    Yikes, I didn't know it was a contest! I see a lot of character and good times on each of the benches and in each of the rooms in this post. I would be a happy camper in any of them! I mean, I started with the Lee rock and stick loader and many a time had to be told to get that mess off the kitchen table so dinner could be served. Guess what, I still have those Loaders and still have to be told to "MOVE IT BUSTER"!

    It wasn't a contest, but you win anyway. Really sweet setup.

    The sewing machine kept you in it for a long time, but Ranch Dog edged you. The loading room with bunks and bath was nice. But then he posts he has wireless internet at his covered shooting benches right outside the door. You wanna run with the Ranch Dog, you gotta run fast!

    Don't feel bad. I was all proud of my crapper down in the basement till I saw how the big boys did it.

    do you guys see any benefits from loading on a metal table? Id think it would be more ridgid.

    I will not post a pic of my loading and repair area. I will say this, while looking for a misplaced beretta 22 I decided to clean up a bit. Didn't find the 22 but did find a 1000 shot gun primers and a 1000 large rifle primers I didn't know I had. I found the 22 later in the day in my outbuilding by the riding lawn mower. Jim

    You need a heavy table with a rigid top, it doesn't matter what it's made of.

    Good morning Pat,

    (Sorry about the hijack)

    Solar power has always facinated me. Do you have any links on the type of setup you use?

    Thanks in advance,

    Robert

    I admit it's kind of gotten out of hand. The original bench (under the RCBS press) was made by welding scaled-up boiler pipes together and carriage-bolting heavy wood planks where needed. The nice thing is the operator (me) sits on the same bench he loads with, so the bench doesn't move regardless of the exertion.

    At the bench along the wall (foreground), I sit on a Harbor Freight wheeled stool and refrain from doing any heavy-duty case forming or swaging. But short of that, for most loading or boolit sizing operations the tools can be attached to 2" x 6" planks and C-clamped to wood benches. When something else needs the space, they are removed until needed again.

    The grabber has been replaced by the big sizer, and currently resides on a shelf in the basement.

    Yes sir, although I picked it up at a local "Big Lots" for @$12. It is stable and has worked well.

    It doesn't get taken down and put back up very often, so that might be a consideration for your intended applications.
