    Made this case trimmer to trim .38 Spl. / .357 Mag. / & .357 Maximum cases. D-2 hardened for file trimming. Hardened shims added for longest case .357 Max. Locate on 2 dowels. Used this setup till I finally got a Lyman trimmer, but this sure helped me a lot and was actually faster. Never bent a case mouth with new file used. Here is a pic of this caveman setup. Made one for .222 Rem. but forgot to relieve bottom of block when heat treated in oven. Can still relieve but now have no mill, just the tools...LOL. : )
