    Man cave case prepper

    Have always wanted one but couldn't justify $300 for a Lyman. So after all of $100 spent on Ebay and left over bits from other projects this is my budget idea for a case prep centre. Works like a charm and heaps cheaper than buying one + there is always the added bonus of man cave relaxation time

    Awesome, have you got a link to where you bought the motors? Is that an added collet on the motor shaft or is it how it came?

    A small improvement would be to make the top slightly tilted, so that the swarf runs off.

    Would have to tilt the whole motor set up to as the flange bearings are tight on the couplings. Chose perspex for the ease of brushing the swarf off.

    I just used a 10amp one I had from something else possibly a old GPS charger. Pretty sure it's overkill for the motors used but works fine

    Awesome that project definitely earns a big thumbs up in the man cave respect department. Probably outlast the brought one anyway.
