I am limited with my reloading set up also, I ended up screwing my press to a 4x4 block then I was able to clamp it to the kitchen counter. It serves it's purpuse now.

I load in the garage also BUT when i purchased my home the previous owner had made a sewing room for the wife by walling the garage in half and opening a door way into the room.
So now the "gun room" stays almost the temp as the basement in the 60 degree range the perfect temp for loading my ammo.

Reload in the kitchen? My wife would really like that.
Thats why the garage is my only option.

It was 5 below outside a week ago and I can get the garage to about 40.
My concern mainly is the temp swings. Is it best to store the components in the garage at 30-40 degrees in the winter, or store them in the house and take them to the garage to do the loading.

Re: Reloading in the garage??

I reloaded in the garage and was not a pleasant experience. Was cold, my press started to rust, and it just was not a good deal. You could try a mobile set up that would work. Your wife should understand that it is your house also. My wife would never tell me what I can do in my own home, and I would not tell her. There are no bosses in our house, it is a mutual agreement.

I load in the barn. Only reason is that I have no room in my tiny 19 century farm house. The only problem I have ever had to worry about is rust, keep your gear clean and you will have no problems.

You are a lucky man, My wife is fairly understanding to my hobbies except for when I was cleaning rifles in "my room" and knocked over a bottle of cleaning solvent on the carpet.
after that the garage has become MY room. (penalty box)
There are no bosses in my house either, I just do what she says. LOL

Re: Reloading in the garage??

kenny and mr mrbofus are right I had a great place in my garage unheated but it was with my
BRIDGPORT mill and other tools and it rusted all to hell and I destroide my beams.
if you went outside your loads would be in question, I have no understanding why any wife would have
a problem. your are not screwing around and not at the bars no drugs and as a home with you she should count her blessings.
that last quote was from my wife and both of my daughters.

Am I right guys?
