STEP 1
Choose The Forster Products Case Trimmer that meets your caliber range.

Our Case Trimmer System begins with three quality-manufactured and time-tested miniature lathes that trim most calibers.


STEP 2
Choose the Case Trimmer Collet and Pilot based on your specific case.

  • Collets

    Collets

    Our range of eight Brown and Sharpe-style Collets is one of the secrets to precise and repeatable case trimming. All Collets may be purchased individually. Several common sizes may be ordered in kit form, along with a selection of Pilots, with the original and Classic Case Trimmers.
  • Pilots for Trimmers & Case Inspectors

    Pilots for Trimmers & Case Inspectors

    The Pilot functions as a mandrel that guides the cutter for precise case trimming. We offer 35 different Pilot sizes.

STEP 3
Add any or all of our six specialized case conditioning accessories to meet your needs

After trimming your cases to length, you can properly prepare them for priming and bullet seating. Our system easily expands to perform a variety of important case preparation functions. These accessories are fully functional with Original, Classic or Power Case Trimmers.

Installation is easy. Depending on the accessory, just slide it into the pilot hole or over the Cutter Shaft, and secure with a set screw adjustment.
