    I am still finding out what I need and what is not available (which I have to fabricate). The biggest lack of something that I have seen so far is money. So, I wish somebody made..................... a money mold to cast money from WWs.

    A real nice reloading bench in kit form, just for reloaders with add on capability, not one of those cheap benches in a box.

    I think that would be nice but they would be so expensive that not many would be purchased. Things with real wood that are built well are few and far between and if you do find them they are expensive. That is why many build there own from plans or wing it lol.

    But if one wishes to be honest even if the kit did seem expensive when one takes into account there time and the cost of the wood which is not cheap now by the way to build there own bench they would save money on a good kit bench.

    I got real lucky. As I was by my local SEARS store and they had a couple of Wood wood working tables that they were closing out. And picked one up for 100.00 out the door. And then put a solid core Door on top that is 84 by 32. Works great.

    .............Holy cats! I haven't seen that much available benchtop since I don't remember when You could set 3-4 DOZEN coffee cups down on that. And look at THAT, there is actually some FLOOR in your picture! Just wait though, you WILL eventually get enough stuff sitting around that you'll finally generate that inter-dimensional warp field that exists down at the bottom of most well used work-reloading benches.

    I swear there are some that if a bowling ball rolled off the top you'd hear it hit the floor, but that would be the end of it. You wouldn't find it again on a bet. If you have such and you're attuned, while standing there you can feel it sucking at the toes of your PF Flyers.

    Buckshot well my Garage looks like a Tornado Twister hit it lol. Just too much stuff lol. And have too many hobbies lol. But I am going to give up a couple lol. Ok more than a couple lol. As I like to load and play with stuff that goes BANG lol. But my other hobbie I will keep as long as I am able as I do like to build stuff. So my other project is a 73 Corvette that I am rebuilding the whole driveline along with upgrades. But it is slow as money is tite. So till I can purchase more parts I am doing some shooting and reloading.

    I swear there is not one part on a Corvette under $100.oo lol. Or sure seems that way lol.

    Hey Skeeter, Thanks for running across my site! Over the past to years our reload benches have been evolving. We have been building these benches for technical schools and many other folks. We recently received an order from Richard Gallagher who is the owner of Galco leather. If anyone has any suggestion I'd love to hear them. We are currently taking our Gardeners Bench and turning it into a reload bench as well! Stay tuned, in a few weeks we'll have that one online.

    Again, Thanks

    John

    It won't be cast iron but an RCBS ladle can be drilled and tapped to make it left handed. I have seen cast iron ladels with spouts on both sides.

    I would shoot my auto's more if someone made a good functional brass catcher that would attach, say to the bottom of a magazine, or clip to the forearm. I truly hate picking up brass, especially at a public range with everyone stepping on them and getting them mixed up. I like MY brass back cause I know their history.

    That's a good idea. How about a short piece of pipe, maybe 2" diameter, maybe 1" or so long? Stand it on end under the spout, there should be enough room for the mold to clear it, and the drips should all stay inside the pipe. My drip-o-matic leaves little teardrops of lead everywhere from the drip splashes. Gonna have to try this next time, thanks for the idea.

    Here's something I saw some reloaders doing to help ID their brass (commercial or reloads)...

    While still in a packaging tray, give the backsides a light wipe (removes excess lube) and run a Sharpie marker (multiple folks shooting the same caliper/headstamp use different colors) down the centers across the headstamps. The mark the won't affect anything and will allow you to easily ID your brass from rest.

    The Giant red sharpe

    I am with caver dave on the sharpe. All my brass is marked with a red line down the center. A few of the guys at the range started marking their brass with black marks after they saw me picking up brass and saying no, no, no, mine, no. Thats when they undersud the marks.

    Hey Dave, I'm already marking the brass, but being lazy I was looking to eliminate the 'hunt' so as to have more quality time at the range. I have a plastic catcher for my 1911 made by E & L Mfg. Riddle Or. (541) 874-2137 that works well, but only fits 1911's without the ambidextrous safety, and it's the only one that fits a handgun, (1911's only). The problem with it is that there is just a very small gap between the catcher and the slide to sight through.
