    It would be for me too. His schedule is different than mine. Sure does work good, as well as the Ken Light my other buddy lets me use. That one is even hooked to a Dillon case feeder. You can always spin them in a deep well socket on a drill and drop them in a bucket of water. All depends on you need really.

    The Ken Light "BC-1000" is now handled by the designer, Brian Crawford, since Mr. Light passed away.
    He wrote a really informative article on the specifics of annealling. Good read. Answers the "to quench, or not to quench" question. A very small portion (maybe a few sentences?) of the article is annealer-specific to the BC-1000, but the vast majority is universal info.

    He speaks of judging the shine of the case and I will have to review that. While quenching is not needed, I can see if it is a home made set up there is a safety factor if the base is immersed in water while heating. No matter what mistakes one might make, it will prevent the case head from becoming too soft.

    I think you are right on home quenching. It is a good read and good info. I also believe that it is geared for his product. I wouldn't find it necessary to quench when using his annealer and don't. The heavy aluminum acts as a heat sink (the older one is heavier) and also keep the center of the disk full of water to help. It doesn't contact the brass it cools the heat sink.
