In fact this is a RCBS take on the Forster Co-Ax type of press

This is my little get away . After I moved into a house I built my own bench. just use to have have everything on the little bench next to it. Now I use it for my single stage presses. Its on wheels so if I don't need the presses I can move them back to the other corner when I'm not using them . Like all the room now . And all the extra light .

Au summit press, is not really comparable to coax as it might seem. Some major differences are that it moves the die not the shell, and of course regular shell holders and threaded die socket, which btw can be used for hornady LNL bushings which I like. I took the time to calibrate it to my progressive so I can swap dies with no adjusting. I also drilled the shell holder holder so that primers fall through the table rather than out the front.

Thanks about the turn table. I've had that large diameter ring for years, and just got a 1/2" steel plate burned for it, drilled it on the bottom for a quick pin and I've got 45 positions that I can rotate it to.

I call is setup v2.2 because I'm already planning on v3.0 which will feature this turn table as it's centerpiece. Thanks for a ton of inspiration on this thread feeding my compulsion!!

It's not a great picture, but here's my reloading 'bench'. It's a portable setup I made based on posts on this forum - currently sitting on the desk in my office.

Added the auto indexing to the RCBS Pro 2000

The press is a tank, but it runs backwards from Dillon and Hornady and that made me not use it as much as I should. So the auto indexing kits came in and I got it on... Much better! I took the photos before it was completed but now its running and it's much better.

My relatively new setup is below: The bench is a Seville Classics UltraHD Lighted Workbench I bought off Amazon for $247 (175 + $72 shipping). The bench top is nice and solid, 1.5 inches thick. 51"X28" surface, two stainless steel drawers, stainless steel pegboard, built in light, and a shelf above the light that you can barely see holding dies and other supplies. The steel pegboard was a nice touch and you can see that along with hooks, I've got magnets stuck to it and holding other bits and pieces. Lee Breech Lock mounted on the left because I'm left handed. I keep the Hornady Tumbler beside it on a standard cheap table so it doesn't interfere with the scale.

All mounts on 3" steel frame held by bolts and with levelrs on the legs. The bench is standing or tall stool height, not sitting height.

I figured I couldn't build anything near this sturdy or useful for anything near that price.

If I'm just prepping brass, sure I'll have one or two.
Not when loading though, although one or two likely wouldn't hurt. Still, it's not a good habit to get into.

Is that a mirror or do you actually have TWO LnL Presses? Nice space by the way!

ngnrd, that is an awesome portable setup.
I'm about to have a big change in my living space. Moving to the city for a little while and not liking it any at all. Anyway, I'll be in a small apartment, probably for a couple of years. Walking out to the man cave will not be an option. My dad and brother live in town, but I don't want to have to go over there every time I want to crank out a few rounds.

A setup like that would be ideal for me. I'll be copying your design.

My new bench is starting to come together.





I have to use my bench for cleaning and gunsmithing projects too so I made a mount for my loader so I can clamp it in my under bench vise. Turned out decent.

Thanks

I made the bench long enough to have two black guns on it at one time for cleaning. The next issue was what to do with them before and after cleaning, it seems to be working out well so far.

I still need to run my compressed air drop hose over...it never ends.

Copy away! But, it's not exactly my design... I copied somebody else too.
