Exclamation Portable/My Only Reloading Bench




Here is my set up. I live in a apartment and just got started reloading 223. I needed a reloading bench that didn't take up much room and could be stored in a closet when I'm not using it. Its also really convenient to take back home to my range to fine tune my loads. Everything is lockable and it is as stable as whatever you clamp it to. I made it out of Hard Maple Plywood and some 3/4 boards. I have only loaded up some preliminary loads and so far the only thing I found I am going to have to buy is a case tumbler, cleaning them all by hand is a real pain.

Here is a picture of it with the front on it and the side drawer open.

Shouldn't that movie have a disclaimer.

ICED TEA!

Seriously, on another thread some guys posted their pictures of loading rooms. I posted "A clean desk is the..........................".

Then I made shelves under the tables, arranged the biggest part of my stuff and neatened up the table tops. Then I took pictures. Dickle, neat (straight up).

Here's my little setup. Most of the storage is under the bench along the back. I like to keep all my favorite load data in spreadsheets on the computer so I don't have to fiddle with books as much.

Can you tell the bench is homemade?

I agree you should not reload while drinking. However, I'm so curious as to what is in that glass??? Come on BD, I say Jack and Coke and a few melted cubes. But, one of my best friends in WV told me heck no, gotta be Beam and Coke. We gotta know!!!

Born in Nitro. Poca high school. WV Tech and State.

Dove, where does your buddy live?

That is George Dickel straight up. Love my sourmash. Ever so often I pick up two gallon bottles; one Dickel, one Jack Black. Been known to take home a jug of JBeam, Canadian Mist, or Wild Turkey.

If you shoot cowboy, my alias is Red Cent.

Since I'm an apartment dweller my bench is down in our storage room. Only have about 30 sq ft of useable space but it does the job. Its the temporary man cave while I'm at school.

My bench doubles (and triples) for several other hobbies. So I picked out where I wanted to mount my press and powder measure and then used tee nuts (the nut with teeth on it to bite into the wood) so I wouldn't have to reach under the table to re-bolt the thing down if/when I need to move it. I can have both removed and replaced in less than 3 minutes. Biggest problem is making sure to not strip out the tee nut.

Dangit, Dove,

You know I love my drink about as much as anybody and hate to feel left out of a good toast so here is a toast back at you with Cutty Sark on the rocks.

Cheers...
