    OK. I recently got a second 650 so I built a new bench for it. Now that I built the bench I am thinking of using it for cleaning since it is nice and high. I built it high so I wouldnt need a second strong mount. I use the one 650 weekly while the others will be used less.

    What do you guys think. I know a lot of you have multiple loaders so you have already thought about this.

    The question is which setup should I do

    Keep all 3 presses on the current bench
    Move one 650 and the Rockchucker to the new bench(picture 2)

    Here is my current bench. Currently I clean on the close end.

    Here are the new benches. This is how the RCBS and 650 would go.

    I have 3 progressive and 2 single stage loaders on one bench right now, a tad over 6 feet long. Here is a pretty poor pic but you get the idea. http://www.thehighroad.org./attachment.php?s=&postid=265018

    I say buy another strong mount and nail all 3 presses to one bench, you really don't need all that much room for a press and that would give you one full open bench to do all the other operations that a guy needs to do. Open bench space is at a premium in most loading rooms, keep all you can.

    I have to agree with HSMITH,
    whereas my loading room has that 6 pounds of worms in a 3 pound can feel about it!

    Nice setup Jeeper.

    I think having dedicated bench for cleaning and another for loading is the way to go. Keep the chemicals and mess that result from cleaning away from the reloading goodies.

    Also, having a work bench without any bolted-on equipment for that trigger return spring/plunger to hide under after it goes shooting off during a detail strip is a good thing. ;)
