Wow at the lengths some will go to (Totalloser)... I followed your link and love the setup. Alas, I don't load enough to justify a nice setup. I'm satisfied with my lee hand trimmer on a drill. Don't get me wrong, I would like something better but I don't have the money to drop on it. I'd rather spend that money on powder and projectiles.

CTS Power Trimmer

Apologies for it taking me so long to reply to this thread about my trimmer.

It is made by cts-engineering and you can reach him at ctstrimmer@yahoo.com.

I am not affiliated in any way and never met the gentlemen in person but I have spoken with him many times on the phone about the trimmer and some headspace gauges I got from him that is also top notch. There are a lot of companies that could benefit from this companies customer service, it to was excellent.

I am not here to knock anyone else's product because they all are good but what you must know is they all serve a different purpose. Right now I have a WFT, Possom, Wilson, and Lee Trimmers and they are all very good products. I needed something easier on the hands and with a new bench I just recently finished building I left space for a Giraud. But I struggled with the price of it, then found this product online and reached out for pricing and I knew right away it was for me. Professional grade materials at the right price. So far I have trimmed 223, 308 and 300blk out on it and I must say it is the first time I have had a smile on my face the entire session of trimming especially with over 2000 223 cases trimmed at a single sitting.

I will be finishing up the review with pictures on my website today http://www.dayattherange.com

Stop by my website and leave comments there to let me know what you think of this trimmer.

You ordered 3 of the drill bit versions or the motorized version?

I just completed a review of the motorized trimmer, this is the cats meow and is now my favorite reloading tool

Ordered the gen2 with 2 caliber support as well as a case prep tool that does chamfer/debur/primer pockets. Jim at cts has been great communicating with. This is by far the least enjoyable part of reloading, really looking forward to changing the way this is done.

Maybe you can comment on my website about your experience with the tool once you get it. I had the same great communication when I was dealing with them through my purchase.
