What is a Hand Held case Belling tool?

Doing some CL. looking and found a guy that will sell a 38/357 Die set, some bullets, caliper tool, bunch of brasses with a bottle of case lube.

I know what all that is but then he has written Hand Held case belling tool? What is this. No pic. I would probably know what it was if I could see a pic. Doing google has not turned up anything.

All for 50 bucks....

You sure you're not getting a Lyman 310 ("tong") set of reloading tools?

The 310 is what a lot of us started with used a long time ago... (and then actually again today
at the range with my 38-55 in a High Wall -- re-using the same 10 cases w/ blackpowder/cast
bullets over & over again after rinsing/drying them out.)

Holy cow, They are spendy.. Just for the Pliers thing is like 30.00 bucks. think this answers another question I had. I have dies that look like they would fit this all ready.

I've belled cases for lead bullets by lightly tapping the shoulder of an old case in to the mouth, but to me that doesn't rise to the level of even a hand made "tool".

Maybe he means a chamfering tool?

Was'nt there a tool for belling the case mouth included as part of the kit for straight wall pistol cases in the Lee ' Whack a Mole' tools?
