    You should be the expert as to how the top end reloaders work. Which one is the best? I am impressed.......OH! And nice bench, too. But, a little short.

    Show off! Just kiding, it is cool.


    I'm just now building mine and will start with a mere MEC Jr. At 6'4", I built mine much taller 40" where I could either stand comfortably, or sit my buttocks on the adjustable bar stool I bought.


    Nice job with picture and bench.

    shot410ga, I'm only 4'22" and way too lazy to stand up and load shells. The bench is 32" high and I sit on a stool made to match the bench. It's visible on the left side of the picture. As for the best loader it's the Spolar no doubt about it. See the Spolar opinion thread.

    Ditto on the drooling!!! Very nice and most impressive. By the way, is that 25lb of Nitro the old formulation? Got any more?

    John, No sorry I have no more of the Nitro 100. Someone gave me that cardboard container. I have an elbow of plastic electrical conduit under the bench that the loaded shells from the P.W.loader eject into the old powder container. They come out the side where the cardboard container is setting.

    As was said above, nice looking bench! Does the "National Reloading Manufacturers Association" have a website where these plans are available.

    Thanks

    How come I don't see a vacuum cleaner in these photos? I must be the only one who needs one.

    ALF-99 Thanks for all of the good ideas! I'm also wondering where you got the wad holders and I also wonder what the other side of the room looks like. Very nice setup and I am stealing ideas as we speak.

    Shoot safe, John
