    Default Reloading Bench Photos

    I'm thinking about putting a new reloading bench together. My old one started out life as a kitchen table, modified it with some alterations, but it is still really just a table. Would like get some ideas from your benches (storage, press attachements etc), can you post pictures of your benches?

    Thanks

    Here's mine a couple of years ago. This is made up from the steel base of a computer typesetting
    system. I bolted some sides made out of panels from some other typesetting equipment. It must
    weigh a good two or three hundred pounds without anything on it so it is pretty steady. The nice
    part about the steel frame is that it has adjustable leveling feet so that contributes nicely to the
    stability of the setup.


    I also have a nice pdf of the NRMA reloading bench plans in a pdf file if you are interested. This is
    a pic I took from the web from someone who built it. My apologies to the owner for appropriating it.

    This is the setup I put together in my basement. I need to get a vise for the bench, but other then that it's been working pretty well for me.




    Amen!

    Very nice bench.
    Did it come with that top or did you tack down some mdf?

    This was in the place when I bought it (the bench, not the reloading stuff). Please excuse the mess:

    The NES REP system is about as ghey as Facebook

    Here's my setup. I built this bench about 30 years ago from the NRMA plans that The Boston Patriot mentioned a few posts above. I had access to a 6' piece of stone countertop from an old chemistry lab, so modified the plans a bit to use that instead of the plywood top. It's served me well and has even survived being disassembled and reassembled as part of two household moves. I've managed to outgrow the storage space in the bench, however.

    The bench came as a package from Lowes, but I replaced the cheap top with some mdf that I cut and mounted myself. Thought it was going to be a lot easier then it actually ended up being. I can't complain though because the bench doesn't budge when loading.

    Amen!

    Here is my home away from home. The pics aren't very good but you get the idea.



    I have a 650 and a 1050 with bullet feeder. (thanks John for making me buy this) The 1050 with K.I.S.S. feeder rules. If I start shooting limited again I will buy another 1050 and bullet feeder for .40 S&W.
