Default Dillon xl 650 tool head stand

So since I didn't want to buy a stand for my other tool head why not make one. This was just the first one and will probably make revisions. It's just a basic stand also, I keep all the pins case plate and case guides in the box it came in. Also the tolerance on the middle shaft still needs some adjustment to get a little tighter.

I think this one just looks way cooler.

Anyone who wants the design to print on their own just PM me.

Would love to hear everyone's thoughts.

I bought a piece of 1 X 4 X 4ft and and 3 L brackets .
[ 3 because the studs in wall are on 16 inch centers ]
My mistake was on not allowing for the decapping pins .
I bent a couple .
1 X 2 cut into 4 inch pieces . They raise tool heads
I split a few of the 1 X 4 X 4ft boards , so plan on a
1 X 2 X 4ft as a back stop , drill clearance holes in it
and use finishing nails to 1 X 2's and drill a clearance
hole for each 1 X 2 in the 1 X 4 X 4ft boards . [ at
different spots so 1 X 4 X 4ft boards don't split ]
If you are like me [ 15 calibers and the bottle neck
rifles take 2 tool heads ] make the shelf as long as
you can .

Yea I think eventually as I start including more calibers I'll eventually make a sort of pull out shelf for the tool heads. There is a pretty cool one on ebay that holds up to 4 loaded tool heads but for 120 I think I'd rather make one myself. Any pictures of your setup?

Not sure this link works since Photobucket is doing some weird thing

I made 550b toolhead stands using wood, a dowel and a pvc pipe

No picture yet .
I keep meaning to take pictures of set up , but then stuff
comes up or I start moving things around . Right now I am
trying to move key machines and drill press to work table
but 2 nephews don't like . Key machines and drill press are
in a space about 6 feet by 4+ feet . load master , vibrators
, sonics , rotary and prep machine are on top of a 9 foot
cabinet / bench with grinder and pipe vise . now it is really
messed up with Christmas lights [ the male deer motor
broke and they no longer sell ] lights on 2 doe are out - etc .

My shell plates are in 2 racks [ the rack is for old zip drive
cartridge holder - I had to cut 3 inch holes in them , but the
shell plates fit . ]

Nice aftermarket toolhead, I did the same.

I actually bought a 3-toolhead stand for about $24:

That one is a lot nicer looking than mine , but at 25 a
pop and needing at least 5 , I will leave it [ the page ]
on computer . Maybe my nephews will see it for Xmas
They always check emails / other stuff when they come
to reload .
Not sure if the loadmaster shell plates would fit . They
are kind of fat .
I like the way you I D dies . I use 1 inch PVC pipe
couplings and label
