    This is my setup. I'm new to reloading, just got the equipment last week. I've been lurking around the site for awhile and doing some reading.

    That's a nice set up and clever use of the desk you've got there Devil . Very common sense approach to space and equipment. Good for you.

    Rembrandt-- I just have to tell you that between the pics of some of the beautiful guns you own, and that SWEET reloading/gun/work room....that you suck, and I hate you.On that note, are you looking to adopt a 33 year old?I cook pretty good, and I'm stronger and smarter than I look...I think it would be a smart move on your part..really.Give me a call,I can be packed and leaving the wife and kid in the dust in under an hour....seriously.:D:neener:

    OK fellas don't laugh, I'm just getting started. I used a bench design idea from a friend. I used his setup and liked it so well, I tried to emulate it...

    Good thread - I'll add mine to the mix

    Here's the handloading corner of my shop - or most of it:

    [​IMG]

    I built the bench and cabinets after finishing the shop which is one end of a metal building that also houses the garage spaces.

    I live in Texas so, no basement and the shop is air conditioned!

    These are pictures of my buddy's bench, with his Star Press. All the bells and whistles! It takes up about half the space of a 1050 Dillion. I'm soon to have one of my own, but it's missing parts and certainly won't be as slick as this one!

    Rembrandt, you make me absolutely sick! How dare you show us a masterpiece like that! You ought to be ashamed of yourself...what are you doing for Thanksgiving? I'd wine and dine you for some help with my reloading bench.

    Seriously, you are one hell of a craftsman...I could only wish!

    I'd be glad to take you fellows in as adopted family, but there has to be some financial incentive to make it worth while.....come to think of it, maybe I could use you as tax deductions?

    My humble bench

    I have been waiting for a long time to post pics of the bench, and I am finally done with it! I used the 2x4 basics kit from amazon for the bench and made it 3'x8'. Very sturdy, although I still may anchor it to the wall behind the bench.

    Actually, I am waiting on an order now! I have lots of pistol powders, but needed a few others to round out the stable for the larger rifle calibers I am loading for now.

    Some very nice looking benches. I would love to learn how to do this. I will start a thread asking for advice.

    Only been reloading less than a year. I load 30-30, .223, and 45 ACP thus far. Makes winter a bit more tolerable. This is part of one wall in my little "gun room".

    The appearance of confusion is an optical illusion. Need to add on.....again.

    Very nice!
    I love seeing how reloaders "think thru the organization" of their benches. I see stuff on every bench that makes me think a bit.

    It doesn't matter if you are new at the hobby or have been doing it for 35 years...good layouts and ideas on every single bench.

    Keep 'em coming.

    Bob

    Here is my bench, it's on one side of my office:

    bench-3.jpg


    I have sense moved the Dillon press 4" closer to the end of the bench

    I just went through this whole tread, i noticed more Dillon and Lee presses than anything else

    Rembrandt,
    I discussed something similar with my accountant a few years ago, he assured me that the tax deduction is not worth the added expense of dependants. You should hold out for some additional incentive
