This is my mutli purpose bench. But it is easy to see what gets the most time. All of the ammo cans are full. Otherwise I would have a lot less brass and bullets. I have about 15 different bullets molds and 2 melting pots.

I've pretty much used up most of the current bench space on these. I'm going to get another bench in the Fall. I'm thinking of setting up a Dillon Super 1050 in .223 with carbide dies. The wife and I are going through enough .223 / 5.56 MM to make it a plausible investment. A co worker friend of mine has one, and after watching him knock out .223 with it, I really give serious thought to one.

Thats a nice set up there Billt.. I would love to have the super 1050..

The one drawback is only a one year warranty on the 1050. I can crank em out pretty fast on the XL650 and it has the lifetime no BS warranty. The greatest advantage on the 1050 is the swage function for .223 brass. I get real sick of doing them on the super swage 600. Plus caliber conversions are a lot more money

Figured it was time I built my own bench in my workshop. I've always used my dad's gear at his house. I'll still go to his house to load handgun rounds on his progressive press (as an excuse just to hang out with him and get out of the house away from the wife and kid...and powder and primers are free at his house ) So, I just picked up a single stage Lee since all I'll be loading is .223 and .308.

I've got less than $25 out-of-pocket in the bench. All the framing and plywood top I had left over from when I built my workshop several years ago. And the pegboard is from a workbench I no longer use. All I had to buy was the light, an 8'x1"x6" for the light frame, an 8' piece of outer edge moulding to trim the bench top (I hate it when things roll of your work area) and the plywood cover which is a piece of masonite the local Lowes sold me as scrap for 50¢.

All I have left is making a surface for the bottom shelf frame of the bench and finding a 32" bar stool.




*edit to add*
I was going back through all the pictures of benches in this thread and lol'd at this...

It's too short. My feet hang way off, but I've managed a few good naps.

I like the looks of the light frame. It certainly cuts down on direct light from the photographers point of view. Are there any baffles or screens used for diffusing , or is it just a 'bare' shop light.

Still trying to figure out the benchtop field area. Is this plywood, masonite or a laminated flooring.

When I built mine, the standard plan was calling for plywood, that's the way I did it, Put on several coats of poly urethane to seal and protect.

After seeing your pic, the look of laminated flooring seems attractive and functional. Makes me think a retrofit could be in my future.

No diffuser, just a plain $14 48" shop light from Lowes.

The top is masonite with fake laminate flooring print. You can see a few white stripes in the print, so Lowes sold me the whole 4'x8' sheet for 50¢ as scrap because of the lines. All I did was cut it to fit, glue it down, and trim it with outer edge.

I was planning on using laminate flooring as my top, but didn't have enough pieces left from my kitchen to entirely cover the top. And I wasn't gonna pay $76 for another box of flooring to do it. I'm OCD but not crazy.
