pzember,
Welcome sir! I would guess in the USA, we have THOUSANDS and THOUSANDS of people with reloading benches. We like our guns and many of us enjoy making our own ammunition!

Lookinforlunkers,
WOW!! that is a dandy. Congratulations!


Hey MarkT...NICE set-up!! And welcome!!!!

Bob

skidooman603 nice set-up! I really like the die storage. It wouldn't work for me as I use the Lee Classic Cast turret and I keep my die in a turret but that's as nice as I've seen.

Still getting set up with everything. I have a sectioned closet in the master bedroom (closet within a closet) that I've used for a safe room and is now my reloading area. I set the height so I could stand or sit on a stool. Its different but I like to move around. Currently, I have a Lee Breech Lock and a Dillon Super Swage. I'm sitting waiting on a back ordered powder measure then I can start cranking out rounds.

So far, I have decapped and swaged 1000+ 5.56 brass.

You guy's up north are freezing you arses off right now. I did 2.5 years in Bemidji, MN so I know about those long winters. Keep the faith and reload all you can cause it definately helps the sanity!

Just getting Phase I done...the bench itself.

The goal was to make some decent looking and have it inside the house. Since my plan is to get a Hornaday press, I took an old metal work bench and painted it bright red. Fabbed up some vertical boards and brackets for a light fixture, cut out some box openings for an outlet and light switch, replaced the sliders on the drawers with ball bearing slides, and finally laid some plank-type laminate flooring on the metal shelves. I'll need to add some padded liners to the drawers, and experiment with the pegboard a bit, but hope to bolt up a full-on Lock-n-Load next.



I took time to make sure all the electric was metal-coil conduit, commercial-grade switch and outlet, an even manged to find an super heavy-duty medical grade cord for the power inlet. Rubber grommets when wires passed through metal, and lots of tie-down clips to keep it all in place finish up the job today.

Heck, that's a pretty one, Rob. Reloadin' Red!

My stuff's just serviceable;


I usually have two presses mounted, but removed one for some extra room
while casting. I have five or six presses, but the Lee Turret is always bolted
down, usually on the right hand end of the bench, though.
I keep bullets in boxes and bags on the lower shelf, along with some
other accessories.


Some of my turret/die sets.




Powders, melting pot, etc. More primers and bullet molds in the blue cabinet.

thanks creeker. I looked all over the internet before I built it and benefited from this board as well as others. But the top is too small! I plan to put a bigger top on it but I am also looking for a used kitchen cabinet piece to go underneath what will be the overhang. Lots of shelf space though!

Dean W. - nice setup!!

Very organized and efficient - my type of bench!

I especially liked the use of the shelf top with the holes cut for the dies.

Sweet!!!

Red, thanks!
The holes for the turrets work well. I don't know who came up with the idea. I saw a picture of something like it somewhere and figured it was just the ticket.
