That looks like a pretty decent set up. It will evolve over time.

I like the multisided bench. I make do with a 12 and a 6 footer for my nine presses.

For a chair I use the Harbor Freight shop/bar stool with the silly flames on it. It works for my setup.

NO way I will post my wreck! I load for all gauges shot shells , cast bullets, reload pistol and rifle, it and all my fishing gear is in a 8x10' portable building, it is a total remodel when going from shot gun to rifle loading , casting is another bench setup change. Its my man cave but it sure is cramped.

I've been working on a new bench all day. It's going to be on locking wheels with sliding doors on front and back. Should have some pictures next week. It's been mounted on my woodworking table but I'm tired of moving it every time I do a woodworking project.

Ronno,
Wow, and I thought I "had it bad"!! With three presses, I'm not even in your league!
However, I must admit, I do have a "few" quick-changes for my 650 that indicates I too have the "bug"

I moved my bench to another location in the house as I was running out of room in the room it was in. Here it is in it's new Location.



This old entertainment center was going to be thrown out so I figured I put it to use:



And this is the gun cleaning area which will become the new reloading bench area once I get my woodshop clear of projects so I can build an appropriate bench for reloading.



The bench I am using now for reloading will become the gun cleaning bench when the new relaoding bench is completed.

Got a new bench the other day, a Gladiator workbench, bought it from Amazon and they shipped it for free (hard to beat that). Only problem is it looks so nice I didn't want to drill into it so I am just mounting my press to a piece of wood and clamping that to the bench and it seems plenty stable plus I can move things around easily. Now I just need to get another press to complement the single stage...

I like it a lot for precision loads, it is really slow for bulk stuff that I just plan on plinking with but that is where my next future press is coming in.

I have 3 for the 550 but I will need some for the 650 once it is set up. I need to build yet another bench and redo the room... It's a hobby I LOVE that has grown into so much more. I spend hours there reloading, I try to reload 5 out of 7 days a week using different machines each time so I end up stocking everything instead of just a few.

But to me this is all part of the entire shooting experience. And I love it, I truly don't understand the people that say I can load for about an hour or so and I am DONE with it for a few days... That just is not in my blood I guess.

Think this is bad you should see my fishing equipment! I have a had time finding everything, so my wife says if you can't find it all you have too much and NEED to get rid of something... I tell her, "Well I will miss you dear" that does it, she won't say anything about my gear for a while!

I finally got around to building my reloading bench. It has been mounted to my woodworking table. I decided to make it mobile so I can move it around and made it to open on both sides to make it easier to access the contents. I made sliding doors to keep dust from the rest of the shop from getting inside. The wheels are locking and rated to 200 lbs. each. The top is 3/4" plywood with another 1/4" piece of smooth plywood glued to it. Got a piece of Formica from the cabinet shop, which ironically is the same as in our house.
The top is 32"x65" long x 36.5" high. My original plan was 66" long but the scrap piece of Formica was only 65.5" long. All the edges are rounded over as are the corners. There is 1.25" overhang all the way around it. I used some old wormy popular for the face framing and cut slots for the 1/8" dry erase board for the doors. I may paint the sides and frame later. Not completely set up and not in it's final position in the shop. Seems to have room for everything I have.

Awesome!
I use this rolling butcher block type thing alongside my bench that Im considering adding some shelves or drawers to..not sure I can pull it off though.

It also has a really neat accidental feature that I've found useful. The butcher block is about 15"x15" square with a drawer attached underneath. It has a small trough about an inch and a half from all the edges, it follows the edges and forms a square. This little trough has caught everything that tries to roll off the work surface. Dies, bullets, runaway primers. Everything. I will definitely be incorporating it into the next surface I build. Comes in very handy.

15 yrs ago I built a 10' x 10' feed/tack room for my wife. She gave up the horses 2 yrs ago so it's mine now.
The bench in progress. 24 deep x 80" long. Next is a shelf along the most of the length of the bench but was wondering how many use some peg board and what do you hang on it?
And yes that's a bait freezer next to the bench. Tarpon season now if you know where to look.

I mount my pegboard on 1x2 furring strips.

She gave up horses?
