Just got my ol' family room converted into the new "Gun Room". I even bought a new Hornady LNL AP press that will speed up my reloading. The ol' "Rock Chucker" is still doin' duty as my .308 press.
I've finally got everything in one place. Just need to put in the trim and install the wall stereo.

Ahh carpet. My basement floor gets coooooold when I'm loading, and I'm too paranoid to put a space heater in the reloading room. Perhaps I should invest in some good carpet next.

^^ That's a nice clean setup!

Trent:

Carpet gets dirty. Goto Sears and get yourself one or more of their rubber shop mats; it was only $30-40. in addition to protecting your feet from a cold concrete floor, it also cushions your joints if you stand while reloading. I noticed quite a difference between standing on and off the mat.



And there is nothing wrong with an electric space heater on a concrete floor. It gets a bit chilly here in NE Ohio. I have a thermometer I got from the NRA that does a good job of telling me the temp and humidity. Today, my room was at 59F before turning on the heater. After a few minutes, it was a pleasant 69F.

Here is the thermometer on the shelf beside the ipod player.

Kevin,

Where in NE Ohio are you? I grew up in Barberton, just outside of Akron.

I am mildly amazed that I see so little in the way of older presses. Most everyone has benches full of Lee, RCBS, and Dillon stuff.

Where are all the old-timers and their equally old equipment?

I wouldn't mind a Hollywood Senior single stage...I just haven't gotten around to snagging one yet. That said, it will probably come after a Hornady L'nL-AP progressive...

Thank you, Redneck With a .40 (post #48)

You gave me the idea to use a 2x6" board to mount my Lee press to my bench (with uneven edge). You saved me!

Vanrichten,

Are those Franklin Mint old west badges in that display case on the wall?

If so, I have both sets.

I spy a RWVA hat in that last pic also. I got one of those also!

(still haven't gotten a shot of my bench yet, it is still too damn cold out there!)

this is of two rock chucker supremes, auto charge dispenser, cartridge prep station, we don't use the lyman trimmer anymore... we use lee trimmers instead, and a bunch of dies, we don't keep our powders or primers with our bench just because it's in the garage

Old timer here with plenty of old stuff that I make good use of. Such as using my old Hollywood for a bookend. Also makes good doorstop. (Photo attached) And speaking of old stuff, does anyone recognize the tool in other attached photo.

Thumbs up New Man Cave!

Well, I told the wife I needed some reloading stuff for Christmas.
We aren't going to have ours until Monday when the kids get in from Missouri so..... I took the time to rearrange stuff. We keep getting rid of kids, married now and out of the house so I took over a bedroom in the basement.

I didn't choose the color and I think Lavender is a relaxing color anyway!

Here is the door!


The computer in the corner!


The shelves:

The presses:



As I was cleaning up I found a bunch of empty, imagine that, empty ammo boxes! I have got to fill them UP!



Enjoy, Merry Christmas!

Real men can even wear pink and no one will ask if they are manly!

That last kid to have that room was a girl! What can I say. Too cheap to repaint and hey, lilac is a soothing color!

Sacrilege! Say something like this on the wrong reloading site and you would be getting more than a lump of coal in your stocking. Guido Claus and his Goombahs would be paying you a visit w/ a "special present" you couldn't refuse.

MY Senior prominently bolted to the bench:


Amidst other old, but supremely serviceable presses, including two other, even older Hollywoods down on the end.

Kevin, you have too many reloaders and that's an illness! The only cure there is by selling them to me.
