    I will update mine.

    I added some more Auto Disc's, cleaned up the bench a little. I picked up a single stage Lee press for decapping(couldn't beat the $20 price), not mounted yet, and I have one more LAD and a .380 die set on the way. I will be done at that point. Plenty of powders on hand right now too.

    6 Auto Drums!!! You must really like them. I have two. The good folks at Lee got that one right.

    I do like them, I like the adjustability, but most of all they are accurate for the money! At $35 each, well worth it.

    I have a 7th one on the way for the .380 die set that's on the way. I was going to get another auto disc for the .380 since those loads will always remain constant but the auto disc is more money, it was a no brainier.

    Here is my new bench...

    It surely beats reloading on the tiny work stand I've been using for the past 5 years.

    Thank you! The wife was kind enough to let me re-purpose a storage room in the basement. It is nice to have a dedicated reloading space finally.

    If my wife EVER told me what to DO with a space I was considering for myself I'd have to listen!

    :D

    I believe it is pertinent to this thread.....

    How do you embed photos like the ones above rather than with thumbnails?

    Getting ready to post some pics of my gun/reloading room. Just a bit more organizing.

    When you post a reply, you will see a box in the menu that looks a bit like a mountain. If you hover your mouse over it, you will see "insert image". To use this, you must have a URL of a image residing on a web site. In my case, I have my own web site and I can FTP images there then paste or enter the URL in the dialog that appears when I click the "Insert Image" box.

    If you do not have your own web site like most users, you will need to upload your image to a web service that allows you to copy images there, then get the URL for the Image that you want to show and paste it in the dialog that pops up when you click the "Insert Image" box.

    Here is a link that describes several sites that will share your images.

    I hope that this helps you and others.

    Here is an example of what I was talking about:

    I've got my Dillon 550 mounted on the bed of my old south bend lathe (6' bed). It makes for a solid mount.

    I did buy a Lee single stage for de-capping, and two more Auto Drums! I retired the Auto Disc. I wasn't happy with that at all, even with a 9mm/115fmj/HS6 load that I like and load by the 100's, was sometimes low by .4g. Not a big deal but not acceptable to me.

    Making the most out of apartment living. A real bench will get made when I buy a house.
    Loaded up my first big run of ammo tonight.

    Press on B&D Workmate

    I am still planning on building a reloading bench/cabinet; but for now continue to use the B&D Workmate (going on 3 years). Note the 2x10 has a 2x4 screwed into the bottom which the Workmate clamps onto. I secure one or two 25 lb weights to help stabilize it. The board has holes & shape for my Rock Chucker on one end, and the Lee LoadMaster on the other. The advantage is little space needed. I spread an old sheet on the carpet and set this up next to my regular desk which I use for the electronic powder measuring and other handling. Not the best for sure, but it stows away quickly and takes little room. I load 38spcl, 357, 45acl, 223, 308, and 458. I plan on adding a piece of plywood to one leg set to help stability. It works!
