Automated brass sorter by weight

Recommended Posts

I haven’t had much time to play with this, built the electronics part, did the programming and threw together the mechanical parts months ago.

 

It’s still a long way from being a finished product but it’s also one of those projects that can get lost do to “life getting in the way” if I don’t see some sort of progress.

 

The idea is to begin the sort by a 10 grain differential with those dropping into one of 10 bins, then take all from a single bin and change the resolution to 1 grain differential, then take all from a single bin and change to .1 grain resolution.

 

So in the end you can have brass sorted to the tenth of a grain without having to touch a single case.

 

Proof of concept and hopefully enough inspiration to finish it out when it cools off outside.

It would be interesting to see if that also has the side effect of sorting by headstamp / lot

That would be pretty awesome.

I have to say its pretty cool. Now, because i am ignorant on the subject, why would you need to sort brass by weight?

It’s a must for loading precision rifle rounds

Maybe separating by caliber --- 9 vs 40 vs 45 vs 38 vs etc. ?

Yes, for precision rifle stuff.  

 

I built this one years ago that sorts by caliber much faster than the above machine could.
