From the instructions: "When looking at the end of the tool where cartridge cases are inserted, it should turn counterclockwise to properly cut. Turning in the opposite direction will damage the carbide blade irreparably. "

That's forward on a drill, not reverse.

Sure you know this, but if you've driven it in the wrong direction, there are 2 other cutting edges on the same blade.

I also have used the Tri-way in an old motor. I first used a delrin coupler from dumpstercnc.com, but after a while (and several thousand rounds) the coupler started to warp and the vibrations were not good.

I ended up purchasing a steel coupler of the same type, but was substantially more expensive (like $50-60), but have not had any problem with warpage with the coupler.

There's a link in post #8: http://www.dumpstercnc.com/ then click the "couplers" link.

I think he wanted to know where he bought....steel coupler of the same type, but was substantially more expensive (like $50-60)

I would like to know too!

For the steel coupler, I need to go back and see. I cannot seem to find it easily from email receipts -- it may have come from MSCdirect.com but I cannot find a 1/2" and 3/8" coupler -- so let me take a look at the coupler this evening.
