    I didn't want to have to change out dies from turrets when I go from one to another that I am working on... so I took some measurements and drew up and cut out (on my CNC router) this 'beta' lee turret stand. So I have a place to set all of them when not in use.

    Need to edit the drawing to make the holes a bit bigger as they were a bit too small. And at first I thought of it as a shelf. But I may just make the cross pieces 'feet' so it can sit on a table top... either way, need to modify them as well.

    Arbo, good to see a fellow woodworker.
    Scroll saw small shelf-brackets with a shelf that has 3/8" lips around and it will work too if near some empty wall space..
    Cool

    Rusty, I "HATE" plumbing; but yours is cool too.

    RustyFN,

    What size pipe & fittings are those? 1/4", 3/8" or ???

    Great idea, I think I'm going to hijack your setup.

    It's all 3/8" fittings. You could get by with less than what it took me but they didn't have all the right parts when I got mine so I had to do it a little different than planned. I needed the extra space on my bench and this got the turrets up and out of the way nice and easy.

    do they not sell dies in the round boxes anymore? I drop my dies back in the box and then put them on a shelf. they even stack if you're careful. My reloading room doubles as a wood shop and I love having a cover for my dies. I've got pillow cases on my presses. (my wife just LOVES that) Saw dust gets everywhere.

    Not when you buy the four die sets.

    I have three set of lee dies and all of them are in the rectangle boxes. Pacesetter rifle dies and Deluxe pistol dies.

    Wanted to keep my spares covered.

    huh. well that's a bummer they don't ship in round anymore. Those boxes were great. Makes sense though I guess. They were bulky to ship and stock I suppose. I am interested in ya'lls alternate solutions though. I have a couple of loadmaster turrets that are just rocking around in the shelf covered with a walmart bag that need better homes.

    Your welcome. The square end of the plug fits prefect in the square hole in the turret.
