Default Forster 3-in-1 case mouth cutter

I just bought a Forster 3-in-1 case mouth cutter for .223 cases. It does a beautiful job and doesn't leave any burrs at all, but it looks like the inside chamfer is a bit long. Mine is cutting them to about .020-.025" from the case mouth. The outside edge is just broken by a minimum amount. Anybody else have one of these? How much chamfer does yours leave?

Adjust your inside/length trim blade. Not that I have one, but it looks like that's why it's adjustable.

The inside cutter is adjustable, but it's not recommended that you do so. I sent it to Forster and they did it for free. Works perfectly now. It does a beautiful job.

i have a forster 3 in 1 i dont use it much anymore but IMHO they are the best trimmers next to the guirad.
i had to adjust the blades on mine and its not hard it just takes a while to get it just right...a tiny adjustment makes a big change.

All I had was the time to let them mess with it.
