    Joebl, cut, glue, and screw together 3 or 4" PVC pipe and fittings so that the shell drops just a few inches then slides down a sloping run of pipe to a cardboard box. This works quite well for me.

    The only part that needs threaded ends is where it goes through the desk or bench top so the assembly can be taken apart in a move......breakemall....Bob Dodd

    That pipe looks good. All I did on my PW2000 was the hole and glued a small wood strip around it about 3/4 x 1". Nothing pretty but it works. Shoot well and often, Bob

    I have the PW and used to have the above type with a 366 worked well. But with PW shells bounce off that ramp like you state and will sometimes miss. Easy solution take a oil funnel and cut larger hole in bench. No miss's after that.

    I have another solution. I took 2 small pieces of 4x4 and 2 same length pieces of 2x6. I screwed the 2x6 to the 4x4 them put each under the press one on each side. I then bolted the 2x6 to the bench. Now the press is about 5 3/4 inches higher and I put a plastic tote tub behind the press to catch the shells as they come out of the press. It will hold about 300 before I have to empty it and I like the press being higher. I can keep small tools, allen wrenches, etc under the press. Good luck with your solution.randy

    I use a 3x4 PVC reducer and cut out a opening in the 4" section. Face the opening to wards the reloader and shell slide down the chute into a box under neath.

    I removed the metal 'springboard' ramp and replaced it with a longer one made of a piece of 1.5 inch PVC that I cut in half. I cut a hole in my loading bench and built a large drawer on full extension slides that is underneath the hole in the bench top. The drawer can hold over 800 rounds. I also mounted my P&W on a small cookie sheet tray to collect powder & shot when I screw up. It works great.

    Thanks Whiz,
    I will be setting up my reloader from the pictures you posted. That is just what I was looking for.
    Thanks again
