    Default Reloading Bench Pic's

    Just about got me Bench where I want it (Still mising a chrono. and a electronic scale though). So I thought I'd post a few pic's since seeing a few on this forum helped me build mine.

    Smile nice!

    Congrats on the beautiful bench. I wish mine looked that neat. Somehow I gotta clean off the fishing gear and tools everytime I want to use it. Ya just cant have enough garage space......

    Default Nice angle

    Thought I'd bump this from the Archives as it looks sooo nice

    Love that Partner press set at an angle like that, this is one of the nicest setups I've seen. Is the Trimmer on a portable board for a reason, you don't bring that into the living room do you

    Curious tho as it is from '08 picture, what does it look like now? still clear of junk?

    Nice Job

    Default Bench Surface?

    CZ,
    What is the bench surface made of? It kind of looks like particle board but I didn't know they made it that thick. I think I have the same rack/bench system that I have been planning to use as a reloading bench. I long since lost or reused the shelves that came with it and have been trying to figure out what I can use that is beefy enough to mount a press.

    I don't know if you caught that those pictures were from two years ago, so I don't know if that person is following the thread any more.

    But to answer your question. I can tell from the pic. that he used a solid core wood door and cut a notch out of it. That's why the one part sticks out to the left. The cores on those doors are in fact particle board with hardwood faces. Solid doors make excelent bench/table tops. They are HEAVY though.

    Thanks for the tip. I already have a couple of responses to an ad on craigslist about some solid core doors.

    It's no wonder you and Mike Cyrus get along so well. His bench looks just like that.

    After many conversations with Mike and all the projects he seems to have going on I would imagine his bench would be full to say the least.

    Default Still Clean, but...

    Mine's still somewhat organized and you can actually still see the bench top....

    I'm only three months in and loading for one rifle. So it probably won't last long. The organization I mean
    Built for $50 or so including the scrap pile out back for lumber, just beefed up an existing bench a bit,

    and yes, as you can see, I already had to move the Press over a bit to the right
    It's not as heavy duty as some of these and does a little flexing when FL sizing but seems to work fine and,

    Hey, it's still clean.... of course I'm out there every night these days,

    and then the boat season is just starting, so here come the Raw Water pump overhaul projects....



    I'll try to get out to Grampa's house soon and post a pic of his 50 yr old Reloading shop, it's pretty intense

    Default All finished up.

    I posted this to another thread titled ABC's of Reloading Table. Then, it didnt have the finishing touches on it and no gear. Here it is with everything on it.

    I think I even said something to the effect of: Reloading will save money over time Ha Ha, well lets just say, once you get started there is always another widget to purchase!

    Here's two pics of my general work bench turned reloading bench. It works well for my needs at the current time. When or if I move I will build the mother load bench of all time. I have plenty of ideas that will make my life much easier.

    Default Serious

    Man, that's some serious reloading you are into there, how many rifles, etc.?

    Very impressive, the organization, scares the Heck outta me to think I may go that far tho

    Even the spokes on your bike are clean!

    Speaking of CZ... I still have a book of his and an ammo box from when he taught me the basics in his garage... never heard from him again... sure would like to return that stuff if any one has a contact...

    Thanks
