    I have a Forster trimer and the adapter for for it. What kind of screw gun or screwdriver stck are you all using for yours? I would like a plug in one though.

    That's just it. I don't want to use my main one. I wanted to buy a cheaper plug in one that I could dedicate to that use. I guess didn't make that clear.

    Gotcha...I would look at investing in a harbor freight plug in special...Should be very cheap. My only reservation is not having variable speed control. It does not take much to trim a case and I wouldn't want to hold onto a case with the possibility of it being grabbed and losing some skin!

    I have not shopped drills in a very long time, but I would imagine that you could get a very nice variable speed drill that will last forever trimming cases for less than $50

    I went to O'Reilly Auto Parts and bought an inexpensive cordless screw driver for less than $20. Works great. Can do it all with it. Trim cases with power adapt. for lathe, neck turn using sinclair case holder, uniform primer pockets with Redding PP Uniformer (comes with power tool adapter). The 'driver' has a 1/4" hex drive so it fits all the commonly available tools for power case processing.

    No need for any more expensive tool and the single speed is just right for all these operations.

    I can even use it to turn my deep socket while annealing .308 cases.
