Was that a "Natty Lite" I saw on the bench. I guess you can buy reloading supplies with the money you save on beer.

It's kind of busy, as far as most benches go. Made from recycled kitchen cabinets out of an apartment complex. The manager was selling them for $15 each. I did have to buy a counter top though. Total cost was about $250 or $300.

Photomask,

Loading 50BMG on the big RCBS, a good solid rock chucker single stage for all other rifle, and two 550b's, one for large primer, one for small...

At least, that's how I would have done it....

Course, I am a bit pissed (Drunk)right now so I may have gotten it wrong...

Cheers, Mate.

Photomask,
First, WELCOME to the Forum!!
Sweet looking set up...all in a neat and organized row. I like it! Like others mentioned, great cabinets.

WhisperFan,
You too sir, Welcome to the Forum!!
Your set up reminds me of my nook in our basement. Kinda homey and removed from the hustle of homelife...where a re loader can concentrate on his/her Ps & Qs.
Nice set up!

Bob

WhisperFan,

Is that a Ponsness Warren shot shell reloader on the left side of your bench? If so, which model is it and how do you like it? It looks a lot like a Ponsness Warren I have just acquired. I am going to start reloading shot shells. My PW is a model 375.

Nope - it is an RCBS Mini-Grand in 20ga. I know it isn't the one you mentioned, but I really like it.

Here my bench, humble but it does.

Hopefully this link works, I couldn't get the pictures on here directly. These are picts of my bench, I use 3 presses, an RCBS reloader special that was my first press, I basically use it for de-capping and odd pistol rounds that I don't shoot many of. The next press is an RCBS Ammomaster Auto progressive, it has been upgraded with a competition powder measure for accuracy, a case activated linkage kit and a powder lock-out die for safaty issues. I have two upper plates for it, one set up for .44 Mag and one set up for 9mm, this makes change overs very fast. The last press on the end is an RCBS Ammomaster 2 single, the two Ammomasters are held on with 7/16 wingnuts so I can swap them around when I need to use the other, this frees up a little bench space and makes it easier to clean rifles on this bench. The tumblers are both set up with different media, one is walnut and the other is corn cob with Flitz added to it.

This thread just keeps getting better.

I like the closed cabinet designs for dust control personally. I have mine in my garage and often reloading is not on the venue, but making dust is.

I have a small shelf at eye heigh on the wall for using at the "in queue" items being employed at the time of cartridge manufacture.

With all the home renovations going on around the country, you should have no problem finding old used house cabinets that make a fabulous bench with a new top and minimal effort.
