Dillon 1050 0n a 46 inch mobile work bench

Recommended Posts

I was wanting to put a 1050(mark 7 will come later) on a 46 inch  work bench in the middle of a room kinda like a island concept. but was a little concerned with the machine moving has anybody tried this my gut says as long at the bench is locked in place it would be fine but I just wanted to see what others think about it any pictures would be great help thanks for the help

bolt the bench to the floor. other than that, its going to have more to do with how the bench is built whether it moves or not.

The mobile bench is a 46 inch bench with drawers and a wooden top and lockable wheels, weights about 190 pounds not including what I put in it.

I agree with the above, should be bolted down and bench should be solid.  Just my opinion but I believe the bench as well as the machine should be level.

The key to having a multitude of problems with any progressive loader is for it to be unsteady.  An unbolted bench is a surefire recipe for head aches an woes, not to mention inconsistent ammo.

I’m using a Husky 10 drawer tool chest with one cabinet door and 6 wheels.

It has at least 800 pounds of equipment/supplies in it if not more.

Projectiles are in the bottom drawer.

IIRC, it is rated for 2700 lbs.

 

Three Dillons bolted to the top.  

 

I can barely get it to start moving with the wheels unlocked.  

 

If your concrete floor is level and flat like mine is, you won’t have any issues with vibration or movement.
