    Powered case trimmer considered

    I`m thinking of coming out of the dark ages and getting a powered case trimmer, looking at the WFT from Little Crow. My old Forester works fine but i`m looking at doing large batches of 223 and even with a drill the forester isn`t fast, the giraud trimmer is nice but to pricey. Any comments or other considerations from the collective minds here.

    I'm considering one of these:

    But i have some reservations about the accuracy of the depth stop on my drill press.
    Of course, a Lee cutter and pilot in the drill press, hold the case with a gloved hand, and let the pilot stop
    against the table of the drill press works pretty quickly, too.

    I just bought a Little Crow, and I trimmed about 5-600 .223 cases in an hour. I can't believe I lived without it! I have a couple blisters on my hand, but who cares. It is the best trimmer I have ever used. I am ordering one in .308 as well.

    I`ve never trimmed my 38 special brass, mind you i don`t shoot it much anymore. As long as my cases are uniform in length and i can crimp consistently i haven`t worried as it`s a 357 as well, don`t shoot much 357 mag.

    I just ordere a Giraud trimmer in .223 with the spares to also trim .308.

    Nicest person i have ever dealt with on the phone.

    Expensive but I just did 700 .223 by hand and never again.
