Default Lymnan vs Rcbs case trimmer

Does anyone here know if the head for these two case trimmers are interchangable? I have a lyman and really not liking doing all the trim, chamfer and deburr and would like to get the RCBS 3way cutter that does all three. Any imput would be appreciated

I don't know but RCBS customer service guys are off the hook I bet they would know.

That 3 way head is expensive but pretty cool if it works.

Buying a rcbs 3 way cutter years ago was one of .the best moves i did.I only got it for .22 cal bullets since i load them the most.My 30 cal stuff i do by hand since i dont do as many.

And yes their customer service rocks.Last time i used them was atleast 10 years ago and both times i got a new part in a couple of days.one was a powder thrower cylinder thingy and the other i tried to make the trimmer shaft work with a drill but i messed it up and i called to find out how to buy a new one and told them what i did.couple days later a new shaft in the mail

I bought the Lyman and it is amazing, I love that you don't need any shell holders or anything, and it comes with cutting guides for 22 up to 45 cal. I plan on getting the power drill adapter next to make things go much faster.

I have the power drill attachment. Works okay...problem is you need to prop the drill motor up using wood, books...pretty much whatever you have laying around otherwise it just hangs there and will bend the attachment. The hot ticket would be to chuck the drill adaptor into a drill press and bolt the shell lock into the height adjustable table on the press.

Didn't Dillon make a powered case trimmer that uses your reloading press?
