I just finished putting my new garage door on my newly converted carport to garage. This means for literally the first time in my life I have a garage!!! (I honestly cant even say how happy I am about that). I now CAN put up a reloading bench in there. The big question is should I, and if so, how much space is optimal? My other big hobby is machine stuff out of wood, leather, polymers and occasionally metal. So while this garage will soon have good vacuum and air handling, some amount of sawdust is likely at first. The leather doesn't make much mess, the polymers are a fairly clean process and I take my welding outside, so they shouldn't be a factor. However, with moving tools and some storage from the house to garage, I will now have room to put up the bench inside. Given this option, and the dust issue in the garage, would I be better off finding a place inside for it? Garage is not conditioned, so while its insulation helps blunt the heat and cold, it will have temp swings with the seasons. My gut feeling is that primers dont care about normal household temps, neither does brass or bullets, but I'm less sure about powder. The inside is probably also less humid. I suspect that inside is going to be considered a better place, but I figured I'd ask since the garage would enable a much larger bench. The next topic is how machines can be setup to maximize work space and work flow. An inside table will of necessity be smaller than one in the garage, but if I have an idea of how much space should be around each type of machine, and what the best layout is, I can determine if I have the space to do it.

Anyway, how best can those things be laid out, and how much space is considered the best (not minimum, since I'm a big tall guy). I figure in the end I'll end up moving stuff around till its just right for me, but some tips on initial layout could save me some grief. Also, is there any reason I couldn't put the case cleaning gear in the garage? Wanna kill these ads? We can help!
