    Loading bench pics

    I finally cleaned off the benches to the point that I wasnt embarrased to take a few pics. I'm hoping to do the same with my casting bench in the utility barn (As soon as I can find it again) Here's the link to the pic's If anyone is interested in takin' a look

    P.S. it's a work in progress that will never end (at least I hope not!)

    Sundogg, You got to do somethin' with that setup, entirely too much clean unclutered surface showing on all them benches, set a beer anywhere without movin' nothing. Really nice setup.

    Thanks Arkansas Packrat. It doesnt look like that too often. My casting bench (in my detached garage) is MIA. i'm hoping to find it again soon, since it's casting season now. (hopfullty cast several thousand of everything by spring) It's been so warm here in "the Burgh" that I havn't ebevn thought abought casting in a while. But since deer season is over, i'm ready. I usually reload all year, but mainly cast in the cold months. Although I tend to cast a few weekends in the summer at camp, just for the sport. its funny when the camp neighbors ask me "what the Hell are you doing". Seems to make it all worth while

    My bench was that uncluttered and organized.... about 9 years ago, when we moved here to north Texas from west Texas.
    Then I started using it.
    Been downhill ever since....

    This was my set up a couple of years ago. Since then it's become unorganized.

    My, that's purty. I like the fabricated strong mount for the RCBS press, too.

    Down here, we don't have dungeons. Have to do our deeds out in the light.

    I like the idea of the single stage strong mount too.

    The one in the pic is a Redding Big Boss press. The RCBS presses use a different primer setup.

    You guys are intirely to neat and clean. Target shooter is the only normal guy posting pitchers.
    Some where under my loading bench is a hundred rounds of 105mm and the gun to go with them, three BATF agents looking for it and and two of my hunting buddies helping them.
    It's always like Christmas when I go looking for something. I never find what I'm looking for but I find something I forgot that I had.

    Bench




    I just moved into a new place. My rifle bench is still a work in progress. My casting and shotgun press is in the garage. Tom.

    My reloading room looks just like targetshootr's--just different stuff in different places. I bought three identical hunting knifes for Christmas presents. I tied them together and put them somewhere in my reloading room. Came Christmas, I couldn't find them. A month later, I still can't find them. But by golly they're in there somewhere!

    An old kitchen counter on top of the cheapest undercounter cabinets at the home center. Backed it with a half sheet of plywood and a tube of construction adhesive for extra stiffening. It mounts the Pacific Super C that Grampa loaded on and my SDB. Lots of storage, easy clean surface and it took 20 minutes to make...

    Generally just open the window for venting in the summer, but I had to cob together a blower for winter use.

    CRS again!

    Good thing they are not snakes. Actually I commend you for remembering you have the knives even if you cannot find them. I buy stuff for some project down the road then get to the project and forget I have bought the stuff. I suffer through the project without because at that point I can afford the stuff then find the stuff later and think "dang that would have come in helpful".
