Reloading Benches

Recommended Posts

Seeing his does make me feel better, and restores my faith that every man out there doesn't have Martha Stewart as a mate.

Sheesh, a (work-)room with a VIEW, even!! Look at all that greenery outside the window! :P

Looks a little a couple of shooters' garages I've had the pleasure of seeing, though... ;)

This thread has been around long enough that I was able to build my new benches for my second 650 and tumbler.

I cleaned it for the picture. It is usually a little dirtier.

My reloading mini-bench got done and the SDB mounted late yesterday. Will shoot the final pic of it later today and photos back perhaps at end-of-week. What with a 3-day string of 100+ degree weather, it's been too @!#&% hot to run about in the car gettin' things done... (like going to the photo lab too many times)(Bear in mind I have no A/C in the car and it got up to 120 in the car yesterday. I can only take about 15 minutes of that before passing out.)

ANYWAYYYYYY... we have a bench!!!! :D

Complete with window and TV. Hmmm... nice big tumbler. (Are the Dillons really quieter than some of the others...?)

SL,

I wish... I took the advice of others and got a timer and now the tumbling is done while I am sleeping. :D It does a lot of brass at once and I found it on eBay for the cost of the small one. B) My brother-in-law had to keep up with the war, so a TV got hooked up in the shop. I am not much for watching TV except for reviewing tapes on competitions. :rolleyes:

Thanks to this post I did not spend the weekend practicing and shooting a match as I had hoped. But NOoo, I had to show this thread to my wife. She saw how nice some of your benches are, and the others...

The next thing I get the bums rush and find myself first at Home Depot then back home in an NBC gas mask installing insulation. This in preparation of the paneling and shelving I have to install this week, before the rubber floor arrives. Did I tell you that I must install that too?.

I Was just Fine!

Thanks you guys!! <_<

My bench. It's amazing how this can take on the appearance of being somewhat tidy (without photoshop). At least it's not intentionally decieving.

novembers trivia: How many presses are actually on GsT's bench, oh and what brand, model, and what caliber are we loading on that one?

And now for a contrasting point of view.

It's dark, dirty, and dungeon-like. The "other" press is a Ponsness Warren 850B.

Old Chelsea girl is not much of a watchdog, but she is a real sweetheart.

That ain't dirty! You need about a half inch of tumbler media and spent primers on the floor. Then it might qualify for dirty. :)

There are 7 presses on the bench, L to R: Redding T7(.308, .338Lapua), Lyman T-MagII(.50AE, .357,.38), Dillon 650(.308,.223,.40S&W), Dillon 1050(.45), RCBS Rockchucker(Everything!!), Dillon SL900(12ga.), Hollywood Sr.(.50BMG).

The bench is welded up from 2"x4" rectangular steel tubing. It's 3' deep, but the first 12" is 3/8" steel plate - makes for a nice rigid bench. (The rear of the bench is just a melamine plank for collecting dust, errant primers, et. al.
