    I'm interested in seeing what your reloading bench looks like. Can you guys post pics? The subject of building one comes up often enough, but no pics usually.

    How about it?

    Do a search on "bench". Then go back 1000 posts. A little ways up from the bottom. Bulge.

    Subject: Need new reloading bench- PW w/ Hydro
    From: skeet_man

    Finally upgrading from 4 9000gs (all 4 gauges) to a PW 800+ w/ hydraulic.

    Consequently, I need to find myself a new reloading bench. I'm presently working off a bench grinder stand, which was perfect for my 9000g, but won't have nearly enough space for the PW w/ the hydro.

    I don't really have the tools required to build much of a bench from scratch, nor do I want to invest alot of time or $ into it.

    I'm thinking about one of those 2x4 bench kits like the one that Cabelas sells. Seems pretty straightforward.

    Should I be worried about any torque that the hydraulic is going to impart into the bench? I don't want to build some flimsy piece of junk, but I also don't want to spend money unnecessarily on it either. The bench will be for the reloader, and thats about it.

    Home Depot has the kit for 58 bucks here: http://www.homedepot.com/h_d1/N-5yc1vZ1xil/R-100670800/h_d2/ProductDisplay?langId=-1&storeId=10051&catalogId=10053

    I thought the original thread was a great one. Nice to see how others are doing it. Actually picked up some nice tips, like the dog feeder for the wads!!!
    I say lets post the pics if you have them.

    Bench has a base built like a cabinet and a plywood top.

    P/W 800 Plus and AUTO-DRIVE are an awesome combination.

    I'm not through, just ran out of energy. It's functional, ignore the boxes though, I have a "system" for keeping hulls organized and I use 3 different hulls for 3 different loads so lots of boxes.

    I would agree with Ross, way to neat....do you have maids that come in? If I could figure out how to upload photo, I would show you a "working class" loading bench.

    Here is a picture of my re-loading area. It reminds me that I need to do a little "house keeping" of the area. The last use was a few days ago and I loaded 200 traploads using AA empties.
