Paul Workman is on a distinguished road

Just got back from Forster. Picked up some case prep tools for 45-70 cases that will work in my MCS case lathe:

#4 Colet (45-70, 90, 100, 110, 120) This allows me to secure each case precisely (with regard to centerline) in about 2 seconds.

Case trimmer (45 cal)

Neck wall thickness uniformer and .452" pilot for same

Contrary to what I was led to believe, Forster does not make a 3-way cutter for 45 cal cases, let alone a cutter that can be chucked up in my head stock.

So, I'll have to chuck the Forster case trimmer tool into my head stock and adjust the tail stock for precise dept of cut(s) and then chuck up the dual purpose inside/outside (chamfer/deburring) tool and prep the case trimming in 3 steps instead of ONE. But, I'm not going to be loading 45-70 cased in the same volume one might do before a prairie dog trip. It's only a minor inconvenience to handle a limited number of cases twice each to prep each case... (RCBS says: 3-way cutter for 45+ calibers?? Look for an announcement come June time frame!)
