I wish I had the money to have half the stuff I see in your photos, Ronno, you lucky dog! Beautiful set up with supplies to last - that's what I call Heaven!

Ronno - is it fair to assume you shoot competitively? What discipline?

Do good at matches, show them you have something that can help them... I do seminars, radio shows, and videos.

Here is my meager bench. Ill have to paint the rest but I chose yellow for the working surface to provide high contrast for stuff that can get dropped/spilled (powder, primers, etc.)

I am relatively new to reloading, but I thought I'd post a few pics of my setup. I am relegated to 1 corner in my 1-car garage, but I feel that I've definitely made the most of the space I have. My wife's SUV still fits completely inside the garage.

The reloading bench was originally one of those rolling kitchen cart pieces, with a wire rack for wine bottles. It's pretty sturdy and offers just enough work space for me.

My dad helped me design and build the custom fold-away work bench. It took us about 3 hours to cut and build and cost maybe $25 in materials. It's got two 3/4" pieces of plywood screwed together as a table top. I mostly use it for gun cleaning.

Thanks! It was my idea, but my dad deserves the credit for engineering it. It's the perfect height to stand and clean guns. I love it.

Your dad is the man. That is so cool. And the best part is that it doesn't look too complicated. He was just smart enough to envision it.

Here's my bench (still in its infancy) 4 months so far and it keeps on growing. To be fair though, its also my workbench for other hobbies/ projects.

A little Blue and a little Green. Looks like you have made some good choices. Always good to see diversification on a bench.

Starter reloading bench

Hey! Pretty new to the site. Here's my first reloading bench, a small converted computer desk. Hoping to turn out some 44 mags soon for Ohio deer season this year.

1in9Twist - where did you get the black handle on your LNL-AP? It looks much more sturdy than the one I ordered from the ultimatereloader web page. The one I ordered flexes quite a bit at the end of each pull.

Welcome to THR and the wonderful world of handloading, asayers! That Co-Ax is a good, sturdy press.

My humble beginnings

I was able to construct my first reloading setup with help from some of the guys from GT, THR, and Brian Enos' sites. Good information, and possibly some that could save others from potential bad situations...for example, the .45 ACP small primer thing.

Dillon RL 550B, setup for .45 ACP. I've got some 9mm dies on the way this week!
