Re: Post Your Reloading Bench Pictures

Here is my set up. Just finished it 4 days ago.

I took the easy way out and went to IKEA and bought a kitchen set up with 1.5" thick butcher block top.

Its 96" long.

Re: Post Your Reloading Bench Pictures

Great idea on adding a plate to help stiffen the top when mounting presses, etc.
I've seen this before when mounitng a vise to work bench.

Prebuilt cabinets! Wow... now that's a nice touch!

When are the rest of you gonna clean those benches off and get us some pics?

Re: Post Your Reloading Bench Pictures

here are a few pics of my bench . I welded a .250 thick plate on both ends of the pipe legs . tapcon screwed into the cement floor . and bolted the press through the top plate . the counter tops were odds and ends from lowes . it's nothing great but it is solid . Jim




this is my progressive . I got into shooting bullseye and couldn't keep up with my regular press . I only do pistol on it .

Nothing fancy here, but it works for me.
FYI, these pics are 3 years old. It's much messier right now.

The legs and frame are 4x4 and 2x4 construction and the upright surfaces are pegboard and they can extend the full width of the bench if you make the rear horizontal 2x4s extend that far. The table top is screwed to the frame with 3" sheetrock screws. My table top is 2' deep and 6' wide

Hello 4ked Horn,

I like the design of your bench, but am just wondering, is 2' deep enough?

Cheers.

Re: Post Your Reloading Bench Pictures

Here is my new set-up.



The top of my reloading bench is old bowling lanes. If you can find a bowling alley that is re-doing their lanes they usually give the stuff away. The center work tables are from Sam's Club.
