I have way more hours than I care to admit into it.
Obviously well worth it.
I think I'd still enjoy reloading if I had to do it in a coal pit, but it's nice to be comfortable and have things the way you want it. The work you put into your bench will be icing on the cake.

I'm going to buy one of these from Costco for $199.99. I'm not quite ready for it (well, my space in the basement isn't ready), but I found out today that when Costco is out of 'em, that's it, so I need to get one now while they still have them.

I plan to put some 2x8's or 2x10's across the bottom for a shelf, then add some 2x4 cleats across the uprights with some more 2x8's or 2x10's across those for another shelf. Might even put a plywood back on it to seal the back side up, to keep things from falling off the back of the shelves and to make it even sturdier. It's very sturdy and heavy as it is, but more is better.

This will sit up against a wall in a corner, and I've got shelving to put up on the wall, and a Kennedy machinist's tool box for the benchtop too. I've got plans, just gotta get the basement area ready.

I looked these over. It will work fine for you. With your additions it will be a nice bench. I'd suggest attaching it securely to the wall........Creeker

I built that! I just improved it to tubmle two coffee cans now. All it is a steel fraim screwed to plywood, an old 1/4 hp motor and belts to turn a 3" PVC pipe. Place the coffee cans on top and good to go! I have an investment of about $10.00 in it with scrap around the houes.

Yea....you are about the 3rd one to IM me and ask for the details. I'm not home now but sometime I'll get better pictures to post. But imagine a way to turn a coffee can. I used 3" PVC pipe and crushed a round steel plate on the end with set collars and turned it with a 1/4 HP motor.

Here's mine. I'm fairly new to reloading. I remodel apartment complexes so I had the countertop left over from an old apartment. Also, under the countertop I used an old solid core door cut down to size to add weight. I also put the scale at eye level to keep from having to bend down all of the time.

LAH- If you look closely, I took a 10" 5/8 drill bit and went all the way through the countertop, the door, and the 2x4 at the bottom. I had a friend look from the side to make sure I was drilling straight. I then took an 8" 5/8 lag bolt and mounted the press all the way through everything. It's going nowhere! I put a spare piece of base mold around the bottom of the counter to cover up the old door. The old hing marks were showing.

I would post but if the wrong eyes seen it the law would likely exhibit keen interest in my goings-on!

Heads up to all;

There is 6 Foot Heavy Duty Bench @ Sam's Club for the same price of the 8ft one at Costco... it even looks a little bit better
