    At the end of a pretty simple trade, I ended up with a shock-proof, water-resistant, vibration-enhanced hull trimmer thingey that can eat any length of any basewad profile paper or plastic in 12 or 10ga and produce the length I want that day ... and different tomorrow.

    Thanks <i>hdskip</i>

    After a fashion, Lyman had, with replaceable arbors in different gauges, but you were still pretty-much limited to a ΒΌ" cut and long shells were unstable.

    I had been using this that I ripped from the Parker? forum:

    and it "worked" but at the cost of several workarounds, not the least of which was need for more bandaids.

    I came up with this idea and sent it to <i>hdskip</i> (he is on this board, regularly, but I don't know if he has ever named himself, so I can't) ... one dingus/per gauge, either hand-held or chucked into a vice.

    and you saw how much he improved the utilitarian design.

    As a bonus, he involved some kids in the design and fabrication, ... paying it forward, as you are supposed to do.
