Has anyone tried the Sinclair premium neck turner? I have 2 of the model 1000 neck turners and am thinking of upgrading to the premium turner. Any thoughts on this or should I look at other manafactrures neck turners?
Thanks,
Dennis

Look at the PMA neck turner, great adjustments.

I have one and adjustments of a tenth or two are very easy and consistent.

I have 4 of the K&M turners. Because they're reasonably priced, I have one for the 30BR, one for the 6mm Beggs, and two for the 6PPC. I set them and then leave them alone. You might also look at the 21st Century turner.

Not only that, but it has a built in resevoir whereby the cutting fluid gathers. What happens to the fluid with the others ?

Which ever one you get, I think carbide turning mandrels are the way to go.

I have one. Other than the 2/10ths adjustment vs the Pumpkin's 1/10th, I like it just as well.

I have had one of the Sinclair premium neck turning tools (NT4000) for a while and I do like it, it's easy to adjust, although not as fine in the adjustment as the Pumpkin or Stiller. It is also a good size which makes it easy to hold onto and because of the mass soaks up a bit of heat.
I own and use the Pumpkin, Stiller, Sinclair (NT-4000, NT-1000), K&M and a couple I made myself, they all cut as well as each other when used correctly but some are easier to adjust than others which is why some are set and left.
