    Since I started reloading, I've moved twice and bought two new presses. So I've posted in this thread a few times. I'm still unpacking, but got my bench set up with my LNL. The Lee Turret will go slightly to the right of it. Still haven't quite figured out how I'll mount it yet.

    The flag on the right is the first model flag of the 69th NY Infantry of the Irish Brigade in the Civil War. The writing at the bottom is Gaelic and means "Who never retreated from the clash of spears"

    Nice but since you live in TN and I live in NY I think you should send it to me. :)

    I have the same Gadsden flag and a Hodgdon Powder flag the same size.

    Here are my benches on a bad day. Fertile minds thrive in apparent chaos

    Just started to reload a few months ago so I use an old bookshelf I strengthen with some additional wood and drilled it into the ground.

    It does what I need it to do. :)

    Can't wait to have my own home and build a nice setup in the basement or garage.

    Temporary loading bench under construction

    Just moved out of my house into a two bedroom rent house until we buy another house. Space is limited so this little bench I'm working on is 2'x4', working on it tonight. I use to have a 24x34 shop to reload in. But ya gotta make do.

    These are pictures of my previous configuration. Moved it all out, epoxy coated the floor and reconfigured everything a bit and added some new equipment. No pictures of my big 75 pound bottom pour ingot mold as it only gets run outside or at work. Will try to post up some fresh pics soon.

    Grassman, I suggest that you put a 2x4 from front to back at an angle on the legs to provide more structure. I am concerned that if you put a reloading press on that table, there may not be enough structure to handle the torque that will be generated when you pull the handle on the press.

    It will not hurt to put a cross member connecting the back legs also.

    Just a suggestion.

    I agree...definitely brace your legs up a bit. Otherwise a very nice bench!

    That is a very cool bench. Get much wider and you will be stretching to reach shelved items above the bench. I like it!

    It was cheap too, I got $25 into it. It's just a temporary bench until we get in another house. But it will work for now.

    Epoxy finish dry on floor & moving stuff back into reloading area. Looks like new configuration is going to have room for 5 benches.instead of 3.

    Finally be able to mount all the equipment. Did primer inventory and moved the oldest 108,000 under one of the benches so handy to grab as needed. Amazing how small a foot print over 100k primers .
