    I've been waiting to chime in on this thread for ages and now I finally can! I would like to extend a very big thanks to daveinflowerybranchga for his excellenct advice and the time he spent sending PM's back and forth with me. He is a wealth of knowledge and a very nice guy to give so freely of his time and expertise.

    On to the pics!

    My bench, simple, but functional. The top is a sheet of 3/4" birch plywood that I cut in half and then glued and screwed together. It is very robust. The frame is simple 2X4 construction. The whole assembly will be attached to the foundation just as soon as I can borrow my fathers power driver.

    Please note the Garand was put in the picture simply for aesthetic value! :neener:

    the vertical reloading bench is cool. that is a great idea and a very nice setup. do you pull a chair up and sit down or stand there?

    OK,
    I'll jump on board. Behold my humble diggings. A little messy, but it shows that I virtually live in here during the winter months. :evil:

    I finally got mine done. It has been under construction for eleven months. Colors are RCBS green, Lyman orange, Lee red, and Speer yellow. Just mounted and set up my new Lee Classic Turret press today.

    1967 rock chucker portable reloading station

    [​IMG]

    Reloading .30-06 ammo.

    Rock chucker press above is seen in abq new mexico.

    Guns and ammo featured a picture of a wood support for rock chucker.

    I measured. Bought 1 inch angle iron and gas welded [my first and last gas welding job] in psychology department shop at washington state unversity in about 1967.

    Press has been working great for about 40 years.

    Lots of weight is important to stabilize press.

    When I am done reloading, press goes into storage. Sometimes for several years.

    regards from senior

    SD624,

    Do you have to fill that powder measure from the roof?

    Here's my humble setup.

    My guess is that SD624 is a .50BMG reloader. Take a look at the first press in his conga line. At 200+ grains a throw, a tall powder measure might be just the ticket.

    Not to the roof but almost to the ceiling.

    It holds about 3.5 pounds of powder.

    Hutch nailed it 50 BMG. With 230 grains of 5010 per round seemed like all I was doing was filling up the damn powder measure. Added the larger hopper so I could do 100 rounds without filling it up.

    I enjoy seeing the neighbors pick up their pace as they walk by while I'm reloading.
