Just learning the ropes, finally finished setting up the press & testing the powder measure.


Pic showing entire bench, beginning the setup. Ignore the ashtray. I set it there as I was only using the drill. No smoking at the reloading bench!


What would have been my bench, had I moved past the dummy round stage before I moved.

Sure, clutter is easy, but I love an organized bench. (I'm somewhat OCD) Looks great.

That IS organized. I don;t think I've ever seen a bench so well-kept. I really like the wire baskets on the wall keeping your powder and such off the becnh. I think I can even see those baskets under the bench too. Very nice!

kevinakaq, that is the sort of bench I will someday build. I'm not an extravagant guy, but I like to be organized, and what you've got there is pretty close to ideal.

this is an old building that i built some 23 years ago from lumber from a tear down (had been used as simple storage until six months ago)...as to the parts to build the bench with shelves, bench and all, i probably have around 200 bucks in lumber. A little ingenuity and attention to detail will take you a long way. The actual bench for the two press units is 2x10x8 that i cut in half and clear coated. The work bench is 2x4 frame (some scrap) with a 3/8" chip board shelf and 3/4 particle board top that is doubled up. Again a clear coat on top. Neat and practical beats out fancy any day of the week in my book. To fancy and you're afraid to work on it! And thanks for the comments!!! Nice to share it with others like myself...

kevinakaq,
Hope you don’t mind, but I copied your picture to show my trainees just how organized it can be to reload. If you don‘t object I will give you full credit.

Couldn't possibly mind. Flattered in fact. You do realize though it only enables my ocd? Lol, oh well keeps me out of trouble at least.

Reloading is something i dreamed of doing as a child but we were to poor for me to justify the equipment, let alone the continual cost of components. Doing it now after dreaming about it so much as a kid (was away from my guns for a while - overseas, nyc, etc) means it must be done right. And i've been able to read/find so much helpful information on this forum, without much need to ever post a question. Sometimes I had to dig, but it was always to be found. Just wanted to say thanks to all for helping me get my rounds and my environment right. Any compliments is a tribute to all of the good information found at THR.

Kev

Kevin, great bench! Thanks for the photos. My wife passed through the room and stopped exclaiming "Wow!" I don't reload yet but your bench is definitely an inspiration.

Magnum Shooter - that is a VERY organized setup. Thanks for the heads up. Especially like the way you have your turrets setup along the top. Looks like a place for everything and everything.... Quite the setup indeed.

Like the lockbox ksimons. Something i'm missing and looking for. A place to lockup my bulk powder/primer supply (only keep one pound each kind and 1000 primers each at work area) and ammo.

I hear you 41wheelgun on running out of space. Everytime i start running out of space i start looking around thinking "hmmm, kind i get another shelf in this area?" Running out of wall space.
