    I've been through the planning stage a couple of times and the controller is definitely where I stumble. Either option would be appreciated please.

    Thanks for the feedback. Looks like there are enough interested people to justify getting some pre-assembled units out of China. I've made some good progress on it - sending out for quote today.

    I've kept it super simple using common through hole components to keep cost and assembly complexity low. Parts are available from Jaycar for those wanting to assemble their own.

    Interested in any feedback on what features may be missing or needed by some - but be quick

    This is how she looks now:

    Well, the real things have arrived.

    For those that expressed interest in blank PCBs or built units, send me a PM.

    Thanks for the follow up PM's. It's cool that quite a few members are keen to build one.

    For anyone else interested, this is how the costs worked out for a small PCB order:

    1. Blank PCB - $17 - buy all the other parts yourself (reset chip and MOSFET’s not available from Jaycar.)
    2. Blank PCB plus the reset chip and 2x MOSFETs - $22 - buy the other parts yourself from Jaycar
    3. Built unit - $60 (Still needs the Arduino board)
    4. Arduino Uno board - $7 (from China)

    I've also put a couple of doc's together here:
    Cartridge Case Annealer - Parts wiring and use.pdf
    Cartridge Case Annealer - Electronic Controller Assembly Guide.pdf

    Very awesome job Mark !
    I would like to add that you shouldnt power it up without the coil installed for the case to fit through or the ZVS board gets very angry.
    As I have a spare ZVS board I will get one of the made up modules from you.

    For any budding coil makers I have a mod that helps protect the coil from damage and helps hold it straight, and aligns the case inside the coil.
    It is a ceramic cup / lens for tig welding

    You can pick up a pair for around $10 at NZIG this size fits a .308 case well

    @ANTSMAN @Klhari @rupert @burtonator

    Did any of you proceed with an annealer ? Did you manage to get a 48V power supply?
    I am having a hell of a wait for my one, and I have a mate wanting me to put one together for him.
    If anyone got one straight away I would be keen to know where from?
