Update from PMA Tools — Special Deals, New Products

Our friends Pat and Matt at PMA tools sent us this recent “summer update”. Since it contains product news and special offers, we decided to share it with our Daily Bulletin Readers:

NEWS from PMA Tools

From Pat & Matt — We’d like to update you on a few new items that have been or will be added to our line up of tools. We also have one item that is available while supplies last. We’ll start there.

PMA Neck TurnersBlem Neck-Turners only $79.95
We have six (yep, only 6) blemished Model A Neck Turning Tools available while they last. These tools are completely functional, but boy are they ugly. For one reason or another the anodizing just didn’t take on these six tools. We wouldn’t feel right charging full price for them, so we’ve discounted them to $79.95. They can be found on our PMA home page under SPECIALs (lower left) or in the “New” section (lower center).

New 35° Cutter Option
We have added a third option of cutter angle to our neck turning tool offerings. We are now manufacturing a 35-degree cutter for use with WSM cartridges and cartridges based on the 284. We are expecting this cutter to eventually replace the 40° option. Not that there is anything wrong with using a 40° cutter for these cases, after all like Fred used to say “clearance is clearance”. The should actually make set-up easier, particularly when adjusting the turner for a “clean up” cut. The 35° carbide cutter (for Model A tools) costs $12.95

Pre-Set Neck Turners Coming Soon
Our new pre-set neck turning tool (tentatively called the Model B Tool) will be available in a matter of weeks. These neck turners will be available with your choice of cutter angle (30, 35 or 40), your choice of stainless steel mandrel (22, 6mm, 6.5mm, 7mm or 30cal) and preset to your choice of cut thickness. We will guarantee the thickness to .001”. The price of this tool is $45.95 complete (mandrel installed), all you have to do is adjust the mandrel location. This tool is a great, economical choice for shooters who like to have 2, 3, or even 4 tools set to different depths to get the thickness down to size. It’s also a great choice for any one who wants uniform case necks for a factory or non-tight neck custom chamber. This neck turning tool comes pre-set, but can be adjusted if need be — it’s just not nearly as easy to adjust as our Model A.

Taking Orders Now for Carbide Mandrels
We have an update on our carbide neck turning mandrel situation. They will be available before summer’s end in our standard sizes (22, 6mm, 6.5mm, 7mm and 30cal) and will be priced at $45.95. If you would like, you can pre-order carbide mandrels by emailing us (support@pmatool.com) and letting us know which size you need. We will place you on the list and you will receive an email as soon as they are available. Last, but not least, we are expanding our stainless steel mandrel offerings to include 17, 20 and 338 calibers as standard options.
