Kind of ghetto, but it works pretty well so far. Have the vice so I can change out from trimming to throwing powder. Bench was too small to mount everything. I also have an RCBS digital scale not shown.

The bench is a surface plate stand work was going to throw out so I made a redwood base with oak plywood over it. Casters are from mc MasterCarr as are the knife edge inserts. I made the pressmount on a drill press from scrap material we had in machine shop at work. Work light on the side also has a magnifier think I got it from grainger. Have a Lyman tumbler as well. I used 3/8-16 bolts and washer to mount the vice. 1/4-20 screws and washers for the press.

I plan on selling this house eventually so I wanted something I could roll onto a moving truck. I think I'd say mission accomplished in that regard. It ismoveable and super sturdy, which is what I was going for.

Let me know your thoughts! I still need a way to better organize bullets and accessories. We were going to check out the container store, or IKEA or something.

17+1, that looks awesome, it works and prefect for someone with not a lot of available space. Love the light and the way you mounted everything.....i bet one day with a little paint or molding it would look even nicer but honestly, pretty cool as it is.

Thanks bro! I was actually thinking of painting it...same gray at the surface plate stand. It took me months to get it all together and build it. All my equipment was in storage since I bought the house about 4 years ago.

Same think happened to me FL size 308 fired in M1A...takes a lot of force no matter how well you lube it. I built my bench shown in above posts after pulling the press out of multiple cheap benches. My current setup is pretty much indestructible.

I've had my press for almost a year, finally got a proper cabinet. I still haven't loaded a single round though...but almost ready.

Built a bench in my bedroom so I can reload while watching tv or whatever. Used 2x4's with a plywood top primered and painted. Anchored the bench to a wall so it doesn't move when using the press. Just got the Lee anniversary kit. Waiting on my dies, digital scale and digital caliper to arrive. Going to add a small vise and a shelf underneath for storage.

You may wanna consider beefing up that shelf the loader is mounted to, especially if you're gonna load rifle. .75" just isn't enough to last very long.

You may want to re-think your strategy of watching TV or whatever while you reload. Sounds like a recipe for disaster. Also, think about having static build up on carpet. I've heard of stories of people setting off primers in a primer tube due to the static build up. The jury may still be out on that, but the first step in reloading, like shooting, is safety.

Going to use two sheets of plywood as flooring right in front of the bench. Something to make cleanup easier and non permanent. I also need to make a wood chair or something to sit on. I have a static wrist band for when working on electronics. Touching bare metal occasionally helps also.

The tray mounted under the trimmer is a great idea! I think I'll be pulling mine apart to do the same thing.

These are all nice benches but I have a question. Is anyone concerned with leaving there supplies in the open (powder, dies, etc) above or under their bench. My reloading setup is in my garage and I often leave my garage door open and am just not comfortable with prying eyes.

Why not? Have the Antis convinced you that there's something wrong about owning guns? If you think that you're neighbors have bought into that narrative, then it's up to you to change the narrative and take control of the message about responsible gun ownership.

Why would you want to advertise to the world that there is or there could be something worth stealing?

Yeah, my stuff is the garage as well. I put up some of the office cubical walls around it to keep those prying eyes off my stuff.
The cubical walls leave open space above 7 feet to help keep the temperature even, not enclosed enough to make it stuffy either.
I DO NOT want anyone to know what I have, it's none of their business and I don't want to get ripped off, or even an attempt....not because of 'antis'.

This is actually a good question. I keep my press covered when not in use. Anytime we open the garage, you wouldn't see any of my stuff or the press. You'd have to look real hard and recognize the Dillon Blue peeking out from underneath the box. And, unless I'm working on my car, my garage door is shut. Occasionally I'll crack it open a foot or so to let the cool air in when I'm reloading.

I do it for the same reasons as you. I don't want anyone to know that I have guns. That would make me a target for their 'friends' to come in when I'm not here. Or heck, even when I AM here. (Both me and the wife are strapped 100% of the time though). Plus, I'm in a anti-gun East Bay/Contra Costa. Pot heads have more rights than a gun owner.

And, I know that there must be a lot of people who feel the same way. I see the insides of houses and garages all the time for work. I have yet to see a reloading press out in the open. I've seen gun safes, but even then, it's extremely rare.

Happy shooting and be safe!

I use t-track in a few woodworking tables and such and I'm going to say no. Not something I would or will put on my reloading bench. Really necessary on a router table or a drill press table, but also a source of constant cleaning.

They fill up with junk and really don't provide as much utility as you think. You end up mounting things in the same place time and again, reducing utility.

I would rather come up with a mounting method based on some 1 ft x 1 ft 3/4" MDF boards with 4 screws in the corners for most of my accessories and then a strong mount or inline fab mount for the press(es). I use an inline mount and have plates for my two presses.

You can put in threaded brass inserts in a few places for the accessory mounts.

Currently, my "temporary" reloading bench is a spare woodworking bench made from salvaged 4x12 lumber (very heavy). I share it with multiple activities. I just drill where ever I want as I don't care. Future bench (in Tennessee) will be a bit more sophisticated.

I actually did a t-track setup but only on half the bench. Similar idea with the 1 x 1 and a inline fab riser. The tracks do fill up with residual powder and what not but it's not that bad to clean. Figured whenever I needed the space I could remove the mount and use the t-tracks with clamps to hold down things if I needed another set of hands. So far it's worked out well.

There is a fair amount of reports on this. I read more then one story on CalGuns that talks about people that have had static charge set off a tube of primers, and a couple of them stated that they almost lost fingers... If you are going to load in a room with carpet, go to a place and get a anti static mat that will keep you safe...

I keep mine covered also. Two reason, my neighbors do not need to see my reloading set up. As small as it is. Also I keep it covered to keep the dust and dirt off of it. I live on a corner, next to a really busy road. Do not need anymore dust then I already have...

Why would static electricity set off loose primers but not loaded rounds?

All this work is because I got a rock crusher master reload kit for christmas.

DAY 1
Project Reload/Helicopter bench.

Intro:
My new Powder room/RC heli room is also the wifes Office. Becase of this just a normal work bench won't cut it.

The top base is 1"1/8 ply.
The finish top is Lumber Liquidators 2 1/2" Utility Oak flooring @ .99 cents square foot.

Glued up using Gorilla Wood glue and 1.5 inch 15 ga finish nails.

I used a furnture clamp to convince every one Into position before I nailed it home.

Once it Dries I will trim it and run the grinder over the joints and distress it.

Stay Tuned...

This is my favorite place in the house, I spend more time here then my living room! I do have all of my presses mounted on a hardwood “T’s” and then I can mount it in my vice, this works great even with my Dillon Progressive, and we all need a good vice on a workbench.
