Powered trimmer

Finally got this Christmas gift mounted and I am enjoying this! I had the manual RCBS Trim Pro but always wanted the "motorized" version. Saves a lot of Ibuprofen at my age.

Same here, except I use a drill press. It's a bit more stable than a regular drill and more quiet!

Congrats! on your new trimmer. I have got the same RCBS power trimmer (older model that uses shell plates). It is several years old and still going strong. No telling how many cases I have trimmed on it. It is leaps and bounds ahead of manually trimming cases.

RCBS Trim Pro

I have the exact same power trimmer you have. I also use the RCBS 3 way cutter, it cuts the case to size, chamfers the inside and removes the burrs from the outside all in one operation. Just one small drawback about 3 way cutter. If ever you have to adjust the cutter head, it is a little difficult. After the cutter is adjusted, the adjustment seems to last forever.
After trimming thousands of cases with this trimmer, a weak link surfaced. The rubber coupling tubing from the motor output shaft to the cutter shaft failed. I replaced it with a 1.5" of #10 Aeroquip steel braided line. It has a rubber inside, with braided steel over the rubber and a cloth fiber outside. Works just great. Anyway, happy trimming..........

I had a RCBS powered trimmer, I now use the manual version again and for the high volume stuff the Dillon RT 1200 powered unit for my press. I can easily do 1200 rounds an hour on it.

I have a powered RCBS. After watching that video I would like to see the cost of the Giraud trimmer. Thanks for the vid Steve.

Try a Dillon RT1500 with a carbide die, sizes and trims all in one operation and can be used on any std press. I run one of these on a s1050 progressive. Its more fun than lizard boots on a Friday night!

Nice people to deal with.
