1050/Mark 7 - fasten bench to wall?

Recommended Posts

I've recently moved and haven't yet set up my reloading bench which at my former home was robustly fastened to the wall studs.  The bench is quite heavy and generally I have 200-300 lbs of bullets on the bottom shelf (below the bench).  Anyone running this setup on a standalone bench and if so have you noticed much vibration?  I'm inclined to fasten to the wall despite the trouble doing so just due to potential issues with the bullet feeder.

Can’t hurt in my opinion, other then putting holes in the wall. Being a machinist by trade I’m a fan for rigid set ups.

I capitulate!  I mount a 2x4 to the wall backed up by t-nuts.  Bolt the 2x4 to the bench, back the bench up to the wall, mark the 2x4 location, screw 2x4 into the studs and re-bolt bench to 2x4.  Never had a problem going through 150K rounds.  Just lazy.

Mount it to the wall! As previous posts have mentioned, why would you voluntarily introduce any error into your reloading from a non-secured bench? We already deal with enough variables as it is.
