    The 'correct' height for any press is high enough you can fully depress the handle without bending over; your back will thank you.

    I built my bench so the worktop is 45" high. I always stand when handloading and working at this height is real freindly on the neck and back.

    Hey Flash hole That is a nice set up. Loooks real clean to. Thats what I needed to see. I wanted thing so I wasn't looking down or bent over to see what the heck I'm doing. I think what I'm going to do is buy a heavy duty trailer Jack and bolt the base to the floor and weld square steel tubing with a plate on it that way I can adjust if I'm sitting or standing.:rolleyes:

    The barstool I have is plenty high to allow me to sit comfortably at the bench and work if I choose to sit.
