The tracks are just the plastic slide tracks you can find at any hardware store.
It looked too familiar too be a coincidence. Nice job on scaling it down.
I was not able to find the plastic track......

Thanks for the pics on the front edge. I find that my RCBS mounting holes are aligned with the edge of the vertical 2x4 apron. So... this means lag bolts instead of through bolts. I may double the area (2x4 in front of apron) to accomodate through bolts.

Edit: Oh... I like that you hold the tolerence on 2x4's to 1/64"

I think I got the track at either Lowe's or Home Depot.

The bolt holes on my press are in the center of the 2X4 on mine. I thought about thru bolting with 6" bolts, but the 4 1/2" lags I used have worked fine.With yours lining up at the edge, the double support is probably the way to go.

By the way, I usually hold tolerances to the .001 ", but I banged this together in one day so my standards slipped a little.

New guy here. Really enjoyed looking at all the benches and gun rooms. If I can figure it out I'll attach some pictures of mine. Both my reloading room and my gun room have been modified since these pictures were taken. It's always work in progress.

Wow that is sweet!!!

I wish I had that kind of space.
Of course if I had that kind of inventory, I would make the space for it somehow.

Actually I've been retired for the past 8 years. Before that I worked for a living. But I've found that people can afford what's important to them. And it isn't so much about what I do(or did) as about what I don't do...

I don't smoke.
I don't drink (very little).
I don't drive a fancy car.
I don't own a fancy house (moderate, comfortable, and paid for).
I don't eat in fancy restaurants.
I don't take expensive vacations.
I don't golf.
I don't bowl.

Basically it comes down to what you're willing to give up in order to get what you desire. Also, while I've always had a strong interest in firearms and reloading, and have always had a selection of firearms, the bulk of what I now own have been purchased in more recent years AFTER our house was paid for and our daughter was through college. Priorities are necessary and family definitely comes first.
