    A few pics of the reloading table I just finished building for my yet to arrive new Spolar reloader. I designed the plans on Google SketchUp and then built them over a couple of weekends.

    Here is a close up of the table top:

    Looks great. One suggestion - put an elevated edge around the top to contain the shot. Billy

    Nice setup Wass. A few questions on your upgrade.

    Where did you get the dimensions to pre-drill your table top prior to the reloader showing up? How long have you been pulling the handle on the MEC? I see a weathered MEC on your other table in the background.

    How long does it take for Spolar to deliver after ordering?

    Thank you.

    Tincanman-

    I got the dimensions to pre-drill the table from the folks at Spolar. They sell a paper layout template for $5.00 and I had them send it to me.

    I've been pulling the handle on that MEC in the background for about 24 years now. My oldest child is starting to get into trap shooting (13 year old daughter) this year. She is on my trap team for Spring League this year. With the extra need for more shells (and 2 more kids and my wife to hopefully shoot with me in the future), I decided to upgrade.

    I ordered my Spolar on Feb. 20th. At the time I was told it would take about 6 weeks. 6 weeks is up on Monday, so I suspect it won't be too much longer.

    I think the Spolar "time to deliver" depends on how back logged they are with orders. I saw another post where somebody said they really get backed up after the Grand.

    Doug-

    I responded to your PM. The google sketchup plans for the table or the shell/wad hoppers are available to anyone who wants them. Glad to see they can be of use to others.

    A food tray under the loader will save the shot and powder spills, I drill a hole in it and mount a can or bottle under the hole to catch it so I dont have to get it out of the tray, just pour it out of the bottle
