Shoot! Threw the baby out with the bathwater.

I finally got around to organizing my reloading bench the other day, and unless they turn up somewhere, I guess I threw away all my Lee trimmers!

I needed one tonight and it appears they are all gone! I did find a powder measure I didn't know I had, so I guess that's a good thing.

So!!! Your confirming that a bird in the hand (powder measure) is worth two in the bush (several trimmers in the garbage)

Did you throw away the cutter or the case length gauges?

Both, I was using the regular cutter chucked in a drill, but I still have a cutter with the wooden ball attached. (It was in a different box since I wasn't using it...)

I feel kinda silly...

If left unattended long enough case trimmers evolve into powder measures.

This is a great example and even more evidence as to why I should not have to 'clean up' my part of the basement. Right now everything I have is there, somewhere. If I organized it, who knows where anything would be?

(I'm right, right?)

Yep your right. I keep everything straight (LOL) and then there is the "TO BE FOUND AT A LATTER DATE" box.
