I have 7 presses set up and dies and bullet molds camped in the house and garage. I am always finding things that I never remember buying. I have piles of experiments never completed. And every experienced reloader knows. You never throw anything away regardless of how useless.

that reminds me i need to clean up my gun shed!

i'm currently rebuilding an older RCBS R5 press a guy was going to throw away. with some minor cleaning and some work, i'll end up with another press to use.

Like I said Axx a hand loader will never throw anything away. I have 3 old Lube and Sizers I was always going to send in for rebuild. There are old scales die parts and rusty old powder cans. Hell I cleaned up my reloading room one time. Gees, I found two Bird Dogs I had lost the year before.

I have an old Pacific press (I think : ) that hides under the bench-top. Right now it adds weight. but someday . .. just maybe, someday. .
naw, it'll sit there until the day I die.

I still have a friends RCBS 2000 auto-index progressive press set up here, but haven't loaded any of my own yet. maybe today.

I see you have veneered plywood. Did you apply a finish on top? If so,what?

I've decided my loading bench just isn't big enough. I don't only use it for reloading but I use it for all things firearms such as cleaning, mounting scopes and at the moment building an AR. Its 12' long but the powder measure, two presses and the sizer/lubricator take up a lot of real estate so its time to expand. Starting at the far end I'm going 12 more feet along the back wall. Time to get started.

I was just thinking, when I get this part of the bench finished I will already have two sides of a square. Hummmmmmmm, I wonder.

I'm a big fan of these cheap storage racks and bins from Menards. On sale you can pick them up for $15.00. I was tinkering today and thought I would bend up a bin bracket to attach near my press. While looking for sheet metal stock I found my wife's old license plates. They already had a perfect lip stamped in them. You might be a redneck if....

I like it. Did you use license plates to hold up them all? Because that's a lot of license plates.

It was time for a new signature. This is what you get.

No, the racks come with their own brackets. They can be wall mounted or stand alone like mine. I was too cheap to buy another rack system just for the brackets.
