Home made annealing

Does anyone have a method to anneal several casing at once. I saw a video from this board on doing one at a time w/ a blow torch, but if you've got 250 casing that need annealing, that takes too much time.

I'm wondering if anyone has figured out a way to do multiple cases at once?

There are companies like Ken Light and others that make automated annealing machines that you can buy and set up at home. Not cheap but if you do ALOT of cases all the time then it might be worth looking into.

New to the market and probably going to be one of the best.

I finally broke down and got the Bench Source unit.

The Ken Light unit is around $400 for one caliber and $50
For each additional caliber wheel. Each wheel free if shipped with the unit.
Unit is not adjustable for "dwell" time in flames.

The Ballistic Edge Mfg (higher end) unit is $495. And you can specify up to 3 calibers pet wheel. "Dwell" time not adjustable I believe...

The Bench Source unit is $520 shipped, adjustable "dwell" time and takes calibers up to 50 BMG.

"Cobra Commander" will be happier I'm not slaving over a hot flame for such a long time anymore.
