    New to me reloading.work bench

    New house equals a new reloading bench/workbench. This is 12 ft long. Left half has been turned into my reloading bench. Plenty of storage space to.
    Will update when it is completed.Click image for larger version.

    I can only dream about even a 6-foot piece of bench as a reloading workspace. Currently, my reloading bench is 28" wide.

    Good luck with the set-up, looks like a nice space.

    lights, man, you need some lights.
    that looks like a real nice bench set up.
    it's all an educated guess,,,, till the trigger is pulled.

    Very very nice. Glad you have the room for a nice sized reloading bench. The stero is a major plus! Good music while reloading makes good Ammo ! Like R5R mensioned lights and maybe a magnifier lamp too.
    I'm jelious. All the best. Congrats on the new home and new reloading bench
    Stay safe,
    Mike

    More horizontal space= more junk left out, don't ask how I know

    Congrats on your new bench!

    Agree,horizontal space is like candy to a kid for it's uncontrollable ability to get cluttered.Raised in WW'ing shops,have had my own very big pro shop for 40 years.Learn to control the clutter!!Go vertical with storage.On a std 24" depth benchtop,start looking for something with drawers to go across the back 8 or so inches.Cubbies/pigeon holes....something across the back.Good luck with your new house/bench.Looks very inviting.

    Consider a quick-change mount from Inline Fabrication!

    Like many things in reloading Inline Fabrication is an addiction. I know, I just ordered one of their primer catchers for my Rock Chucker. Nice bench, I may need to start some upgrades to keep up with you fellows.

    Really nice set up .am a little envious. I made a 7 foot bench out of old post from car port but it is not as nice as your set up. Happy loading.
