    Homemade case annealer

    Decided to build my self a case annealer. Here is my progress so far. Waiting on a couple more parts in the mail. And then go pick up some aluminum angle. Only have the feed wheel, feed ramp, and feed hopper left to finish.

    That looks great! Some day Iíll either bring myself to build one or just do salt bath annealing

    Looks great! I went the "MDF box" route with mine. I made 3 cake pan wheels and two feed wheels and I can anneal anything from .300BLK to .300WM. I see you have two speed readout panels...I did originally as well but I went to an induction proximity sensor to control the feed wheel so I only have one "speed" to adjust--the dwell time in the flame. Basically it automatically feeds a case any time there isn't one waiting to drop into the cake pan wheel. Here's a pic of my setup.

    I have a proximity sensor wired up to the second speed controller.

    Gotcha...is it not installed yet or is it capable of sensing through the plastic case? I just have mine run at full speed whenever the sensor is calling for a case to be fed. I really like the look of your project box though--is it something you purchased or did you make it? It gives it a very "commercially produced" look.

    I purchased the case it's aluminum. The sensor is wired up but not installed yet. I wanted to be able to adjust the speed of the feed wheel just in case.
