Default RCBS 3 way trimmer on Hornady trimmer?

Anyone know if the RCBS 3 way trim/debur/chamfer tool fits on the Hornady Cam-Lock case trimmer? I'm tired off chamfering/deburring by hand and can't swing hundreds at the moment on an expensive one. Any other suggestions to help me out with trimming, deburring and chamfering simultaneously in one step without spending a small fortune?

I am using the RCBS three-way cutters on the Hornady Prep center, which probably has the same base as yours. Threads are the same, but the RCBS threaded stud is shorter than the Hornady threaded hole; I put abundant teflon tape on the stud top prevent it from overtightening (it can be a pain to remove the cutter if overtightened, but not impossible). If yours is manual then it shouldn't as much of a concern.

Yeah, mine is the basic hand trimmer. My only concern was the thread pitch. I removed the handle and connected it to a drill to speed things up. If I could stop hand chamfering/deburring that would be awesome. I hate that part. Thanks for the response.

It does speed things up once you have it set up. One word of advice, get a specific cutter for each caliber, it is too much of a hassle changing individual caliber parts (at least for me).
