Agree 100%

Also think this thread should be a "Sticky" for this part of THR.

As new folks get into reloading, this would be a great thread for them to browse through and see the myriad of options they have when it comes to setting up their reloading area.

Think I'll pitch my case to the moderators.

Here is my little bench, not too much room but its extremely stable and works for me. I can also wheel it out of the room when I have guests comming. Its got casters on one side and fits through doors.

My Bench

This thread has inspired me to finally build a decent bench. Thanks for all the great ideas! I used plans for a basic workbench from a link in an earlier thread. (sorry for the crappy cell phone pic)



+1 on the sticky vote! I'm sure I'm not the only one who improved their man-space after reading this thread!

I guess I better put an updated photo here since it's "going sticky"

I've added a couple more goodies, but this is pretty current. I think the pegboard (white) really helps me as much as anything...good way to store stuff and great light reflection.

I recently got a single stage set up and have started doing some bottle-neck reloading. I like it all.

This is a great thread!

Bob

Here's mine, just finished building it a few days ago. Combo work/archery/reloading bench. Still need tumbler/scale/etc but I'm working on it.

hotwheelz,
Mr. decon got it right...I was fortunate to "steal" a complete set of Handloader Magazine (the last issue in the purchased collection even matched up with the first issue I had purchased...destiny...and only $50.00 too!!)

Seeing this stuff on-line is great. I don't reload on a major scale but enjoy reloading as much as anyone.

THe Dove,
Welcome! It's never a matter of quantity or size of the bench...it's about participating in the hobby and enjoying it while you participate.

I've been reloading for a while in an extra bedroom but decided to move out to my shop. I built a 10x12 room in the back corner and finished it up today (just in time to start stockpiling for cowboy season!).

This room will serve a lot of rolls including leather/Kydex work, amature gun smithing etc...

This thread has been an excellent resource!

Fortunately I live a few minutes from the Kraftmade Factory distribution center where they have a surplus sale every Saturday. Scored all of the cabinets you see (which are all solid oak & Maple with plywood sides and solid 3/4" Maple self closing drawers) for $225. I love that place..























Incidentally, this is what I am most excited about. I can finally set my tumbler to run and get away from it. When I get back out to the shop in a few days my brass will be done.




Shop mascot's. I got these is about 1994 and they have been with me in every shop I've had since. This is about the only picture of Hillary I can tolerate looking at

I just finished building this bench over the past weekend. I've got the rest of the gadgets are now hung on the peg board. I didn't need a huge bench because I have a older style steel office cabinet that I keep the components and finished loads in. I like to keep my bench neat without alot of clutter. This will also second as a hand gun and long gun cleaning bench. It's easy to remove the scale and presses. This won't let me add a pic, so here's a link

I just got my "official" bench set up over Xmas. Much better than stealing table space..

Is that one of the benches from "SAMSCLUB" ?? I have been looking at them for the last few months and thinking they look solid and I could find a use or 2 for one. NIce set up you got there.
