That particular piece of equipment is a milling machine, I was using an ER32 collet to hold the brass, this is actually a very nice way to hold brass as you can get a set of them from 2mm-20mm for about $60 that will fit a wide variety of cases, you can also get just one for about $4.  They are used in a collet holder with either a Morse taper or a straight taper (the straight taper can be chucked in a regular drill).
I used the milling machine because it was what I had access to at the time, I now use a mini-lathe with the same collet, I hold the K&M tool in my hand and spin the brass in the lathe, it is much faster that way.

Quenching is generally used in hardening tool steel either with oil or water.  I know there are some who feel that brass needs to be quenched for annealing, but this is not the case.  The reason to anneal brass is to increase life and to homogenize the malleability of necks, when the necks all have the same degree of malleability you have very consistent release and hence similar velocities and decreased SD and smaller group size, after 3-4 firings the malleability of the necks starts to diverge in a given population of brass cases

With brass quenching doesn't harden the case, as brass gets harder when worked. The thought is if it cools faster the less likely you are to anneal the rest of the case.

I use Newlon Precision die blanks for both Bushing neck size and body (resizing dies), I use Wilson for seating dies.  This was a Bushing neck die, the reamer is a Pacific tools resizing reamer with a pilot bushing
