I don't have the tri-way, but I do have their powered trimmer which uses the same cutter. I have been very pleased with it. Plus they are a good company to deal with. I have several other giraud products as well.

Like 4gun-drill, I use their powered trimmer. Ran 200 30-06 this morning for my bolt rifles.

I have the tri-way. I am using it for .223/5.56. I'm spinning it with an old 1/3 hp motor via a chuck attached to the output shaft.
Works great, and is a real time-saver. Trimmed, chamfered, and outside beveled all in one quick operation.
When I get a good rhythm going, it takes about 3 seconds per case.

What kind of chuck did you mount to the output shaft of the motor? I use the Tri-way, but in a drill with a hose clamp on the trigger, mounted in a vise.

I saved a couple chucks from old broken drills, just in case there might be a future use for them.

I have a Tri-Way trimmer for .223. I chuck it up in my cordless drill. Hold the drill in one hand, and brass in the other. I love it. And it will trim, deburr and chamfer a piece of brass in 3 seconds. It will literally turn hours of work into minutes. Keep it clean, and it's dead nuts on every time. If you're using a hand trimmer, like the Hornady cam lock trimmer like I have, then deburring and chamfering by hand, you will thank God you got the Giraud. I'm going to get one soon for 30-06.
If you get one, I recommend getting some rubber coated gloves to hold the brass with. Your hands will last a lot longer. I use these from Lowes.

I have a .223 and .308 triway, happy with both. I have mine mounted on a 1/2 hp fan motor.[IMG][/IMG]

I have a tri-way for 223 and like others have said it cuts time on brass prep way down. I use a drill press and spark plug pliers to hold the brass to get a better grip on it and keep my hands out of it.

Thanks!
Absolutely recommend the Tri-Way trimmer. I have several types of trimmers and the Tri-Way ranks at the top. Just follow the instructions and there should be no problems. Remember to run your drill motor in reverse.
