This portable bench sucks! But I paid $50 and I'm stuck with it.

I like my Midway portable reloading stand.

It has two presses, a lube-sizer, and powder thrower on it - very convenient.

Still unpacking from the move. At least the bench is situated, and starting to get organized in its new home:

This is EXACTLY the inspiration I needed to see to get me going on cleaning my garage so I can bolt down my brand new Dillon 550 and all of the new reloading equipment I just bought this weekend.

Bravo! You guys have some pretty crafty set ups. Here's what I have to work with so far...



Expect updates to follow! :-)

LAH,

I never smoked those ones, but others. Cigar boxes are great to hold brass at varying stages of processing. My father in-law supplies all that I need.

How folks get by with ONE reloading bench is beyond me. You have got to have a separate bench for bullet casting, bullet lube sizing, case cleaning, single stage presses, turrent presses and progressive presses! I mean, come on folks! hehe.

I am inspired, I will take some photo's this week and report back. Mine currently is based on a Mechanics wheeled cart. It has worked out so far as space has been limited lately. Will get back shortly. Bill

okay, finally got the garage cleaned enough and after about 1500 bullets made, I'm finally able to post my bench.

I'm impressed with the benches & the space. Loading can be done with very little or with tons of stuff. It can be done in the living room, closet, basement, garage, or rooms/buildings just for such. Benches range from mild to wild. Great thread.

I like CapJack's set up. Simple, straight foward & clean. You want to be loaders notice his "stuff". It doesn't take a lot of money or space & I'm just guessing but it looks like he not only loads but casts his bullets also?

Rob, nice set up. Dont forget to turn off the AC while weighing loads.

Everything I have for reloading (except the 2x8), ammo on hand, and cleaning lives in my range bag. It's actually a Dewalt tool bag my sister gave me for Christmas last year but it's been the perfect bag for all this stuff so far!

My girlfriend and I live in a cozy little apartment so I don't have space for a bench, but I still enjoy reloading with my Lee Classic Loader. In the short time I've been doing it, I've banged out hundreds of rounds right there in front of the TV, with her and the cat helping from time to time.

These photos are staged but basically the same layout as when I'm really doing something.

Kevin, that has to be my favorite bench, so far. Extremely inexpensive and best of all, totally portable. I now have no excuse to not start reloading. Thank you.
