Default Reloading Bench Photos

I'll start it off, but I don't want to be the only bench on this thread. These kind of threads are great for people just starting out to get an idea of how everyone's setup differs.

I've posted pics before, but for a dedicated thread here it is.
Bought used and modified for re-loading. Less than $100 invested in bench itself, very sturdy!

I don't have space for a dedicated reloading area.
So I use a Black & Decker Workmate bench with a plywood top clamped down.
The top has holes drilled where I bolt my press and powder measure.



Every time I want to reload, I drag everything out and set it all up.
When I'm done, I stow the bench in the garage and all my equipment and components in a wooden chest.

well after many years of doing my gun work and reloading in the garage, a spare bedroom and the kitchen table, i bought a 10x14 storage shed earlier this year and am slowly turning it into what i want for reloading and working on guns. still a work in progress. but here it is as of now.

Excellent stuff here folks!! IF i get around to it today after watching my Lions play, i might go down and snap some shots....i am in the process of reorganizing/cleaning my area so its kinda trashed...and it certainly isnt anything to brag about like some of these setups.

Gordo, i am extremely jealous...that is too cool!! I want one!!

Axxe, I would like to do something like that myself. Or just dedicate an area in the garage. But up here, cold damp winters are an issue and considering i heat my garage in the winter with a 35K propane fired salamander the moisture becomes even more of an issue.

Lon, looks like you're lucky enough to have a dedicated room, too sweet.

Oly, i think i might just have build something like what you have there.

Last but certainly not least, Jetgirl. Hang in there. In time you'll have a nice set up. Really it doesnt take a ton of room to dedicate to a reloading space, all you need is a corner and small bench. Wait 'till you see my hole in the wall reloading room. On a side note, being from Fort Waste, where do you get your components and such?
