In my last post, I featured the Little Crow Gunworks “World’s Finest Trimmer”. Well, I’ve done a lot of trimming, so now it’s time to finish the brass prep on all of that brass! This time, I thought I would feature some thing just a little different: a hand brass prep tool that is unique, the “Precision Prep Tool” from Little Crow Gunworks. Check it out:
I’ll admit, I didn’t know how this tool worked until I tried it out, and it’s pretty amazing how something so simple can make such a big impact on a chore like brass prep. Here’s an overview of the equipment and parts shown in the video:
Here we see, from left moving clockwise:
- The Precision Prep Tool
- Hex Adapter for case prep tools
- Deburring/Chamfering tools for the Precision Prep Tool
As shown in the video, I used the Hex Adapter with the primer pocket reamer mounted to my Dewalt drill driver. This is a GREAT setup, and it makes fast work of military crimp removal!
So, for this military .308 mega-brass-prep session, the process I’m using is as follows:
- Trim with the WFT (World’s Finest Trimmer).
- Ream primer pocket with primer pocket reamer, hex adapter, drill.
- Chamfer inside and outside of case mouths with Precision Prep Tool.
I’ve tried a lot of brass prep tools, and this is one smooth setup. I think the Precision Prep Tool is a good option for case prep chores, especially if you want to trim on the go, or sitting in your recliner watching TV. And for such a simple tool, the Hex Adapter is super-useful!
Anyone else out there try the Precision Prep Tool or Hex Adapter? Please leave a comment summarizing your experiences!
