    After adding a Dillon RL550b with a Strong mount and bullet tray to a bench with an RCBS RS5 press things got a little cramped. I need the bench to work on guns, chainsaws and lawn equipment. So I decided to add as much space as I could to the bench another 2' should do it. I went from a 2x4' bench to a now 2x6' bench I took the over head off and I am going to attach the peg board to the wall behind the bench I need to go and get 2 more outlets so I have power at the bench. the top is going to be 2 5/8" thick sheets of plywood with a covering. Here are a few pics of it midway threw. The bottom will get 2 sheets of 3/4" OSB with a covering on it as well. I was going to screw it to the wall studs but after getting the top on it was plenty heavy.

    Well I mounted the Dillon Last night. IT now sits where the yellow eyeball burning drop light sits. I moved it back far enough that I have some room on the front and the handle does not hit the bench.
