Power to neck turn

Hi Everyone,
I've got a couple of thousand of Federal GMM 308 brass and I want to neck turn them. I've got a Forster outside neck turner, doing it by hand is not an option takes too long to do a good job. I would like to use a drill press to neck turn.

What do you use to power neck turn cases?

i have the forster neck turner mounted on the trimmer. I removed the manual hand turner and attached a drill directly onto the trimmer. and zip zip zip.

I'm not sure what you mean. Can you show me a picture of how you did that? right now I'm using a drill press and it's not working very well

Ijust figured out my problem

I have the wrong mandrel for my neck turner. Mine is much too short, that's why I'm having such a difficult time.

You need to get a Lee trim gauge/holder (whatever they call it).
Get it in whatever cal you need and you can chuck it up in a drill. Thats how I do all mine.

Thanks reloader28,
I will do the same, but I have to wait till I get the correct mandrel from Sinclair. Here's what it looks like.
