weird question....

Thinking about turning my little utility closet outside into a small reloading space...

With my hot water heater out there and tumbling etc would this pose a hazard ?

The tumbling wouldn't be much of a hazard. The tumbler could overheat, but that could happen in any room or with any appliance. The dust from the tumbler is best left for places like a garage. I wouldn't want powder and primers in close proximity to gas fired water heater left unattended. You could load in the closet and store the hazmat someplace else when not in use.

But there is another issue. Are you a man or a mouse? Reload in the dining room, it's your friggin house isn't it?

I haven't thought through the details but it seems to me that a simple bench would work IF the front legs were forward of the press. In other words, there needs to be a notch (could be nearly full width) that would set the press back such that there is no tendency to overturn.

I tend to stand (not sit) slightly to the left of the press centerline. As long as my body didn't collide with the bench, the notch should work fine.

Put a bottom shelf toward the rear and store a few thousand loaded rounds in ammo cans. That ought to do it!

Your going to raise your child in a utility closet? Or did you buy an overseas kid to raise as a butler?

Also the weather issue.
Is the exterior room big enough that you would be comfortable loading when its raining? Does it stay dry during a downpour, or is there moisture on the inside?
I had my reloading bench on the innermost portion of a large covered patio, and everthing which wasn't powder coated became oxidized, even aluminum parts. All rubber parts became brittle and cracked. Then I loaded for a while in a new 8x10 vinyl shed. Claustraphobic & not enough natural light. I say claim a bright corner of a room, put in a heavy duty, 2nd hand wood-topped office desk, and let it be that. If you don't like visitors gawking at "What's That Thing?" you can cover it w/ dustcover or bbq cover. So its not so front and center, I mounted the press on the side of a large office desk and its been working great. I can still use the desk for computer and paper work, and having all the drawers is nice. No clutter. 2nd hand office furniture places sell these for a reasonable price.

Door closes and seals up also has a lock on it

You don't have to bolt it to the floor if you screw it to the wall, but it was easy for me to do.
