The plans in the PDF list the base as 18"x24" if I remember correctly. When I cut that out, it was way too big and clearly not what UltimateReloader built. Turns out UR's is actually 12"x16". When I tried that configuration and centered the 4"x4" column, my concern was the location/press weight would be too forward heavy and tip. I then moved the column back and since my configuration would be on wheels, I lengthened it another 4" for a total length of 20". My base is 12"x20".
