Woodworkers use 80/20 as well as standard t track.

I've been learning a lot from you guys. Finally got my bench done. Thanks for all of the insight. I'm just reloading 45acp for now and hopefully 38/357 and .223 in the future.
Thanks,
Hiwbiwwy

I'm fortunate enough at this point to have two homes. Each has a loading room or bench. This picture is my closet-under-the-stairs bench in an apartment in Brooklyn, NY.
It is small, only 30 inches wide. Kind of crowded as you can see and yet that little set up has produced more than 100K reloads of cartridges and shotshells.

Ironhat: Looks to me like a flashlight holder with one of those inexpensive led flashlights like you get at Harbor Freight. Pretty nifty idea!

Yes, it does look like it but I didn't want him feeling insulted if it was a camera - looking for what? I don't know.

I just got around to setting my reloading room back up. I had it boxed up for a couple of years.

This is the cabinet that I keep all the powder and dies, bullets and other odds and ends.



This is the bench that i do my gun cleaning on:



This is the cabinet I store my small supply of hunting clothes:



This bench is going to be my case prep bench.



And this is my reloading bench.



I am just getting back into it so I am sure I will have some questions along the way.

I think you have the furniture part covered though. Excellent and very comfy looking set up you have there!

That space use to be a part of my woodshop which has now been sub-divided into 3 rooms. A billard room, a plant and sewing room for the LOML, (she starts her own plants) and the reloading room, or the gun room as my boys call it. The cabinets were all from my old wood shop, with the exception of the reloading bench, and that is a part of an old bar that I tore out of a building I was remodeling, which is somewhat ironic as I don't drink. But the bench is the perfect height for me for reloading. The woodshop was moved out to the garage a couple of years ago.

Hello All,

This is my very "modest" "newby" set up which I'm guessing all you vets out there can tell by my staged product placement.

I've been lurking a while and really enjoying this site.

I have a heck of a lot to learn and I'm gonna enjoy every minute of the process. I'm already learning a lot from you folks so "Thank You All"!

Take care!
Troy

Is there any problems with an all steel reloading bench that you guys can think of. A friend of mine is a steel worker and says he can weld me up one at cost.

Potentially, static electricity build-up, particularly if you work on carpeted floor.

New to reloading. Built the bench from my own design... 3/4" plywood cut to 6' then in half and double layered. I put the press on a 2x6 bolted to the bench so that it could be removed easily.

To eliminate static buildup, go barefoot when reloading on carpeted floors.

Some enjoy the loading as much as the shooting.

It is never too hot nor too cold in my cave and thus far a loading session has never been called because of rain..........

I'd rather load.
