    Who has experience with one of these and what do you think. Do they hold the machine secure through a good amount of use.Any problems with them? Any and all thoughts would be greatly appreciated. Thank you all.

    You could probably make your own alot cheaper and better by being creative with a few supplies from Home Depot or Lowe's. A small home project if your into that type of stuff.

    That's it jhunts. My only concern was the reloader moving in the jig at all.As for making one , all it is is a flat plate with rails. The rails are the issue. Finding that formed rail heavy enough to work as well as the Mec jig. If anyone has made a jig I would love to see pictures and where the materials were found.

    I use one three months out of the year. Great for traveling when you don't have a work bench where your staying (and not being able to drill holes anyway if renting and they had one).

    I attach it to a piece of 3/4 inch plywood.

    The plywood goes on the top of a small folding portable work table that I travel with. The table is to small for both the reloader, a bag of wads, shells and a basket; so came up with the plywood cut to size to meet my needs. Flush in the front and back, wider on the sides.

    Picked up the table at Home Depot a few years back. I bolt the plywood to the table.

    Love the one I have. Works great for the 9000 and then can swap to the 600 JR

    I have used one of these for about a year. I needed to make room for other things on my reloading bench and this allows me to switch from several MEC presses and store the others when not in use. It holds the presess very tightly. I highly recommend it for anyone that has limited space for your reloaders. Bob
