Mine looks like some amature made it with a handsaw, some 2x6, and sheetrock screws. It looks very "industrial" if it were in a converted loft. That it came out level, is one of my greatest achievements.

Level? Damn... and I spent all that money on custom 'square' bullet moulds. Wish I'd joined this forum earlier.

Wait a minute... aren't you a contractor? What the hell are you doing asking about buying benches... go buy some materials and custom build your own. Good grief... people hire you to do stuff like that!

It ain't a dialysis machine... no one is gonna live or die if it isn't perfect... we'll just make fun of you.

Exactly... I built a custom home 7 years ago and told the architect to leave the 5'' x 21' space below front porch open. These are 10" thick, steel reinforced, concrete foundation walls.

This is in the early phase of my portion of the project.

This is the (standing height) gunsmithing bench at 44", though it could be used as a reloading center.

Opposing wall at the other end. Bench height is 30-1/2".

About a year ago, I only needed 5,000 each of SP & LP. At the time, the prices were still at arond $22.50, but supply was spotty, so I ordered 5,000 SP and 5,000 LP from three different suppliers who had them on backorder along with a variety of powder. About a month after I ordered, all three suppliers started shipping at around the same time, so I have a "hoarded" three year supply.

I forgot... yea, those are Hornady .451" 185 gr XTP that were bonused with the press. That stuff's really 'spensive in loaded form.

On the loading bench, I used 3 sections of double laminated 2" x 6" lumber, with 1" plywood on top, and finished with 1/8" ABS.

I assume you've ordered a shim by now... I'm sure you need that rubber band to help hold your socks up.

After just seeing the first picture I thought that's where they locked you up at night and weekends.

I quickly realized I was mistaken... the walls aren't rubber lined.

I think Eric has a rule against posting pictures of yourself. I believe we should all rise as one and ban you from the forum.
