Here's my most recent pic, but it looks different all the time. Now I have a couple of little dandy powder measures on there too.

my (hopefully) temporary setup in basement

Almost finished remodeling my sons new bedroom. Unless my wife objects I hope to build new bench in his old room.

Got this idea from RustyFN

Just got stocked up on Rainiers, they were on sale at Midway last month for $74.99 per 1,000. They are now $94.99. I think I may get Berry's from Cabela's next time. There shipping rate is better. Cost of componets is getting ridiculus. Can U gess how many I got in this jar? That puppy sure is heavy!

My bench being designed...


I'm reloading last 8 years, and had many different benches so far.

I just moved to Canada, and now I have a big house which one room will be dedicated to my guns and reloading activity (Thank you darling...)

With all my previous experiences, I designed a bench. I'll start cutting the wood next weekend.

I used a software called Alibre, which does not allow me to have more than 17 pieces, so the shelf is not shown in these pictures...

Basicly, it is based on NRMA reloading bench... I made some modifications to dimensions and added 2 beam for extra support.

If any of you need dimensions, just let me know, I think this software should be able to produce a list...

My old Lyman press still cranking it out after 25 years.

My space is a bit limited but this old filing cabinet does the trick. Got my old filing cabinet at good will for $5 nice to wish they had a 4 drawer one its getting a little tight in there now days

An old tackle box I keep all my small stuff in.

Nice press

WOW that press looks SUPER HEAVY DUTY!!! Being yellow it looks like it should have "CATERPILLAR" on it.

Its and old orange Lyman press I bought when I first got into reloading over 25 years ago it still produces very accurate ammo for 30-06 on down. If I recall I give about $35 for it when I bought it

Im with ya Kevin108,,, this is the extent of my reloading equipment for now anyway. Only reload for my 22 hornet which I had to send in for a defective underlug, still waiting on its return. I really enjoy using this system , Hands on for sure. Hope soon to get same kit for my Marlin 1894 44 mag, and the wifes marlin 336 32 special. I really enjoy taking this camping with us and doing a little reloading at our camp site. OH , the harmonica comes in handy when the wife starts bitchin.

New House, need suggestions

If you refer to post #160 I had my reloading bench in a small corner of the basement. It is supposed to be a roughed in bathroom, 5x10 feet. In the past six months I have gotten divorced and although money poor was able to buy a house of my own. Now I have a 10x11 foot bedroom to turn into a reloading room/man cave/sports room. I have moved my equipment in and roughly found a spot for each item. I would like to get suggestions of ways to finish the job. Any suggestions are welcome for color/wood themes to placement of reloading items. I definetly know shelves are in the the future. Here are some pics of the room as it is now. I am not set up for reloading yet but with deer and pheasant season upon me I want to move fast. Thanks in advance.

I built mine from the NRMA plans about 7 years ago. It's not pretty, but it's home.

Basement reloading

Here are a few pictures of my reloading setup. It is in the basement where my wife wants it. It is a nice dry area but the ceiling is 5 foot tall. I have to get around using a wheeled chair. Since most of what I do is sitting it is a good environment. I have learned to keep my head down. This icon kinda describes it
