    Yea, I'm wondering as well. Isn't it hard to work those presses when they are hanging on the wall like that?:D

    C'mon, give the guy a break. Okay? Well... maybe one more....

    I've known some lazy reloaders in my time, but never one that actually laid down to reload. :evil:

  5. Technology and i dont get along very well..ive been trying to figure out how to quote you for the last 15 minutes, i hope it works. We have an elevator and a post office, the only other thing i might want is a burger king, whoppers are over an hour away and its hard to keep up my girlish figure.

    I have only been loading less than a month but I have learned a TON from reading THR ( Thank You !! ) and other forum's and watching plus Youtube. I quickly learned that reloading information on youtube is subject to interpretation, but if you watch enough of them you can develop some good data, but I digress....

    My bench is a work in progress, I added 4' to my woodworking bench so I am cramped but it is still functional. I have made a number of adjustments, placements of items, etc. I even moved my press over a few inches to give me more workspace. My tumbler is underneath the bench along with 5 used military ammo boxes and a tool cabinet that houses a multitude of non loading related 'stuff' plus my cleaning apparatus for my guns.

    My excess powder will soon be inside the house, a laminate top will be added and cabinet doors added over the shelving. What you don't see is a large dust collector next to the bench. As you would expect it spews dust when started however I have a nice tool cover that I got from Lee Valley Tools that has magnets in the corners which helps hold it in place when I am not reloading. I am only loading .38 & .45 until .38 Super, .9mm & .380 dies become available.

    Thanks for all the help you guys have given us newbie's

    Now everything on Kansas's bench is going to fall off to the left.

    Thanks, it is, 2x6's on 10" centers, 1 1/2 plywood top, 3" wood screws and lag bolted to the concrete block. Should be there a while.... I still want to add a laminate top to the work surface to help with cleaning.

    Just moved, and finally got around to building an actual bench (in the old house I was just using some plywood mounted above a dresser in the bedroom). :)

    The bench was just under $50 in materials and took less than 2 hours to make. Wish I'd done a "proper" setup earlier :).

    Looks like a fine bench from here.

    You got it secured to the wall? What a difference that makes. Be ready to add shelving to both sides too :)

    Looks great!

    .....well other then the manuals being stashed in the bottom back :p

    Don't have it screwed to the wall yet. Likely will soon. I'd like to build a hutch style shelf setup to put on the back too. With the move and the to-do list as long as it is its just a matter of time and funds, but I had to get SOMETHING setup to keep shooting :).

    I'm also hoping to get a progressive when funds allow which is going to take a little more space. At that point I'll likely either build a bigger one or just do a 2nd one and stick it next to this one.

    Been reloading for only a couple years now. Work area and equipment are a work in progress.

    My God!! From what I've seen here, I don't know how any of you can reload with any assurance of safety. So organized!! So clean!! How can you work under those conditions?
    I'll bet you even keep your powder lined up in ascending order, right? Same with your bullets. . . Probably within each caliber, they are also in ascending order. {Sigh}
    Notice that you don't see no picture of MY reloading bench. [Hangs his head in shame.]
