Yes I did hate to drill but had no choice and figured it would be permanant. No it did not come with a shelf but that was remedied easily. I bought a 8 ft 2X12 and slid it in. no cutting no screw down, nothing. So the cost was only $7.99. I need to seal or paint it and thats all. The bench is 8ft so I have a lot of room to clean guns etc. I think it was a great buy and is working out well

My Tactical Closet

turned a storage closet into my man cave this weekend...here's the result.

Thanks to all on this board that helped me decide reloading would work for me!

Is that Loadmaster carrier all natural metal? I see no black paint on it. Maybe it is just the lighting... Nice setup.

I pulled my Loadmaster apart today, completely, down to the last piece. I gave it a complete cleaning and lubed it all as it went together. After close to 20K rounds, it was getting pretty dirty. I was amazed at how easy these are to work on. Nice choice in equipment and a great layout. Seems to work very well in a limited space.
Yes, I am guilty.

Grizz44....yep. It's all metal. Well, except for the prmer system. I'm already cussing that primer system. It seems to jam on me every few rounds or so. I've loaded ~150 .45 ACP (doing them 1 at a time til I'm comfortable), with about 40 "bad" primers.

I'll give it a while before I decide it's the machine and not me.

This old lab bench is collecting dust in my office. I'm trying to convince my boss that it needs to go away. Ima thinkin' it would make a dandy addition to my basement for a reloading/gunsmiffin' bench! All steel with a composite top, it's a heavy sucker. Put it up against the wall, with some shelving on the top mounted to the wall, and I'd be set!

2X4 Basics bench

I used the 2X4 Basics kit to make mine. I did not follow the instructions though. Instead of one 2x4 as a cross brace I used multiple 2x6's to strengthen it. I doubled up the 2x6 on the spots I was going to mount my presses. 3/4 plywood for the top. It very stout and heavy. Sturdy as a concrete wall. It it kinda cluttered. Still have shelves to build and organizing to do.

Where are all the Forster/Bonanza Co-ax Presses?

For those that haven't seen...

BTW, can we make this a sticky?

Mine got relocated.

The wife let me have my older sons room when he moved out. Now I have a man cave to hide in.

I built my reloading bench out of scraps from an entertainment center someone threw away, although I did have to add a couple of pieces of new wood.

Just getting back into reloading

The bench below was built by using scrap wood at my local Lowe's store. Total cost around $40. This was my first attempt and plan to add a sister archery table as well. Enjoy.

Don't know about you guys but I got some x-mas money burning a hole in my pocket. I see a hutch for my bench (already posted) the dispenser for my charge master and a Redding 2400 in my near future. I will repost with my new hutch. Anyone else get or getting some new toys for X-mas? Lets see pics

I'm always impressed at peoples ingenuity in storing reloading equipment. Myself, I prefer old kitchen cabinet uppers. There's just something I like about being able to close the door and not see my stuff. Mind you, they're overfilled and the hobby spreads out on the bench. But, as I see it now, I have plenty of storage in two double cabinet upppers above my bench.

I've been following and contributing to this thread for some time now and have yet to see any "pre-fabbed" reloading benches.

Does anyone make such a beast? Is there a reloaders cabinet/bench out there that's specifically marketed as such? Just wondering what "industry" folks would offer.
