    I wish the only gun store around me (Gander grab your money and run mnt) has half as much as chris had. I would be in hog heaven. Though they are getting to the point there that i think they do not want you to reload they keep raising their prices on reloading components. Last time I looked a pound of Benchmark was up to $26 and a pound of Reloader 15 was $24. You do not want to buy Nosler bullets from them either. at $50 for a box of 50 22 cal 55gr BT.

    I've been looking hard and there are a couple of things I just don't see on these setups.

    1) SAFETY GLASSES...where are the safety glasses?
    2) FIRE EXTINGUISHERS

    :neener:

    1) Obviously, being worn by the photographers. :)
    2) Being held in the left hand, just in case the flash sets something off.

    Where have you been? We've all got Inergen (Halon type) systems built into the rooms! Also not shown are the cones of armor (like the cone of silence in Get Smart) that automatically drop down in an overpressure situation. :rolleyes:

    My fire extinguisher is right outside the door to my gun room and my safety glasses are in the top of my tool box so they won't get scratched when I am not needing them.:neener:

    I wear saftey glasses all day long. A job I was doing required safety glasses and since I wear prescription I had a pair of safety prescribs. made. The fire ex. is in the room (garage) atached to this room. If this room is on fire I don't want to have to go in to it to get my fire Extinguisher.

    So I finished up my 3rd and hopefully final bench. It's just over 6'X3' and heavier than it looks. Under the ply wood top is 2- 2X4 length wise stacked so basicaly 4X4's then 4- 2X4 stacked width wise. I lift the underneth shelf short so I could put my tumbler and seperater under the bench (as you can see that didn't happen. But I set the shelf low enough and back just far enough that I could use it as a foot rest and also be able to set my bullets and manual on for quick and ease of use. Am going to put a couple of u-bolts through the bottom shelf face with a 20 oz pop (coke) bottle lid. Drill a hole in the lid and run my deprimer tubs down into it.

    Also plan on a couple more of the architect lights (which I have put halogen lights in) on the cabinet and shelves on the end of the bench (never to much light).

    I have a modest setup.

    The Hornady press, dies, and scale are all very nice. The bushings are a great idea.

    The Lyman case tumbler works, but is messy. The "autoflow" feature works, but not all of the media finds it's way to the included bowl.

    I'm only loading .223 Remington for now :D

    RexDart,
    I'm pretty serious about safety...I don't use my regular glasses because they do not have full eye protection...I like wrap-a-rounds.

    Safety Glasses: (3-4 pair around the bench)

    A true pair of prescrip. safety glasses will be marked with Z87 (take a look at your saftey glasses they should have this same mark) on the frames and the lens will be marked also. Mine have side shields that you have to put on near the ear piece and turn them then slide them up to the lens with the arms slightly folded in. Once they are far enough forward you open the arms the rest of the way and the side shields don't move.

    Copy the "IMG" code from photobucket after uploaded. Gives you three or four options, but the IMG one is right. Just copy and paste the IMG "link" that's it!

    Yeap in photobucket after you upload your pics all you have to do is left click on the IMG and it will automaticlly copy then as above. It will look like this when you put it in your post.
    (IMG]http://i228.photobucket.com/albums/ee13/jen-rob/100_1656.jpg[/IMG)
    I substituted parentheses for the block style so it would show up in text.

    If you want it before your text just paste it before if you want text between pics the paste one link then the text then the next link
