My Reloading Bench is located in my 1st floor Laundry room so it is somewhat cramped but still very functional. I actually have 3 or 4 other presses that are not currently mounted/in use. The cabinets store all of my dies and assorted reloading paraphernalia and some brass too. Casting/Sizing and Tumbling is done in the garage.

As you can see I prefer to reload standing up and I am planning on upgrading the Oak shelf that the presses are mounted on to Steel in the near future.

What brand are the lube/sizers? How do the heaters work, the power cords seem to terminate into the wooden base. I ask because One looks like my RCBS that sits on an aluminum heating plate.


Hi.
I have a lyman 450 and a RCBS LamII.
Your " expensive (in España)" factory made aluminiun heating plate are my " cheap (10$)" wooden home made heating base. Its work very well during some years.
Into the wooden base is installed a 60 w resistance of a hot glue gun wrapped in aluminium foil to transmit its heat to the lubesizer. It is the same procedure as the original but with much lower cost.
Bye

44vaquero - the powder hoppers with powder in them should be emptied or covered with an empty can or the like to protect the powder from the sunlight (or greenhouse effect) at that window.

Realgun,

LOL, I know they should not be left filled over long periods. I was actually in process when this picture was taken. One measure is actually empty in the photo another is also empty but does not appear in the shot.

I have replaced 1 or 2 powder tubes over the years due to powder degrading them. Over the short run (week/ten days) it's not something I worry about too much.

No, I reload in a larger shop. The rows of white labels are not related to reloading or casting.

Can you tell that one of my dogs like to chew the corners off boxes?

Last post with photos

I still have half the room to finish and then I can get it all laid out the way I want it done...

With LOTS more room and not having to move things around when I need to use the space and or equipment...

PS... sorry for the crappy cell phone photos

My bench sits in a corner of my woodworking shop. A pair of LnL AP's, one for small, the other for large cases. Second is the supply shelves and scales.

To me reloading is a calming action... I don't just reload to reload and have ammo on hand but that is a great benefit, but it is a way for me to just sit and relax and calm down from the day or week...

Maybe I'm strange but I feel the same way over cleaning guns...
