Re: New reloading bench
Where are you putting it? If you have room and you can make it permanent, build it yourself from 2x4s and plywood and top it with Formica. You can usually find a cheap leftover at Home Depot or the like, and it cleans up easy and keeps things nice and easy to see. Tie the whole thing right into your studs.
Build a high shelf over top of it to hang some light bars from, and if you can get a tumbler on top that's a bonus. I also keep storage boxes, ammo boxes, etc up top
On the back wall, I mounted a small compartment organizer for odds and ends, bushings, priming accessories, shell holders, etc. I also put up some narrow shelves to hold die sets, calipers, tricklers, scales, etc.
Underneath my bench I stuck 4 two-drawer file cabinets for brass and bullets.
The length of the bench will depend on what you are going to mount. Mine is about 10ft, but I have both a single stage and progressive mounted, along with a powder throw on one end and room to measure, trim, prep, weigh, etc in the middle.
No matter how you set up, try to have:
Lots of light
Lots of storage/organization space
Enjoy your new hobby!
