Saw this "solid oak" table with drawers and thought it would make a good table for reloading. $129 on sale right now:

that does not look stable at all

I built one of these. You can make them any size you want. I loaded up the bottom shelf with brass and bullets for weight.

works great with my 550B

I got these plans in an email today. It looks like it would be easy to change thing some to accommodate a press.

How in the world could that be any good? It from Harbor Freight!!!!!


Seriously, it looks like a very good set up for the money, if need be a couple of 2 x 4 supports could easily be added in the future, but I doubt that they would be needed.

I think I got my reloading table from Harbor Freight years ago. It's steel with a wood top and a couple of steel drawers. I used cement screws to screw it to a cement basement floor so it's sturdy and firmly in place.

That might work if you x brace the rear, and sides, and bolt to the wall:)

Reloading Bench, Harbor Freight tools, maybe $20.00 on sale.

Added plywood top and bolts, probably $10.00

2X4 brace required after I squashed the cheap stamp metal brace, free.

And you can pick it up and move it.

Good little bench, just like one I use at times. Has a little flex in it but doesn't bother me.

just check the dimensions....

these economy work benches tend to be narrow... around 18"

Assuming you're going to mount the press on the long side, you may be better off with a wider foot print to oppose the rotational force you'll put on the press when sizing.

You could brace that bench or get something else..

I suspect the shipping on that "solid oak" bench is going to run you a few pennies.

I'll bet you could pick it up at most stores. I don't mind the idea of attaching it to the wall. Looks like the drawers would be convenient for tool storage.

He didn't say, but maybe he's got a Barrett 50 cal:neener:

2x2 legs, or what ever they are, don't look they would take much abuse. Some 1/8"x 3/4" steel strap, crossed in the back would shurly tighten things up, if needed.

You can build a very sturdy bench for much less than $129.
