Basically I channel my spent primers into a a jar,whose lid I secured under my bench,(I twist the jar on an off as it fills up.) Once the jar is full I seal jar with a similar lid,and place the jar into the brass recycle bucket.

I try to use a fluid funnel,and a piece of PVC flex tubing to gavity drop the spent primer through my bench into the catch jar.

There are several similar videos on UTube


'Steel cuts flesh / steel cuts bone / steel does not cut steel.'

Become steel or get cut.

I wouldn't use PVC as this plastic builds up a static electric charge easily and can cause a strong enough charge to cause an ignition source. I had a filter system on my solvent tank years ago that was made of PVC, it was in place for a few days and running solvent through the PVC caused a spark that would easily jump 1/8 inch gap- looked like a spark plug going off. I noticed it because I could hear the sharp "CRACK" of the spark (the filter was out of sight behind the tank so you couldn't see the spark). This spark would go off every minute or so.

I used a clear rubber type 3/4 in hose. So far it works for the ones that go in the press. Some just bounce out.
