    That is a sharp set up. It looks like the Taj Mahal compared to where I started.

    This is mine, It has everything I need but not everything I want. I had to get rid of two of my presses because they were so warn out they wouldn't make good ammo anymore. I tried to clean house and neaten up.

    I'm happy with what I have.

    I'm not trying to be an ass but just offering constructive criticism.
    Installing a couple of sheets of drywall would go a long way in producing a much better looking reloading area. Your total cost would have gone up by maybe $75.00 including a can of primer and a couple of hours worth of labor

    Hey, $75 is 1000 bullets. Certain choices have to be made at times. Sometimes aesthetics have to come in second. :)

    I see a Hornady LnL AP Progressive, Hornady Auto Charge, a Thumler Model B, and 6 cans of One Shot.
    Something tells me that an extra $75.00 wouldn't make the difference between buying regular food and eating KD for a week and if I had to I'd eat KD for a week and put the drywall up.:what:

    While it would have looked nicer, maybe he didn't want it or felt it was necessary. :)

    Simmer down boys ... It's in the works ... Money was tight due to ordering a PSA 5.56 upper for the AR I'm building :)

    Rest assured that drywall is in fact in the plans as money presents itself. I'm in no huge hurry ... I'll be reloading for years to come and the fact remains that the looks of the bench have no impact on the press' ability to turn out great rounds ;)

    Here's my idea of decorating;


    I don't need no damned interior decorator telling me my loading area is ugly. That safe is in my living room. No SWMBO to tell me any different. My whole house is a man cave,, "rustic" is what I call it, some may call it a mess!

    I still need to build a bigger area in the basement. I don't have 4 presses set up because of no room. I do have up and running from the earlier photos, the Dillon w/casefeeder, Hornady LNL AP w/casefeeder and bullter feeder, RCBS Pro 2000, MEC 9000GN, MEC 600Jr and Horandy LNL. I still need to set up another Hornady LNL, Hornady 366 12ga, RCBS rock chucker and Forester.... So many toys and not enought room!

    I have since added to the bench from when this photo was taken. Wish I had more room.

    Here is the last pictures I've taken off it which when I first set it up. I have 2 Lee Pro 1000 presses, 1 Lee Reloader Press and mostly load 45 Colt (Pyrodex or Goex), 45 ACP and 9mm. I load 12 ga by hand with old discontinued Lee Loader hand kit and also with Pyrodex or Goex.

    O.K. Huntinco I think you got us all beat. Would love to come and play. If I could have a setup like that it would be like I died and went to heaven. You and your friends have fun as life is to short not to.

    Finished my reloading/workbench. Pretty simple and very sturdy. I'll be spending a few hours reading through this thread to get ideas for shelves/storage.

    2x6 framework, 4x4 legs and 3/4" thick oak top.

    Ahhh, the simplicity and soothing darkness !

    The brass and extra powder storage is underneath, and in the closet behind me.

    The shelf to the right is simply for tools needed at the time, and loaded storage.

    I have the beauty of having a normal "room" to use, so I don't need to pack everything into one corner.
