    Here is my bench. I am fairly new to reloading so I don't have a ton of stuff yet but plenty to get me going.

    ^and some like the idea of compact. While I am not living truly by what I want to (in terms of not being organized/compact) I mostly blame it on having just moved.

    There is much value in efficiency and careful thought.

    Says the guy who still C-clamps his shotshell press onto a table, but never-mind that. :rolleyes:

    Looks good. I use my tumbler on the floor like that too. Seems quieter and my wife doesn't complain about the noise.

    Here's my bench. I just bought the Lee Turret on the left and don't have it completely tuned up yet. The bench top is made up of (3) layers of old 5/8" plywood I had laying around and then put the formica countertop on it. It is solid! The shelf underneath holds 13 ammo cans and with this additional weight I didn't need to bolt the bench to the wall or floor. I like the formica top, I can write quick notes on it with a grease pencil and easily erase it later. Looks like my single stage press needs a good cleaning....

    Moving indoors for the winter.

    It's getting cold in the garage, time to move the reloading indoors. The picture shows the best use this desk has seen.

    Welcome to THR, Runninshu! Looks like you have a nice (and warm) setup.

    :)

    Runninshu - that is the single most impressive spotting scope I have ever seen ... can you see 22 caliber bullet holes on the moon?

    Close, it's the spotting scope for the nearly blind.

    I'm impressed with the snow. Here in Up-State NY we are enjoying 70 degree weather. That won't last much longer.

    I have woundered if a large Mak, or a Cas, would work for spotting. I, was thinking of getting a large refractor for duel use. The problem is a large refractor is very large.

    This is an old pharmacy work bench that was being replaced from my place of work before I retired.
    Yes, I swallowed my pride and begged for it.

    Weighs well over 275#

    15 fully extendable drawers 18"x12"x4" deep

    Yea, it's not bad...if it gets too loud I just close the door leading to that area.
