that buy it.

The trimmer saves so much time in case prep and it is very consistent. A huge plus is that I don't end up with brass shavings everywhere.

I don't believe you.

Send it to me for proper evaluation

Trust me, when you get it you will wonder how you got by without it. I can easily trim 500 223 cases in 30 minutes.

Have had mine for several months and kick myself for not getting it sooner and the best part is I only live about 20-25 mins from him so I got a one on one hands on tutorial from the man behind the machine, and the Best part is it's American made and made extremely well, I have trimmed about 5K cases and is has not failed

I was wondering how hard it would be to add an extra pulley and "case" for primer pocket uniforming off the same motor?

Please do not modify this work of art.
BEEEP BEEEEP BEEEEEP ! This has been a reloaders public service announcement....Heed the loud beeps, really.
Don't brake something to fix something that was working fine before you had that silly thought.

I am not saying that I would modify it. I am asking why not design a new one that incorporates all aspects that require a spinning blade to trim. So case length, and primer pocket uniforming.

because that is not what it is designed to do. Doug set out to make the best case trimming tool known to man and he did just that.

It would seem fairly simple to mount a reamer and a PPU with rollers in back in that upper right corner area (with the white label) and extend the belt drive around those rollers

Basically a serpentine belt.

I have had my trimmer over 2 year now. Its the best trimmer, Hands Down. Last year I had a bad bearing in the cutter assembly. I called Doug, he told me to send it in and he would fix or replace it for free. He even gave me a credit for me shipping it to him and he also replace the plexi glass cover.

Awesome Product. Doug rocks. great guy.
wish all of America business operated like that.

I've had mine for almost 2 years. I have trimmed so many 223 cases at one sitting that I thought my thumbs & fore fingers where going to fall off. I just bought the cutting heads and adapters to trim my 308 & .204 Ruger brass. Great product & custmer services!

I must be the only one that uses mine in the upright position versus on it's side

I have one of his spotting scope stands as well- very well made. I have the trimmer, and can't wait to try it. A great guy!

I have a Giraud trimmer on the way. I have about 5000 .223 brass ready to trim. I trimmed about 2000 rounds with an old RCBS hand trimmer and a Lee trimmer that goes in a drill. Never again. Trimming is by far the single worst part of reloading to me. I think that is all gonna change real soon.
