PMA Neck Turning Tool Model A 30 degree
The PMA Neck Turning Tool is the best neck turner available today. You know why you need or want to neck turn, but with so many different models on the market, which do you choose? The factors determining your choice of neck turning tools essentially boils down to three key demands; ease and repeatability of adjustment, comfort of use and cut finish. This tool absolutely satisfies these demands.
Our neck turning tool does not use a course or fine drive screw to move the cutter towards or away from the mandrel. We don’t utilize an unnecessary micrometer or dial indicator. Nor do we rotate the mandrel on an eccentric which changes the center of the cut and has inconsistent adjustment. Our Model A neck turning tool simply adjusts by moving the mandrel toward or away from the stationary cutter with VERY minimal backlash. The Model A utilizes a super-fine 80TPI drive screw giving you .0002” adjustment between each mark, the marks have ample space between them allowing you to make adjustments as fine as .0001”. Tool does not include mandrel.

This is my fourth cutter, I find it simpler to have a cutter for each cartridge I reload. The cutter is simple to adjust, the depth cut adjustment is calibrated and easy to adjust for different neck wall thicknesses. Using a vertical drill and the PMA Case holders trimming necks is quick and easy. Yes, actually not a pain.
This PMA unit has greatly reduced the fine lines compared to other companies neck cutters.
The best tool on the market in my opinion.
For me, this tool does the best, most consistent results, and I have tried 3 others from competitors. Wide cutter appears to be the key.
I have a lot of neck turning equipment, I turn for .22cal, 6mm, 6.5mm, 7mm, .30cal and .33cal. This is the easiest and most accurate adjusting tool I have ever used. If I had one critique and its a small one, I would love for there to be something on the back of the tool I can chuck up in my lathe. I like to have my lathe turn the cases for me. I will make something to fit a tool holder for it but other than that, it is perfect.
This is the third one I purchased(20, 30, and 40 degree cutters) With their driver reasonable single pass cuts are quite feasible. The micrometer adjustment is accurate and the instructions are clear, concise, and helpful. Moreover, if neck turning with different brass manufacturers the adjustment to just even out the case necks is simple. In my case some brass needs to be at 0.132 and another needs to be at 0.146 to just even the necks.
Just getting into Benchrest and loading the PPC. I found the neck turner intuitive, easy to use, and exactly accurate. Thanks-
This tool fixes all the problem I have had with other tools. The idea to move the case and not the blade is phenomenal. I micrometer is superb. The attention to to detail is great, instructions are simple and clear, with all the practical tips needed. Technical and customer support is second to none. I highly recommend this tool.
