    I made my own. Drill a hole in a block of wood for case to sit in, then a smaller hole all the way through, bigger than the primer but smaller than the case, obviously. Submerge cases, then place them in the hole while keeping them full of water. Find a drill bit or a dowel that is a snug fit in the neck. Insert into neck and tap it with a hammer. Hydraulic pressure forces the primer out.

    I used to have one farkin piece of crap, like a tong tool put the case in squeeze the handle and a chisel like piece of steel was supposed to be driven at 45 degrees into the primer and then lever it out. Worked about half the time and munted the standing anvil when it didnt.
    An old guy told me he drilled one flash hole wider so a fine head punch would fit. All my snider and martini cases were done that way and lasted till the brass crapped out. I have bertram stuff now.
    It may be worth a try.

    Forgot that one, drilling a larger hole! Was thinking of converting to shotgun primers, only got 5 cases I can use, getting some Bertram Brass, but cannot have it posted from Aussies, anything to do with firearms Auspost will not handle!
