Bumping this old thread for new ideas.


I have a vice and some reloading equipment with nowhere to put it. Sooner than later I will epoxy my garage floor and then build a bench.

Show me what works for you. Within reason, what do you wish you had? What do you think you couldn’t live without? What did you learn from your mistakes?

Thanks!
Photo copying load data like I did when using several different manuals reduces needed space. I wish that I had bought HD storage, because the weight adds up and started to buckle the cabinet. Toolhead stand price from Dillon was going to be costly, so I used PVC and dowel rods for stands. Depending on how many different cartridges, reload equipment, space and future investments I'm pretty good with space organization. Will you use the same space for gun cleaning, customizing and/or projects (non gun related)? LED lighting reduces heat and makes it better to work (for me at least).

I just got started with reloaded about a yr or so ago.
Im using a single stage RCBS and currently do 39/357 40 45 and 45LC.
Havent gone to long guns yet.

The table is hooked to the wall on the studs with some 8in shelf brackets. The press is bolted through the table.

Solid and in where AC/Heat are.

Have to turn off ceiling fan however when scale comes out.

I can see I got a long way to go to get where some of y’all are.

I’ve down sized to about 1/4 of what I had ten years ago. I keep just enough to load for the current herd.
Though I had some dies and components for pistol cartridges I never loaded for them. Seemed a waste of time since handgun ammo was cheap. Now this is when 50 rounds of 44 special, 44 mag and 45 Colt was $14-$15 and others were obviously cheaper.
Besides the cost I load on a single stage and I like my fingers.
I currently load for.

Not where you are
Enjoy the journey !

Im really enjoying it so far.
Great stress reliever with the benefit of ammo for range time.

I shot 50 38 and 25 357 and 30 45acp reloads of mine yesterday. All went bang and no more or less accurate than factory ammo far as I can tell.

I do plan to use the bench for all sorts of projects. Anything that needs tinkering can be done there instead of the kitchen table or island.
