    Annealing brass (homebrew)

    ok lads.

    anyone made there own annealing wheel thing.

    I have a few more days off work with the recovery after the op so was thinking of making an annealing machine.

    I have the burner that i used with the drill and a socket but was wanting to try and make something a bit more tecky like. more for the fun of it than the end result.

    cheers

    bob.

    photos and a list of what you used as well as where you got the bits from etc.

    Yes they may be shooting ok but what do you class as ok


    a consitantly annealed brass compared to the last one and first one will always react better to a more randomly annealed one
