    I tried to get a burner one going and while the electronics worked great the mechanical feeding was flaky. I have wondered about using a case collator dropping into something like this with a trapdoor to drop it into water.

    Rule 4. Identify your target beyond all doubt.

    I (well my brother actually) built an annealer that uses 2 propane? torches. I must get a video of it running. I wanted to build an induction annealer but it all seemed to hard (and expensive) but this has renewed my enthusiasm to have a go

    If it's not a first round hit you need to practice more

    Yea mate. Itís not too hard, the controller is the tricky bit. I used an arduino, happy to Share the source code if you wanna go that way. AliExpress has sharp prices and free shipping on most of the bits you need too so $ not too bad.
