    We're all moved in to the new house so I decided it was time to build a solid loading bench. Built outta 2x4's and 2x6's. Weighs quite a bit. Very sturdy. Got the press mounted to it so all that's left is to start loading!

    Now that's a bench. Good luck and happy reloading with it. It should outlast you.

    Good deal Savage. I built 1 back in the 90s that was a regular workbench out of 2x4s and had a 3/4" plywood top that weighed a lot and worked great for reloading,yours should be around a real long time.

    Thanks guys. There's over 50 feet of 2x4 in that thing. That weight will come in handy when loading .30/06

    Hah. You got that right. The bench I use was not intended to be a loading bench. When I size .270 Winchester I have to clear the bench of loose stuff.

    Ah well, another project I probably won't get to.

    When do you expect from a techie? Nothing but the best!!!! What can't that kid not build? I can only sit here and be envious and say congratulations on a job well done. Slap up (oops wrong wording) design some shelves in there some place to hang a few items and go to work. Job well done!!!!!
